Built on the rock solid fundamentals that have made this series so popular for so long, the new C3 focuses on improved casting performance, while still maintaining the same durability and dependability that has made it legendary. The venerable Abu Garcia C3 round baitcasting reels have undergone a slow transformation over the decades—and while each new model retains its proven, bulletproof power and performance, it also adds carefully considered touches that make it stronger, lighter, more efficient, and smoother. The benefits of this Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® C3 Classic Round Baitcast Reel include a 25% lighter spool design, a 65% lighter aluminum line guide, a bent star and handle for more efficient retrieves and more manageable fish fights. The Duragear brass gearing adds even more durability to a reel that is virtually indestructible, and the ever popular 5.3:1 gear ratio, linked to the more efficient bent handle and drag star, lets you muscle in even the biggest scaly warriors. Appropriate for a huge variety of gamefish, including bass, striper, catfish, walleye, pike, muskie, lake trout, salmon, snook, redfish, and more.

  • The smoothest-casting C3 ever!
  • Lightweight spool design (25% lighter)
  • Aluminum line guide ( 65% lighter)
  • New bent star and handle
  • Carbon Matrix Drag™ System
  • New sideplate design
  • 6-pin centrifugal brake
  • Smooth 3-bearing system
  • Instant Anti-Reverse™
  • Synchronized levelwind

Woundering I am thinking about buying one or maybe two of these reels and I was woundering if they have the bait clicker on them or not. I need some that does. July 18, 2014
John Deer Tough i have several several Abu Garcia reels,7 to be exact. 3 for big river catfish 6500's ... also have a 4600C4 , FLW 5500HCL with 6:3-1, and a 5500C3 and 4600C3 for Bass fishin'... my go to reels are the 4600C3 and 5500C3 both on Bionic Blades and the 5500HCL for buzzin... have had the 4600C3 and 5500C3 for 10 years and still work and look like new and i fish a lot...my routine maintenance has been less than stellar and they still work flawlessly ..need i say more? June 27, 2014
Great quality reel. I have the 6501 (lefty) and am very pleased with the reel. This model does have a clicker that is nice and loud. The casting is smooth and is easy to control. The retrieve feels very smooth and fast. I like the construction as it is not overly complicated and easy to clean and perform maintenance. I did take off the plastic tab over the spool as I felt that it got in the way and looked cheap. It simply clips onto the reel. The spool can hold a good deal of line which is to my liking. Once spooled it is a bit heavy but that is no issue to me. I currently use the reel for my catfish rig and light ocean. I clean it after every use and hope to make it last as long as I can. I am looking forward to purchasing another one in the future and recommend this to anyone interested. December 2, 2013
Satisfied I ordered this reel to pair up with a shakespeare's ugly stick catfish. Went channel cat and sturgeon fishing and I landed a few from 7 to 21 pounds. For the firsts few casts I had the spooling tension tight but quickly released tension on the spool to almost freespool and had no trouble at all casting it. It looks and feel sturdy, strong and durable. Would recommend. October 15, 2013

A: 
This depends. Freshwater will not be much of a problem. Saltwater with salt and sand getting in the line will cause more wear over time. In the grand scheme of things not cleaning and caring for the reel will cause a problem before the line guide is an issue.
