Bought an ambassadeur 522 XLT at a pawn shop in Wichita Falls TX. about 8 yrs ago, never used the reel and I'm figuring it was meant for bass fishing--but I'm wanting to give a happier life and make it a cat reel. Does anyone know anything about these reels or have used them it does say it will hold quite a bit of 20 lb. test line, needs a little work, didn't know if it would be worth the money to get it in top working order. Also I heard that some of the ambassadeur XLT'S have a life time warranty on them and that all you have to do is send them and they will fix them free of charge, any knowledge on this?
