Made in Sweden Abu Ambassadeur 2500C - Burgandy circa 1970's

This particular gem is the mainstay of my arsenal for light freshwater snakehead fishing.

It's been a while since the manufacturer made a reel of this quality but in it's day this was the prime reel for casting topwaters for biggun Largemouth Bass.

I've put a few years into this one and say It's my favourite reel for throwing smaller lures.
Originally the sideplates were gunmetal but I decided to change them up for an original deadstock burgundy colour.  This particular reel was made in June of 1976, Sweden.

Enjoy.  This pair with my XMG lamiglass is my goto for snakies.  Ultralight setup!
