  • 2 stainless steel ball bearings provides smooth operation
  • Carbon Matrix drag system gives smooth drag performance
  • Syncro™ drag allows drag pressure to be quickly reduced without changing the drag setting
  • Machined aluminum spool provides strength without adding excess weight
  • Extended throw paddle handle for increased power
  • Duragear™ brass gear for extended gear life
  • Line Counter
  • Graphite frame and sideplates
In addition to a mechanical line counter that displays the amount of line out in feet, the Alphamar LC Syncro conventional reel incorporates a highly adjustable syncro drag system. By cranking the handle 1/3 of a turn in a counterclockwise motion, a 50% decrease in drag pressure is achieved. This feature is especially useful when fishing with downriggers as it allows baits to be dropped easily without having to disengage the reel.

Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® Alphamar LC is rated 4.2581 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best line counter reels on the market! For the money, you can't beet these reels. These reels perform equal to several higher priced reels on the market. I have used the Alphamar's for two seasons and over 250 fishing trips and they still look and perform like the day I got them. Awesome reels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome reel for the money!!!! I bought 3 Abu Garcia Alphamar 16 LC and I love them...They have tight but yet smooth drag system, even after all the salmon I have caught on the Columbia river still perform like new. Also line counter works great and never an issue. Last bearing are smooth an tight with no problems, I grease them every other trip from the hard use of fishing....I am very happy to own these and plan on getting more.. Thank you Abu for the wonderful reels you have came out with...Abu Garcia For LIFE

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great reel for the price I bought two of these one for my dad and one for myself. I love the fact that I can adjust the drag with the handle rather than trying to turn the star wheel when reeling. We use these to troll for stripers so we use the line out alarm (clicker). I dont like the little switch on the side that operates the clicker it doesnt protrude enough to easily switch it so I fabricated my own switch knob. It holds plenty of line for my type of fishing and the linecounter works pretty good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a swiss watch:Takes a lickin and keeps on tic I've lived on the west coast for over 40 years. It didn't take me long to realizehow much more effective casting reels were to spin. I've fished hard over these many years using many of the great Ambassadeur reels. We fish primarily steelhead and salmon. I've never had one minor thing go wrong with these reels, they are indestructible. One year landing a 63 lb. Chinook, piece of cake. I'm getting too old to do much fishing now but love those reels that I always have 8-10 on hand. Garcia Ambassadeur are a proud compliment to the fishing industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Trolling Reel This reel is great for trolling, it is very smooth. The drag system sets this reel apart. The ability to back reel and reduce the drag 50% is awesome. When guiding I can have the drags set and the clients don't have to mess with the star drag. Its very easy for them to understand the backreel to loosen the drag when fighting fish. It also works great when trolling fireline (no stretch) for having the drag set loose for when the fish hits. All you have to do is start reeling and the drag is set to a good tension for fighting the fish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Part put in backwards at manufacturer This is a follow-up to my review titled "Drag Stripped". The reel was under warranty so I took the reel into the local Abu authorized service center. They fixed the reel, saying that a part related to the anti-reverse had been put in backwards. I had not opened up the reel before using it for the first time so it came that way from the manufacturer. Given that it wasn't a part that failed, I'll give the reel another try. But, pretty disappointed in Abu, nonetheless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Drag stripped Large Chinook stripped the drag. I hadn't checked the drag for a while so it was too tight in all likelihood. But, I was extremely surprised it failed before a knot or the leader line. Was only the second fish on this reel. Needless to say, I'm not happy. Also, the line-counter is inconsistent -- start out at zero, let line out, reel back in and it won't end in zero. How is that possible. Was a big Abu fan, but this experience leaves me with doubts.
