Spotlight On: Ambassadeur Abu Garcia
The Abu Garcia Company was founded in Sweden in 1921, originally as a Swiss watch factory. Fortunately for us, the owner’s son was an avid angler. He started researching and developing fishing reel line, releasing the product to the pubic in 1941. In 1952 the company released the famous Ambassadeur Abu Garcia.
Nearly seventy years later, the company still manufactures the famous Ambassadeur and other high quality Abu Garcia fishing reels. What is remarkable is how little change the reels have undergone. The few modifications include improved drag washers, additional bearings, and no-slip spools. When you get it right the first time there isn’t much need for change!
