  • 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.

My grandson wanted to learn how to fish and that fell into my hobby interest (fishing). He had never fished before; so I had ton of lures and bait, but I needed to get him a rod and reel to meet his needs and very easy to use. You had it, and now my grandson cannot wait till school is out so we can go fishing together. See, your rod and reel brought us (my grandson and me) together with a common interest. Of course we are just fishing for bluegill now, but once he has learn the basics we will expand into cats and bass fishing. Thanks for bringing us closer together. Sorry no photos of Ray's first fish, but grandpa did not think ahead and did not bring my camera. But we got our memory of the event and that is what counts.

Seven years ago I bought this reel to teach my wife how to cast. She started catching small bass on it within minutes. The next week she caught a couple five pounders which tested the easily adjustable drag. The reel is durable and smooth casting. I use it now crappie fishing.

I normally only use Garcia Bait casters (I have about 10 of them) but when fishing at night or in very low light conditions a spincast reel such as the Abumatic 276i is perfect. Some spincast reels sound like a coffee grinder on retrieve and have terrible drags. The Abumatic is Smooth and the drag is never binding but always constant. This reel also casts a country mile. I have several Garcia rods but I use a LR16 lighting rod with this reel.I used to fish Bass tournaments years ago and only used Berkley and Garcia products. I no longer fish tournaments but not an expert anymore I am still a very avid angler.
