Rated 5 out of 5 by Wyldechylde77 from Great baitcaster here! Purchased the Silver Max combo at Gander Mountain for the upcoming season. Wanted a decent baitcaster as an upgrade to my Shimano that I was learning on. Bought some practice plugs, and started practicing with this combo. Wow!! GREAT casting, smooth as butter. Finally was able to take it out and giv e it some heavy duty action night fishing for walleye, and had NO problems at all! Of course, a birds nest or two happened, but no big deal because that is mostly user error and all in the adjustments. Adjusted accordingly and she's a casting machine! Caught a few nice walleye too with no problems! Great buy for the buck!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bassmaster21 from Great to start out with First of all, I am pretty new to bass fishing. A few months ago i decided to get a cheap baitcasting combo, and it was a terrible mistake. I thought it was me messing up, and decided to stick with spinning reels. This Christmas, however, I asked for a Silver Max Combo. In the short time I've had it, I have realized that a good reel can make the difference. It is very smooth, the rod is nice (I got the 6'6" model) and is an overall amazing deal. If you are new to baitcasters, or even a pro with them, try out the Abu Garcia Silver Max. I can see myself using it for many years to come in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Combo The Silver Max was my first baitcaster. I have to say that I enjoy it. It's a nice set up with solid functionality. I still throw my swimjigs and smaller swimbaits on this set up. It has great durability. What I really love is the price. I have not found a better combo for this cheap! I have several more higher priced rods and reels, but I still take this one with every time I go fishing. I strongly recommend this rod for people who are switching from spinning gear alone to baitcasters. I would like a bit more sensitivity in the rod, but you can't ask for more features with this price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robert from Great Reel.. Not so great rod I have no problem with the reel, it's the rod that is lacking strength. After the fourth or fifth cast using a Strike King spinner bait, the tip of the rod when attempting to make a cast. I triply hope it was just a flaw in that particular rod cause I am fishing in a tournament next month and most definitely need all of my equipment in working order. Thank goodness I was still in return policy timeframe cause I would really be upset to say the least. After the tournament, I will give a better tauting if all goes well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dmix35t from First Baitcaster in 15 years...Great Purchase! I've stayed away from baitcasters for the past 15 years, due to a bad experience and I've used spinning reels ever since. I figured it was about time that I gave baitcasters another shot. I did my research to make sure I was getting the best combo for my money. I went back and forth between two different combo sets and finally decided on the Silver Max combo. The gear ratio, balance, and smoothness won me over. I plan on adding more Abu Garcia products to my fishing arsenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBassMaster3 from Great Reel Ok, so this is my first bait casting reel, and I love it. I bought this combo in late February and it has worked like a charm. The magnetic brakes are very easy to adjust, and it was a great choice for me, just starting out. The only reason I gave it a four out of five stars in casting performance is because it is hard to get good, consistent casts without turning the brakes down. Overall, this rod and reel combo is great for people just starting on a bait caster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by froghound from very nice combo but no left hand reel combos? I like this combo it's a good entry level setup gears are smooth, casts nice. I would not have bought this if it wasn't on sale it had a bent handle the drag star would not turn so I fixed that works fine now. I love Abu Garcia never been unhappy with a product. I just wonder why there are not any left hand reel casting combos. This makes getting into a left hand casting setup twice the cost. I would buy 5 or 6 of these combos if they had left hand reels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BaitcastingBassMan from Switching to Baitcaster I have been diehard into spincast,and fished many times on spincast rods, but last summer and fall, I started to shop baitcasters and the Silvermax Combo really caught my eye. I waited for months until this spring when I picked it up. Now, I don't want to fish with anything else. I am an Abu guy, I prefer Abu products to most others. Those with negative reviews are not really seeing this product to it's fullest potential.
