 >  > Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcasting Reels

Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcasting Reels bring back visions of hefty limits of largemouth bass and walleye. When a day of fishing meant pre-dawn cross lake excursions, weary arms and sunburn necks, topwater heart stopping excitement, and the powerful Texas rig hook set, the Max series of low profile baitcasters merit the names so linked with the best that fishing has to offer. No corners are cut on these reels. Swedish engineering, MagTrax brakes, Duragear brass gears, 6.4:1 high speed retrieve, cam lock, instant anti-reverse and the Abu Garcia name that anglers around the world trust to meet their fishing needs.

Black Max Baitcasting Reels combine a tough, double anodized aluminum spool with a durable graphite frame and crank side cover to produce an amazingly light-weight yet strong reel.

Features of Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcasting Reels include:

  • Four stainless steel ball bearings and one roller bearing
  • Corrosion resistant instant anti-reverse bearing
  • Graphite one piece frame and sideplates
  • Machined double anodized aluminum spool
  • Power Disk drag system
  • Duragear brass gearing
  • MagTrax brake system
  • Recessed reel foot plus a compact bent handle

Black max

Neeses, South Carolina

About Me:

I have been using bait casters for a few years now, but the Black Max is the first Abu Garcia reel I have used. I got this rod and reel as a graduation gift from my brother, and it is the best reel I have ever used! It performs flawlessly with every cast. It has never backlashed on me even when I cast my lure fairly forcefully. I was impressed with this reel since the first cast. I highly recommend this rod and reel to anyone that loves to fish. From now on I only use Abu Garcia rods and reels, they are reliable, durable, and just a joy to fish with.

Pros: Smooth Reeling, accurate casting, Smooth Drag System, great all around rod and reel.

Cons: None!

Best Uses: Fishing in ponds and lakes for largemouth bass.

good piece of gear at right price

About Me:

It's worth the money you pay for it. About $47 to $55 is what they run. If you are a begginer at using a bait cast you may not want to learn on this one. Remember you are paying an average price for a piece of equipment. There are much better reels on the market with much higher price. As with anything learn how to use it before you go to the lake are you will be frustrated and will spend more time untangling the birdnest you created by your lack of skills.If your are a beggining angler, try learning on something like a Mitchel Avorist spincast. Dont waste good money on stuff like Zebcos 202 0r the like. They will not last and you will be buying another rod and reel soon. sometime you can catch this rod and reel combo on sale for [...]

Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Reliable, Easy Casting, Durable
