Built on the rock-solid fundamentals that have made this series so popular, the new C4 focuses on improved casting performance, while still maintaining the same durability and dependability that has made it legendary.

This version of the revered Abu Garcia C4 round baitcasting reel retains its proven, bulletproof power and performance—and incorporates carefully considered touches that make it stronger, lighter, more efficient, and smoother. The benefits of this model 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 2 brass gearing adds even more durability to a reel that is already virtually indestructible, and the ever popular 6.4:1 gear ratio, linked to the more efficient bent handle and drag star, lets you muscle in 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Affordable Quallity I bought the C4 5600, to match up with an inshore rod for bass and halibut fishing. Spooled it with 40# braid and 25# flouro top shot. Excellent casting with 5/8-1.5 oz swimbaits. The reel performs just like I knew it would since I have owned several of the older Abus, and always have been a fan. The higher speed is a plus also. I like the feel of the round reel better than the so called low profile, but that's a matter of taste. These have no external cast control, but the brakes are adjustable if you need them. Salt water use has never been a problem with these reels, just keep em clean and maintain them. March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by favorite round baitcaster great reel compared to shimano cardiff both around the same price, the c4 cast smoother and further when it comes to retrieving line the shimano is smoother but not by much, another plus of the c4 is the metal line guide its not plastic like a lot of other reels, i also want to mention the drag is very smooth, i love that they have a bent handle and star drag it makes it a much more ergonomic reel, i have the reel paired with shimano salmon rod but as soon as abu garcia produces salmon rods i will be one of the first to purchasing the rod they make great products at great prices December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swedish perfection I have used Abu for years, but this new C4 really improved on what I thought was perfection. Classic good looks, dependability and precision.....it is the workhorse of my collection. My only complaint is that they don't make the larger ones in Sweden. I refuse to buy the Chinese Abus. My favorite setup is the C4 paired with the 8' Ugly Stick for catfish. I have reeled in lots of BIG fish...blues, stripers, etc.... Purchase this as a gift to yourself and pass it on to the next generation. It will last that long if cleaned seasonally. November 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Reel for Big Fish This is a great all around reel. I bought it for salmon fishing and paired it up with an Ugly Stik and it handled 30 pound king salmon just fine. Drag is smooth, casts a country mile, and has enough power to haul in the big ones. If you're looking for a reel that is reliable and wont break the bank, look no further than this one.

Hi, thank you for your question. Per the manufacturer web site, they do not list any C4 models with line-out alarm. http://www.abugarcia.com/products/reels/round-reels/ambassadeur-round-baitcast/c4

Details: 
im wondering where the extra bearing is on this reel cause its always been known among abu fans the the number 4 in c4 meant it had 4 bearings, c3 3 bearings. cog? duel worm gear or single worm gear?

i know the old c4 reels had 1 worm gear bearing, 2 spool bearings and a instant anti reverse bearing making a total of 4 bearings. so where the 5th bearing on this reel?

Brake access!

Details: 
Those this new version of the C4 have the same access to the brakes as the older model? I see on the picture that it doesn't have the nerld bolts on the side! So do you need a screw driver to remove the cover to set the brakes! On the water, that would be a bit of a pain! The old way was way easier than this one looks like! No screwdriver needed! I still believe that this new version is just as good, if not better, than the old one!
