Abu Garcia Cardinal S FD Reel
Abu Garcia is world famous for its incredible range of high performance reels. One of the angling greats, Abu Garcia has been producing impeccable reels since the 1940s and the brand is characterised by its long running series that just keep improving with age. The first of these world class series is the Ambassadeur. The multiplier that has defined European sea fishing across the generations, the Ambassadeur series has never been out of production since the initial reel was produced. The second of those world defining series is the Cardinal, the family to which this reel belongs.
The Cardinal series is a family of top end spinning reels that offer durability and performance excellence and this Cardinal S FD more than lives up to this impressive heritage. Boasting a lightweight graphite body and rotor, this reel is hard wearing and rigid, ensuring you can tackle the hardest fighting fish in the water without causing any misalignment of the vital internal gearing system. This gearing allows you to tackle all the fish you desire using your best spinning tactics.
The Cardinal S FD has been fitted with three ball bearings, as well as another additional roller bearing. These bearings ensure that this reel performs incredibly smoothing and they work to reduce the friction experienced between the moving parts of the reel. As a result of this friction reduction they also help ensure the reels resistance to corrosion and other wear and tear factors that could shorten the reels life prematurely. Abu Garcia is famous for its incredibly durable tackle and, in fact, the company was awarded the prestigious title ‘Purveyor to the Royal Swedish Court’ for its continued manufacturing excellence. One such example of this durable manufacturing promise is the reel’s Everlast bail system. This is a strengthened bail arm system that can more than continued with the most repetitive use in the harshest of conditions.
Suitable for use with all line types, tanks in part to the slow oscillation system which ensures pristine line lay no matter what line you use, the Cardinal S FD is a versatile reel that can be used across the predator fishing discipline.
