   Thanks for the introduction G...I haven't had one of these yet. The schematic I looked at had a 3-stack, reminiscent of the 5500Cs. Seems like a right usable reel! Cool

you're right Mo, I think I checked a wrong reel model, 3 stack should offer a nice drag number

   I agree. When it comes to catfishing, my little 5000s seem to run out of "umph" when the cats get above the 15 pound mark. My brother's 5500Cs offer more lifting strength with their 3-stack. A 7000 is my favorite Abu catter. I've never met an Ambassadeur I didn't like! Wink

Happy 4th of July!.
I have abu garcia ambassadeur ultra mag II , mag control is weird. up to number 5 makes bird nest, 6-10 holds better but casting distance is limited. however it is very light reel, low profile bait casting. very smooth mechanics.
does any one have comparison chart between all models.?

Very interesting reels.  Wonder what the weight and line capacity is for the smallest of the series?
