Reel question

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at getting a new reel for fishing that includes pike up to about 10 pounds. No really large lures. I've had good luck with one of the Ambassasdeur round reels and am considering the Record model. Is that a good reel? Does Ambassadeur still make good quality reels?

Thanks.

they still make very good reels,

The record is tough to beat for the money. Very smooth and will last a long time.

Don't over look the c4, great reel for $40-$50 less and it has a higher gear ratio which is good for smaller baits.

If pike are going to be the largest of your quarry you may want to look at a low profile baitcaster. It is a bit easier on the hand, easier to hold on to for extended periods of time, it does however lower your line capacity, but maybe something to look into.

Sorry about the rambling, In regards to your record question, it is a great reel used one for muskie this summer and loved it. Abu's round baitcasters are all great.

Thanks. The comment about the C4 is very well taken. I have a narrow-spool C4 that I use for bass fishing, and have had it for several years. It's excellent.

They make very good reels. I have had a couple of them, and i have never had any problems with them. They have always been great for me. Only part i have problem with, is that they dont caught fish. LOL laugh.gif

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
