How would one celebrate a hundred (100) years old? I don’t know, but a hundred years is impressive. 2021 is Abu Garcia’s 100th year on Earth; 100 anniversaries. So how is Abu Garcia celebrating their 100 years old? To commemorate Abu Garcia’s 100 years, Abu Garcia launched the Abu Garcia AMB 6500 PRO ROCKET ABU 100 Years conventional reel.
Why A Conventional Round Reel?
Should you hop into a time machine and travel back to 1941, AB Urfabriken (what Abu Garcia was then called) debuted their first fishing reel called the ABU Record; a reel that Abu Garcia started its journey into the world of fishing with. ABU Record was a conventional round reel; hence it is only fitting that Abu Garcia commemorates their 100 years with a conventional round reel.
Awesome collection reel. The ABU 100 YEARS shield makes this reel special.
