I bought this reel as a replacement for my old 506 which I have had for over 30years, and is a great trotting reel!
However, the new 606 MK11 i bought recently has a niggling fault. The line release system, button and pin, has a frustrating tendency to not operate frequently! I have used the reel on 5 occasions now, and each time I have been frustrated by the frequent malfunction of the line release system! I still have my old 506, the same "winding cup" also fits the new model, and it works perfectly! So the fault is with the new winding cup.

On the plus side, at last they have added an optional anti reverse knob. The old 506 had a fixed anti reverse, which many of us who used them didn't like as it meant we couldn't play fish by back winding. This led to many of us into removing the pawl to allow winding both ways.

An attractive, lightweight reel, but such a shame that the line release lets it down badly.

I have to say I am biased towards this reel.

Once I used one I didn't want to go back to a fixed spool, and I have now just purchased the latest model.

If you have never used a closed face reel before the simplicity of its design will come as a surprise.

Basically, the spool itself moves, there is no bail arm and most importantly, very little chance of any snags or "birds nests"

You push the top button to release to wind arm under the spool cover and then turn the handle to activate it. Its absolutely brilliant for trotting and is perfect in windy days with all the line covered.

It comes with 3 shallow spools each with a 100m of 3Lb line capacity and 1 deep spool with 200m of 6Lb capacity.

The quality and action of the reel seem very good. It has an adjustable drag on the reel arm, an anti-reverse, back wind lever and also a drag lock button.

It also comes with a nice strong case to protect it and spare chenille strips to line the edges of the spools to act as an extra prevention against snags, but in my experience these last years.

I know alot of anglers shun closed face reels, but for me this reel is perfect for river/canal fishing of all types and I don't use anything else

Been using Closed Face reels what seems like forever , Started with a Shakespeare International Match ,then an Olympic closed face , then purchased a 506 AND a 506m , DAM CFS , ABU 501 , 2 x ABU 507 Gold Max's AND an ABU 1044.

why So many reels you say? , well a long while back i was doing lots of competition fishing and on a couple of occassions ( bringing up children for example ) i gave up and sold a lot of my gear . Now i am back and have IMHO purchased the best out of those listed ,The New ABU/GARCIA 506 MK2.
It fishes as well as the old 506M , but synchro Drag is a lot smoother and better and you can have a backwind like the brilliant ABU 501.
It comes with a good number of spools too is easier to strip down and is lighter.
I use mine all the time , running water , still water canal fishing and just recently i managed to use the large capacity spool , filled it with 6LBS Line and fished Bolognese style , PERFECT.

I had bought the Abu 706 and loved it. My wife recently started fishing so I gave her by Abu 706 and as she would not let me have it back I bought the new Abu 506 and now have a finer reel than hers.
