Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 5500 Classic C3 Casting Reels


Abu Garcia 5500 C3

Built on the rock solid fundamentals that have made this series so popular for so long, the new C3 focuses on improved casting performance, while still maintaining the same durability and dependability that has made it legendary. The venerable Abu Garcia C3 round baitcasting reels have undergone a slow transformation over the decades—and while each new model retains its proven, bulletproof power and performance, it also adds carefully considered touches that make it stronger, lighter, more efficient, and smoother. The benefits of this Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® C3 Classic Round Baitcast Reel include a 25% lighter spool design, a 65% lighter aluminum line guide, a bent star and handle for more efficient retrieves and more manageable fish fights. The Duragear brass gearing adds even more durability to a reel that is virtually indestructible, and the ever popular 5.3:1 gear ratio, linked to the more efficient bent handle and drag star, lets you muscle in even the biggest scaly warriors. Appropriate for a huge variety of gamefish, including bass, striper, catfish, walleye, pike, muskie, lake trout, salmon, snook, redfish, and more.
