    It is a great casting reel and reels in nicely.......unless you catch a fish!! The drag does not set correctly, I almost lost a small bluegill due to the drag letting the fish pull itself under some bushes. Maybe I just got a bad reel?

    I purchased one of these fine reels a few months ago. One of my first spincast reels ever. (grew up a dock rat and young dock rats were always given old broken cheap spincasts to use, so I developed a bad attitude towards them until recently) I have a 1950s Shakespeare Wondercast in perfect shape which worked well for bank fishing. Fished for 50 years using spinning tackle, which can be finicky. I replaced the line on the fine reel with Spiderwire EZ Mono 8lb, and in doing so found the reel did have a problem as described in a couple of posts. The problem was me not putting the line on correctly, or not enough which was the problem. This was causing the short cast problem. Too much line can be bad too. In any reel, and reel type. One must find the perfect line fill for each reel. My advice and experience taught me to double check any rod or reel before using. I have expensive rigs which a screw, or spring sometimes needs adjusting. In short I know of no reel, or tackle for this matter which works 100 percent of the time 100 percent. Great reel!

    The 276i is by far the best beginner reel I have ever seen

    The 276i is by far the best beginner reel I have ever seen. I bought one for my little cousin and he was doing so good with it I had to try it out myself. Amazing little reel, smooth as silk, no slipping and really good casing ability for a spincaster. We landed decent sized slabs on this with no problems whatsoever. A different brand of reel I bought him a couple years ago lasted about a year before it started slipping and is now rough on retrieval. Maintenance doesn't even help it.

    My 5yr old graduated to this reel and she couldn't be more happy. She can cast farther and has more fun fishing now. More fish are landed. It is a great performing reel and we have had no problems with it. Highly recommended.

    I had gone fishing with my kids many times with the zebco 33. Had so many problems always having to stop and fix endless problems. I purchased this based on the price and my good experience with the AG spin reels. Took the kids out this weekend and didn't have one problem all day! Very easy to use. Thank you for a Great product.

    • A. Your question did not state the model number of the Abumatic that you want to move the handle on. With all models except the Abumatic 170i the owner’s manual that is packaged with the reel should explain this. There is a screw head under a cover that is exactly opposite the crank handle. Simple unscrew to remove the cover with a coin and then remove the screw. The screw will probably require a phillips screwdriver. Pull out the handle and shaft and stick it in on the opposite side and replace the screw and the screw cover. On some models there might be a spacer that must also be switched for proper fit. Do not over tighten!!! Be careful not to cross thread the screw or cover!!! With the 170i model (the Red Abu reel) it is not possible to switch sides of the reel with the handle. This model is a right hand model only since it has a different type of drag setup for salt water use. It is important to be certain that the reel is properly lubricated before its first use. If you are not handy with such things you might consider having it done professionally. You could have the handle reversed when the maintenance is done if it is not the 170i. I own 5 of the Abumatic reels. The Abumatic is a well made reel and with proper maintenance it can last a lifetime. If you are not a professional tournament fisherman this maintenance probably only needs to be done about once every 5 or so years after the initial maintenance has been done. That is assuming that it is not dropped into the water, mud or sand. Then maintenance should be performed as quickly as is practical. The basic rule of reel lubrication is to use oil and grease that also contains silicone. Grease should be placed on all gears and oil should be put on all bearings and moving parts. I use the Abu Garcia grease and oil on all brands of reels. All reels are supposed to have been properly lubricated when they are assembled at the factory. They are not always. I own in excess of 25 reels of various types and only 2 of them were properly lubricated when they was assembled. The reel must be at least partly disassembled to clean and lubricate. Do not do this yourself if you do not have the right tools and knowledge to do this. To drop even one tiny screw or spring that you cannot find will leave your reel useless.
