SWEDISH ABU CARDINAL 54 & 354 & AMBASSADEUR 54 CARBONTEX UPGRADE KITS
Jim the owner of Jim's Reel Shop has been servicing fishing reels for over forty years. Jim has gained a lot of information and a wealth of experience of which he has shared in four published books. He has a couple more ready for publishing for when he retires. The best upgrade that can be made to the Swedish ABU Cardinal reels is changing the stock drag washers is to Carbontex drag washers. Carbontex drag washers originate from the USA.
Smoooooth Drag from the USA, manufacture Carbontex Carbon fibre drag washers. These premium quality drag washers are the perfect combination of unrivalled stopping power, silky smoothness and outstanding consistency, with a high heat tolerance. Carbontex drag washers are the best upgrade in drag washers, available, try them and you will not be disappointed. They enable a greater drag pressure to be applied to the line and can be used dry or with a very light coating of Cal's drag washer grease.
Jim's Reel Shop import the Carbontex drag washers and have assembled kits for the first time, for the original late nineteen seventies/early nineteen eighties Abu Cardinal 54, and 354 models, which are still a very popular reel with Barbel, Carp and Pike anglers in the UK
Jim's Reel Shop have packaged sets of three genuine Carbontex drag washers to replace the old, original plastic drag washers, which are not very good and let the reels down. If you are not mechanically minded we can service your reel and fit Carbontex drag washers for you!
