Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Alphamar Line Counter Reels
Please select an option
Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Alphamar Line Counter Reels offer a mechanical line counter that displays the amount of line out in feet and also incorporates a highly adjustable Synco drag system. To engage the Syncro drag, crank the handle 1/3 of a turn in a counter-clockwise direction. With the handle in this position, drag is instantly decreased by 50%. Once lures are in the desired position, crank the handle forward to resume normal operation. This feature is especially useful when using downriggers as it allows baits to be dropped easily without having to disengage the reel.
Features of Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Alphamar Line Counter Reels include:
- A Carbon Matrix drag system which provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range
- Machined aluminum spool that provides strength without adding excess weight
- Extended throw paddle handle for increased power
- Duragear brass gear for extended gear life
- Graphite frame and sideplates
|Nice reel, just what I wanted.|

I used the reel only once and loved it. I was mooching for ling cod so I did not take advantage of all the features. It was nice to know exactly where my bait was in relation to fish on the "finder". Very smooth action on reel in and line out. Only problem was that the window for line counter became foggy. I can solve that problem by not putting the rod and reel in the boat the night before fishing. The humididity is extreme here and next day in the sun the window fogged. I was able to remove the 3 screws that hold the cover of the line counter on and clean it up. Problem solved. I would recommend this reel to anyone. I own 2 other Abu Garcia reels and the build on this reel is different than the older ones.Very little metal and mostly hard "plastic".
Pros: Lots of features, Good looks, Price is reasonable
Cons: no longer made of aluminum and steel
