ABU GARCIA® C3
Brute Strength Meets Refined Style
Redesigning an iconic reel that anglers have grown to love is a tough task, but
Abu Garcia® met the challenge with the newest adaptation of the C3. The result is
improved castability with some modern performance updates. The heritage continues with
the new C3, designed to meet the demands of the most hard-core angler.
Built in Sweden, the C3 incorporates three stainless steel ball bearings plus one roller
bearing and utilizes the durable Carbon Matrix™ drag system. The addition of a compact,
bent handle and star gives anglers a better ergonomic feel. The C3’s synchronized level
wind system also helps to improve line lay. The six-pin centrifugal brake gives anglers consistent brake pressure and
control throughout the cast. The gear ratio on all C3 reels is 5.3:1.
The 4600/4601 sizes have a line capacity of 160 yards of 12-pound monofilament or 155 yards of 30-pound braid.
5500/5501 models have a line capacity of 240 yards of 12-pound monofilament or 235-yards of 30 pound braid.
6500/6501 models hold 320 yards of 12-pound monofilament and 310 yards of 30-pound braid.
The Abu Garcia C3 round reel has an MSRP of $119.95. For complete specifications and information on this reel and
