AMBASSADEUR REELS

Recommended Posts

Let's show our ambassadeur reels here. 

I'll start.

These two from my collection I believe are my first I bought and the last one I've purchased .

The black was originally a 6000c that I bought on a rod at an estate sale for $50. I was in my 20's and had no idea about the reels and how I would later on in life get into these reels. 

It's had lots of upgrades and Ryan at Hatteras Jack's did the mag.

The red one I got custom from Jerry Foran and it's a 5500 only for freshwater.

was fishing the canal early one morning when I had a big back lash. About 330 or so when I casted out and a backlash occured. Well it just so happens that it was a year when the canal was loaded with fish and one took my grs plug while I was trying to get it out. I had to reel over the mess and get the fish in and then fix the mess after the fish was released, pia.

Always when you try to just get a little further than the last cast.

I just came back from casting this and it casts a mile.

Some of these Abu‘s are stock, and some are modified!

The two red 6000’s are a couple of my favorites!
Well, at first it seemed like this would be fun!

That is, until one of my Abus accidentally got engaged into free spool and lost 350 yards of 15 pd triplefish camo!

All nice and neat coiled up on the ground, until the reel backlashed!

 that’s the Red Abu 7000 C3!

Dammit, lol!

So, I hope you enjoyLMAO!
