Abu Garcia® Pro Max Low Profile Combo is rated out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Duke from Absolutely worth it! After doing some thorough research/ new rod&reel combo shopping, I purchased the Pro Max combo! I've heard that when you buy a combo you'll get a good reel and cheap rod, or a good rod and cheap reel! This combo is NEITHER! The reel is super smooth, and if you're not careful, will backlash easily. As long as you use the spool adjustments for the type of casting you're doing, you can cast a mile or flip 30 yds! I will say that i might try this reel on an Abu medium action rod just to see the difference in casting lighter weighted baits, but this combo has met my every expectation and i will be purchasing the ORRA next! Thanks Abu!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CookeTX from Best combo on the market... this combo is golden. for $100 its really a steel. It casts for miles and feels great in hand. landed many bass with this rod, and the experience is amplified with the smoothness of operation. The reel is truly one that will last "For Life". Now the rod is adequate but not nearly as good as the reel. It works and has served me well, but when the time comes ill probably look for something with a little more sensitivity etc... Although i do enjoy the ergonomics of the rod and the hook keeper near the reel seat. You cannot go wrong with this combo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke on a cast The second day of use and the rod shatters on a cast and not a typical break (see attached photo). I was using a live target 1/2oz bluegill mated with 10lb line, which the rod is rated easily to handle. First cast on my second day I hear a slight pop and don't know where it came from (thought it was someone else around me). Reel in and cast again, this rod then shatters in my hand this isn't supposed to happen so I assume it's a rod defect in the graphite. I will change the rating on this rod depending on how Abu Garcia handles this warranty claim.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Traviemac from was an excellent combo for 8 months I've had this combo for about 8 months now and the reel has already stopped working. The drag system is malfunctioned, some reason it randomly doesn't work, barely enough drag to pull in a small sunfish, even if i turn the drag star very tightly the drag doesn't change. It sometimes also works, no idea why. Its really disappointing because this reel used to be really outstanding for is price. On the other hand the reel is extremely smooth, and can cast lighter lures compared to most bait casters in the same price point. It must be a defect because i know its a good brand and I really enjoyed this reel while it worked, just not reliable anymore. The rod is still great, really like it compared to the other brand I used to use

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't buy the combo I bought the combo unit because It seemed pretty decent for the price. The reel is actually pretty nice and is smooth and casts well. The problem I had was with the rod. The trigger section of the handle broke off on my first trip this year. Trust me im very careful with my stuff and you would think that you would have to hit it pretty hard to break it but that simply isn't the case. To make a long story short. 79.99 reel. 20.00 rod. Shipping to Abu Garcia 10.00 Return shipping 9.95. Rod now in trash. Looking for a new rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishin fanatic from cant go wrong i have fished this rod for close to a season now and i love it! Reel: i love this reel.This reel is very ergonomic with the bent star and handle. The very fast retrieve has help me pull fish out of heavy cover very fast. I prefer using braid on this rod over a mono because when fishing heavy cover my line would snap with mono. Rod: i have herd of guys breaking their rod and saying that it is no good but i LOVE it. it has a great feel, very nice grips and a nice stiff end. Overall: rods great reels great, whats not to love.
