Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Classic C3 Casting Reel -
It's hard to improve on a classic design without taking away from what made it a classic. Abu Garcia shows how to do it right with the new Classic C3 Reel. It features high-performance gearing (lasts up to 200% longer, improving on the hand-cut quality that Ambassadeur reels are famous for). You'll also appreciate a more durable levelwind. The Carbon Matrix Drag will handle battle after battle without fail. Two precision stainless-steel ball bearings and one roller bearing make for dependable and smooth action. Also includes adjustable six-pin spool centrifugal brake to handle any fishing conditions. The Classic C3 is one reel you can rely on when it's time to hammer those trophy fish.


  • Made of stainless steel and brass


  • Redesigned to deliver a better performance
  • Instant Anti-Reverse
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 C3 model 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.

Casts like a dream

I bought the reel for drift fishing for Chinook Salmon from the bank of the Rouge river OR. I loaded it with 25 Lb. P line. Using an 8 foot 6 in. Heavy action Ugly Stik, it casts the 1 ½ oz weight like a dream. The star drag system worked perfectly. I was able at land a 19, and a 22 Lb. Salmon without a hitch.
