Abu Garcia Alphamar Line Counter Reels are round style reels designed for trolling applications using downrigger gear. Anglers all over the country will find Abu Garcia's new Alphamar Line Counter Reels suitable for their deep water trolling needs including kokanee, trout and salmon trolling applications. The Alphamar Reels take the legendary Swedish engineering to the big lakes, adapting new technologies that make them perfect for trolling with downriggers. The Syncro Drag feature allows anglers to drop baits with a downrigger without the need to put the reel in free spool—by rotating the handle counterclockwise 1/3 of a turn, drag pressure is reduced by 50%, allowing baits to be dropped without having to disengage the reel. Very useful with downriggers. It boasts 2 stainless steel bearings, graphite frame and sideplates, Duragear brass gear, and a powerful 4.7:1 gear ratio.In addition to a mechanical line counter that displays the amount of line out in feet, the Alphamar LC Syncro 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 using downriggers as it allows baits to be dropped easily without having to disengage the reel.
We offer the Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Alphamar Line Counter Reels in two sizes: 16 & 20 both right hand models.
