Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Reel C4


The tradition continues. With silky-smooth operation and power to spare, the new line of Abu Garcia C4 round reels carries on its predecessor’s legacy. Each model in the line-up incorporates the same trusted durability and engineering that generations of anglers have come to expect. The team upgraded performance and styling and merged these elements with proven strength and engineering.

Built in Sweden, the C4 series includes an aluminium frame and side-plates, four stainless steel ball bearings plus roller bearing, compact bent handle and star and a 6.3:1 gear ratio. With its 15-pound max drag, synchronized level wind system and Duragear 2 gear system, the C4 is always up to the challenge.

The C4 family also features the Carbon Matrix™ drag system that gives anglers smooth and consistent drag pressure that is crucial for battling hard fighting fish. These workhorse reels, offered in 4600, 5600 and 6600 sizes, are designed for a variety of techniques and species. Left hand retrieve models are also available in the two most popular sizes – the 5601 and 6601.
