This gear set will convert any UltraCast Ambassadeur casting reel (see note below), from 4000 to 6600 size, to the fast 6.3:1 "High Speed" gearing system. Normal reels come with a 5.3:1 ratio which is a good all-around ratio, some people need a HIGHER ratio set to speed up the retrieve a bunch. What the ratio means is that for every turn of the handle (_:1) the spool will revolve 6.3 times (6.3:1). This gear set will crank in lures and plugs at a really fast retrieve speed so you don't have to turn the handle as fast....it really works!!
Please note: We do not recommend these gears for heavy fishing conditions. These gears will work just fine for just about any fish you can catch with this size of reel, but we have found that for durability, one should choose a lower ratio. If you are fishing for species under 5 pounds, these are the gears for you!
You will get a faster retrieve speed, slower handle speed. Try it, you'll like it!
**These gears will fit ABU's UP TO but not including foot #'s starting with 15 00)**
**Will NOT fit UC series reels like the UC4600C, UC4601C, UC5600C, UC5601C, UC6500C, UC6501C**
