    Hi all I have a Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Morrum SX 1601c Ultra Mag I am selling if anybody would be interested in buying. It is 8.5/10 externally and 11/10 mechanically, it is crazy smooth and spins way faster than some newer reels now. It is so smooth that you would have to spin the handle to believe it. Definitely a quality reel, this reel was made for the JDM market so not much information is available for this reel. Keep in mind this is an older reel but feels solid and smooth. It has not been fished in saltwater yet and this is probably the reason why I am selling or trading it, Im not sure if it is saltwater safe and I cannot find much information about this reel anywhere. EDIT: So I have found out that the inner side plates are magnesium, therefore this would make it a freshwater only reel.

    The reel has modifications, it has a JDM Avail Thumb Bar (stock one was ugly and plastic and made it hard to access the spool), it has a swept carbon fiber handle with red accents and upgraded knobs. It also has aftermarket JDM spools you can purchase online if you like.

    Reel is spooled with 40lb braid (I believe) and 12lb fluro topshot.

    The cast control knob makes click noises and star drag clicks. The drag is still smooth. It has a magnetic braking system.

    It has a 6:3:1 gear ratio. It is a lefty reel. It is Made In Sweden. Edit: Selling it for $140

    That is a very nice round reel . Small capacity ,good for light line presentations . Round reels have fallen out of favor for low profile , guess everybody has smaller hands as far as palming the reel , I like round reels but I am an old coot and what do I know , round reels just don't have the COOL factor , even if built really well . Keep trying someone will want it . Good luck !

    Thank you, yes this is a very fine round reel, built very sturdy and its made in Sweden which not alot of Abus are made there anymore unless its a high end one. Shame it cannot be fished in saltwater otherwise I would keep it.

    You can fish it in salt just need to take little more care in cleaning and maintenance . On a light steelhead the rod and 6 or 8 lb mono would be a perch slaying machine . Tight lines

    Yeah I have my reels that I fish in salt, I just didn't want to use it in salt because of how smooth it is right now, it would be a shame for it to lose the smoothness somehow.
