Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5★ by 55reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Absolutely amazing! I just bought this reel last weekend and it has completely blown me away. I've picked up reels priced up to $130 and they didn't feel as smooth as this one. Amazing quality for a fraction of the price. Great for veteran bait cast users or beginners. 04/29/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great reel I just purchased this reel, so have not got a chance to use it. However, the feel of it as I was stringing it was great. Light easy to use. 04/04/2013

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great reel! This is a great reel for starters or more expeirenced fishers. It has far smooth casting and 5 ball bearing system for very easy reeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 a must have i have the black max and the pro max if you dont have them you need them its the best love it and you will too 05/16/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by a must buy! I have owned this reel for about 4 years now and never once had an ounce of trouble out of it, light maintenance is all you really need to keep it functional. I have recommended it to multiple friends and family members. I bought it because the color scheme really caught my eye, then the price tag really helped. From the super smooth castablity to the large line capacity this is the best reel for the price. 05/28/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Trial and Error Looking through the lane of hundreds of reels, a choice is difficult. I tend to look for a more high speed gear ratio, 7.2-1 is a little too fast but the Black Max offered my usual ideal ratio. The color scheme caught my eye and i read the product box, 12lb test for some heavier mono line in lakes, 30lb braid when going for alligator gar or muskellunge. After some debate between 2-3 Abu Garcia reels, i made the black max my choice. Started to spool a brand new set of line onto the spool (haven't had new line in years) i did notice the line doesnt spool perfectly side by side even, and sometimes it even tugs on the innermost wraps of line and drags them towards the center, or overlaps them, As for if this was truly causing a problem, I couldn't say, the guide seems to move a little too fast for the spooling action. This is my first baitcaster and I know they are notoriously difficult to learn and get the hang of at first, even following instructions from various online sources (due to lack of a real user manual included with the reel. Only a parts list, no indication as to part name, part funtions, reel maintenance and use, nothing but part numbers and an explosion schematic. This was a little disappointing but i made due), i ended up wasting over 150yds of line to backlash. When i finally got that jumbled mess out of the way and got to low distance casts, i was AMAZED at how smooth my line flew. The vibrations you feel from hits are strong and you know when you're lure is hit. A 8" rock bass hit felt like a 15-20 pound weight dropped onto the end of my line, the fight went SMOOTHLY, the drag system was a little difficult to switch up during the fight, but this is my first star drag reel. By far one of the best looking and performing reels I've owned. Still learning the little quirks and tics of this particular reel, which is the reason for the 4/5 ratings for casting and ease of maintenance, i have done no maintenance other than a light touch of reel magic after testing it on the top most part of the spool. All in all i think this reel will serve me many many good years on the water and help bring in even more of a catch. 05/04/2012
