Abu Garcia C3 Catfish Special

Description and Application: The C3 reel platform offer anglers a unique catfishing package that will stand up to years of abuse from large, hungry whiskered critters. The Ambassadeur Catfish Special starts with three stainless steel ball bearings +1 roller bearing system and a smooth and consistent Carbon Matrix drag system. Accented by a powerful extended bent handle and a power knob, anglers have the added torque required during intense catfish battles. The 6-pin centrifugal brake delivers controlled casting while the synchronized level wind system ensures even line lay on the spool. The reel is available in both a 5.3:1 and 4.1:1, and in 6500 and 7000 sizes.

Staff Perspective: Whether you chase giant flatheads, hefty blues or angry channel cats, these critters are known for dishing out substantial abuse. You need gear that will not only hold up, but last for a long time. Not only does the ambassadeur reel family carry a long-term recogonizable name and legacy, it looks good doing it.
