    hey guys. I am looking for a christmas present for a friend. He uses old abu ambassador reels for his salmon fishing but these reels are getting old. So I thought I would check with you guys if anyone had anything laying around. The reel has to have a cast-control, linewinder preferrably (could do without) Reel will be used for baitcasting and trolling.

    Looking to spend sub 300 usd.

    If you have a calcutta or similar that might match what I am looking for please DM me.

    I have not found anything interesting yet. Anyone got a Tranx laying around? Should be perfect for the application

    Hafnor every time I see a post like yours I start to itch and twitch. I haven't been much of a conventional reel angler since I was a kid fishing for bass up north but for the last year or so I have been wanting to get into using some conventional gear. I guess I have the round reel itch!

    Hahah @Kim , I feel the same. I love spinners but there is something very "old school" by a top mounted reel...
