Abu Garcia® Baitcaster Reels — Power for the Pull

Any angler who has battled a catfish knows the draw of these monstrous fish. Above all else, they need strength for the battle. Abu Garcia® Round Baitcast Reels are loved by warriors against the big fish for their efficient fighting power, controlled casts, and a drag system that provides smooth consistent pressure. When our Ambassadeur® hit the market, it was an instant classic. It remains a market leader in its category by being super lightweight and having plenty of power to haul giant catfish. For urban kayakers, quality and extreme castability make our Round Baitcasters top of the list for chucking baits. Hungry for more catfish? See how two of the best kayak catfish anglers in the country go from weekend whiskerers to true trophy chasers with Abu® gear.
