The Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Reels are considered Round Baitcast Reels, which is a more traditional version of the "baitcast" reels. Known for its simple design and ease of maintenance, Round Baitcast Reels were initially used for a variety of applications. Overtime, casting reels evolved and a new Low Profile design became increasingly popular for anglers making repeated casts with artificial lures. Today, large Round Baitcast reels along with Conventional reels are frequently used in trolling and deep jigging or "dropping" applications. The round baitcast reel in smaller sizes are still frequently used by more traditional anglers for bass fishing and freshwater predator fishing. The Abu Gracia Ambassadeur is a perfect example of a round baitcast reel.
