Abu Garcia's Ambassadeur Anti-Backlash Reel

🕔Mon, Mar 21st, 2011


New from Abu Garcia is the revolutionary Ambassadeur 5600AB (anti-backlash) reel. This highly functional reel instantly senses line build-up throughout the cast and automatically controls the spool before over-runs can occur. Simply stated, this progressive design completely eliminates frustrating bird's nests that are commonly associated with the use of bait-casting reels, especially among the novice anglers.

Whether you're skipping a jig under a low hanging dock, casting drift-rigs in rivers, or throwing spinnerbaits into a 15 mph headwind, the Ambassadeur 5600AB delivers the confidence to cast without backlash even under the most demanding situations. This Anti-Backlash System (ABSâ„¢) eliminates spool overruns and back-lash by sensing loose coils of line instantaneously. The reel then applies momentary spool braking to prevent a backlash.

Unlike conventional magnetic, centrifugal and mechanical braking systems, the Ambassadeur 5600AB applies spool braking only when it's needed, so it casts today's light lines and lures with ease.

For angler who are comfortable with thumb control casts, this reels gives you the option to revert back to a thumb control at the flip of a switch.

Just flick the 5600AB reel's switch to the off position. Then thread the line directly through the levelwind and adjust the standard mechanical brake. In moments you're back to "thumb control" casting without having to change reels. In addition to its revolutionary Anti-Backlash system, this reel delivers the smooth casting performance of three stainless steel bearings and the solid hookset of Instant Anti-Reverse. It all comes together to make the 5600AB an essential tool for the avid angler.
