Customer Reviews
Ken
A lot of quality for the dollar   (from prior model)
Pros: construction; bearings; drag
Cons: excessive grease from factory
Best Uses:
Comments: The reel felt "sluggish" when I opened the box so I broke it down completely and removed all the factory grease and oil. I replaced the factory lubes with modest amounts of SuperLube PTFE on the brass and Quantum Hot Sauce in the bearings. The reel is now smooth as silk and adequately fast. Dis-assembly, lubing and reassembly was easy because all the parts fit well. The parts quality was noticeably good, IMO, especially the bearings (including one on the worm drive) and the drag washers (some kind of graphite rather than a soft material - maybe CarbonTex?). I kept my drag washers dry and the reel feels quite smooth to me. The only flaw I noticed was that the traditional knurled thumb screws on my older Abus were absent on my new C3. For all I know, 4600s may never have sported the iconic Swedish screws (I have many Ambassadeurs but this is my first 4600). Breakdown was not affected - just my ego. The rest of the finish is fine and far exceeds the cruddy finishes on the Chinese level wind Abus. Maybe it is just unfamiliar to me, but the new angled drag star and handle are of no particular value to me so far. Overall, I'm quite impressed with this little reel. I'll update after it gets some scratches and I can bring myself to put it on a 7'6" flippin' stick I use for pike glide baits.
