For Ambassadeur Reel geeks only

  1. Here is the new custom Ambassadeur I built for a reel grip demo at the BassMaster Clasic Expo at the end of the month. Then it goes on the St. Croix 7 ft crankin rod I just got from SwolenGoat.
    I gues you would call it a souped up 5600C6 Mag. It has upgraded ABEC bearings on both side of the spool and worm gear. Bearing on the idler. Custom ceramic pawl riding the level wind worm. The new Ambassadeur drag washers. The drag plates have been hand honed on glass for flatness. New for 2008 Pro series reel grips. And all lubed up with Quantum Hot Sauce grease and oil.

    Looks nice man. I may have to put a pic of the custom Abu 6000 you did for me.

    Looks good. Those grips sure stand out. Sounds like the improvements will make it a sweet fishing machine!

    I have the same reel in the C4 model & I also replaced my bearings with
    ABEC 2 series - never thought to up grade my drag washers though.
