5 Stars Simply the best., 2007-03-08
Reviewer: Shane Mullins

The regular Morrums excel with heavier baits. They are not a finesse reel. Great for big swimbaits and you can winch a stump up with them. The SX reels excel for small finesse baits. I toss 1/8 jigs with my SX1600C.

5 Stars ABU back on track., 2005-03-21
Reviewer: Johnny A

My first, "good" fishing reel was an Ambassadeur 5500C.
Christmas 1974, I was 13, blah, blah, blah.
As I began fishing bass tournaments 15 years later, it was
necessary to expand my equipment selection and my 5500C and
4500Cs just weren't as adaptable as necessary.
It was my opinion, ABU wasn't keeping up with their level of
quality and after much expensive experimentation, I felt
comfortable with the Daiwa line of reels, eventually the most
recent offering, the Alphas.
It still left a gap in my equipment as I prefer round reels for
crankbaits and spinnerbaits. I saw the Morrum SX1600C UM S2
on ebay and picked one up. The price was in line with the
Shimano Scorpions and a little less than the Alphas.
The reels is smooth, strong, tight and solidly built. Excellent
casting and drag, smooth retrieve. In comparison to the other
reels, it stands out with its performance.

3 Stars Good reel but the price is too high, 2005-03-08
Reviewer: Jack Sneider

This reel is supposed to be a high end ambassadeur. Generally 3 times the price of a C3. Is it worth the cost? The Morrum is tighter than the C3 and the handle turning is a bit smoother. The frame definitely feels stronger. The drags are better too.

But I would not pay 3 TIMES the amount to get a Morrum over a C3. I got one on sale at FFO but I still feel that I paid too much. I often find myself picking up my trusty C3 more than the Morrum because it just feels more comfortable to me. It feels lighter and I can cast it just as well, if not better since I'm more used to it.

In a nutshell, more expensive doesn't mean a better reel all the time. Go with what you feel comfortable with, even if it's not a "high-end" reel.
