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 + 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.

  • 2 stainless steel ball bearings + 1 roller bearing provides smooth operation
  • Carbon Matrix™  drag system provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range
  • Duragear™  brass gear for extended gear life
  • 6 pin centrifugal brake gives consistent brake pressure throughout the cast
  • Synchronized level wind system improves line lay and castability
  • Anti Distortion Spool design for extreme loads
  • Line out alarm (6500 model sizes only)
