Ambassadeur 6500 conversion question

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

Just found this website after being a regular on another surf fishing website, and I'm enjoying the posts here. Will have to add my reports here as I go out. Anyway, I have a question for you:

 

I have an Abu Garcia 6501 Ambassadeur with levelwind mounted on a 12' Ugly Stik that I use for bait fishing off the sand. Any idea what percentage increase in distance I could get if I did the conversion you all talk about?

I would try the distance casting forum, for a question like this.

 

But, with a non-level wind reel, using the same rod I would use a levelwind reel with I get more distance. How much more? I don't know what the percentage is, but the casting distance is greater.smile.gif
