The legendary Abumatic spincast reel that is completely engineered for superlines, and housed in an all water protected package. The 1276SLi utilizes Titanium Nitride coated parts everywhere that line would contact the reel including the front cone, pickup pin, rotor, and line guide. The special treatment provides the extra durability required when fishing with superlines.  An Ultra-Smooth Spool Drag system and 4 bearing Duragear™ Drive with instant anti-reverse bearing allow for smooth, trouble free retrieves. This reel is both Fresh and Saltwater ready, and comes pre-spooled with 14 lb. line.
Abu Garcia® Abumatic 1276SLi Spincast is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reels fail too quickly I thought I finally had the answer to spin cast reels with braid but that does not seem to be the case. I have three of these reels and two of them have already failed. I had to replace the thumb button on one. The other has had the gears stripped and the drag is stuck and cannot be adjusted. The reel handles on these also become very loose. The gold paint or seal on the reel cover on one has also completely peeled off. The Fire Line that comes with the reels is horrible. I replaced it with Spiderwire Stealth and that helped tremendously. If you do not fish for a day or so and the line dries out you have to get it wet before it will loosen up and allow you to cast efficiently. This reel is not heavy duty and if you get a 7 - 8 pound Pike on it the reel will struggle. Other than that I do like the design of the reel and it's ease of use when they actually work. I think Abu really needs to re-visit the quality of this product and make some major improvements.
