Casting ABU Ambassadeur Reels
Casting is the Issue to Master
Here is some advice from the early 50's when the Ambassadeur was first created, followed by advice from 20 years later.
I strongly suggest that the 4 books listed in my links page by Len Borgstom, Simon Shimomura and Daniel Skupien are absolutely essential to the study and appreciation of these fine reels. They are very definitely the Universe when it comes to matters ABU. Unlike a Penthouse which we all know are mainly bought for the literary articles, buy these (don't loan from a library or photocopy a friends) as coffee table books at least! I have even found my wife having a sneek peek and even commenting on the beautiful reels.
