Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Line Counter Reel 4.1 5 11 11
50/50 The reels have proven to be as excellent as all standard 6500 series reels. The problem is the line counter. I have been a faithful user of the Ambassadeur reels of all models, but there should be some changes made in improving the line counter. They worked good for a while and then began to skip countiing the feet as the line spooled out. Pulling out on the reset button helps for a while , but then that quits. Over all , repairing the line counter or changing it to a different type could make this in my opinion the best reel on the market. I would not recommend this product unless the counter is fixed. I would however , recommend the standard 5000,6000,6500,&7000 series reels. October 13, 2008
awesomereel abu garcia is the best quick shipping great service November 25, 2014
Great reel, marginal line counter Like every other Ambassadeur, the reel itself is bulletproof, but the linecounter needs work. Every 4 or 5 times, it stops turning and needs to be reset and is pretty much useless in rain as the linecounter window fogs. Pure Fishing needs to start reading these reviews and do something about the line counter on these otherwise excellent reels. May 28, 2011
Excellent service Excellent reel, smooth drag I have the 6500LC. I like it better than the Shimano Tekota. The line counter stopped working after 4 years. I sent it in to Abu Garcia and they sent me a new one within a week !! Now that's service. April 22, 2012

Hi, the line counter system in the reel is not removable. You can order a side plate from a C3 reel and the cogwheel for the worm gear that would be about all you can do. Thanks!
