Abu Garcia is no longer manufacturing the Trophy Collection Series of reels
with the laser-etched pictures of fish on the sideplate. These reels are
becoming very difficult to find and will be collector's items in the near
future. When our supply is exhausted, we will not be able to obtain additional
the Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 6500 TCM (Trophy Collection – Muskie)
baitcasting reel. Not only is this a handsome reel to look at, but it carries
