Swedish Fishing Reels - Abu, Record and Ambassadeur Fishing Reels Site
06 Jan 2019
Abu Ambassadeur 3500 CDL. Mint set which attracted 87 bids, selling for $515. This set was limited to 500 reels, and they were sold as part of the GOLDEN COLLECTION in the early 90s. Probably the most EXPENSIVE ABU COLLECTION EVER.. In total there were 9 reels (1500, 2500, 3500, 4600, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000 C Deluxe, 10000C Deluxe and a ) and of course the beautful Wooden Glass Case, which they were housed in. The entire set (9 reels and cabinet) were initally put out to auction with a starting bid of 58,000 Swedish Crowns or $6,484 USD, but was not sold. So sadly, like many others who owned these sets, they were sold off indivdually one by one. Even the empty wooden-glass cabinet was sold seperate.
I have just found another COMPLETE set on the internet (Brand New) and its all yours for the small amount of $75,000 SWEDISH CROWNS or $8,386 USD. Anyone gotta spare $8000 USD lying around... give me a call ;)

Part of the Golden Collection. Unfortuneatly most collectors cant afford to pay around 6-8 thousand USD, to buy the entire set of 9 reels, which also include a beauiful wooden glass display cabinet. So unfortuneatly, these sets are split up as the seller sells them one by one,
This was the Abu Ambassadeur 8000 CDL - 2 Speed which attracted 106 bids and sold for $525
