Abu Garcia Ambassadeur C4 Round Baitcasting Reels are new for 2013! Got a quick look at these reels at ICAST this summer and now they are finally in stock. The new C4s have been redesigned and are much smoother than the older models. They also have improved gearing. Yeah, they’re still made in Sweden.
An Abu Garcia C4 Round Baitcasting Reel is a lifer. This is one of those reels that will last you a lifetime. Just take good care of it and it will hold up well. Fish an Ambassadeur C4 in freshwater or saltwater. We always had one on our boat when I was a kid.
The C4 features all aluminum construction, five ball bearings, an ergonomic bent handle and star, a fast 6.3:1 gear ratio and a six pin centrifugal brake. These reels are great for casting, or bottom fishing. They are slightly lighter than last year’s model and you can feel the improvement to the gearing. Abu also changed the cosmetics and they are a much nicer shade of blue.
