We have found a supplier to make these gear sets for us! This kit will change the gear ratio of your Ambassadeur 7500, 7500CT, BG7000HS, BG7000HSN High Speed series reel to 5.5:1 (stock was 5.3:1). This will give you a faster retrieve.
Add a Carbon Drag to your setup while you're changing the gears...you won't be sorry!
- Brass Main Gear, click omitted (no springs on reverse side to break off!). Replaces Abu 20871
- Brass Pinion Gear Replaces. Abu 1090993 or 21078
- White plastic pinion collar. Replaces Abu 21100
- Note: This kit is for 'older' style Ambassadeur 7500, 7500CT, BG7000HS, BG7000HSN High Speed series reels only and will not fit the newer 'i' series.
- These gears MUST be replaced as a matched set as the ratio is different than the stock Abu gears.
- Will not fit non-high speed reels (older 7000, 7000C, 7000C3) unless you have a matched high speed spool.

These gears made my High Speed 7500 a bit faster than it was. Nice because the originals are not available anymore.
It is not specified that a new spool is needed when converting from an older 7000c. Gears are not smooth under load.
Reply - Hi Richard. It does specify these will not work in a standard 7000 as the spool shaft diameter is too small. This will allow the pinion too much movement and create the 'geary' feel you are experiencing. Give us a call or reply to our email and we'll get you fixed up!
