Rated 5 out of 5 by Digger Doug from Really like this reel Found the Black Max reels in our stores. Really glad to see them in a left handed version without special ordering it. I've had it for about two weeks now, and do fast I'm loving it! The designe, and features make it easy and comfortable to use. Once adjusted, it casts so nice and smooth. I can cast lures as far as a spinning reel using braided line. And love the 6.4:1 gear ratio for quick retrieval of spinner baits and buzz baits. More prolonged use and time will tell, but for the money, they're probably the best deal on the market. A few friends have taken notice of it, and are probably going to be getting some also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by btezra from Best "first time baitcaster" available! When I started bass fishing about 6 years ago my good friend went shopping with me for a baitcaster. He recommended the Black Max saying it was the best baitcaster he'd used when learning how to use a baitcaster. I took his advice and bought two Black Max's and could not have been more thrilled with my purchases. GREAT product at a FANTASTIC price point. I still use my Black Max reels as backups in tournaments and when I casually bass fish. They are solid, reliable, built to last and provide results time and time again. I now recommend the Black Max to anglers just starting to bass fish and have a desire to learn how to throw a baitcaster as part of their reel lineup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steiner from Very easy to cast and a joy to use I bought this real a few weeks ago and it’s amazing. This is by far not a cheap reel and it works smooth. This is my first bait-cast reel and I was worried about bird nesting. But I setup the drag and magnet dial and started to use it. I have very little bird nesting with it. I can pitch this setup way better than my spinning reel. After I used this I went back to my spinning reel to pitch into a can I had set out and missed it by a mile. I tried to stop the spinning reel with my thumb but of course that did not work. I would recommend this reel to anyone looking to get into bait-casting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Drnanners from Good performance for a great price. This was my first bait cast reel. It's a great reel to learn on. Although higher end reels tend to birds nest less, this reel allowed me to learn the fundamentals of bait cast fishing. I used braided and mono with no issues, and the spool holds more than enough line for bass fishing. My buddy used his for saltwater fishing for a couple seasons with no issues. For the price you can't really go wrong. It's a great learning experience. When I was ready to upgrade I sold it at just under retail price on ebay. Abu garcias hold their value well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaVeY5k from Smooth like butter & easy to use :) I purchased my BMAX on a rod & combo at a Cabelas in Arizona. Upon purchasing this item, I was still fairly new to using a baitcast setup. I have never had a bird spool while using this reel! Absolutely amazing reel, easy to use/set braking system. If you are looking to pick up a solid reel for getting into a baitcast setup, or if you are looking to get a solid reel for most bang for your buck, I can't think of an alternative choice for quality at this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyD from Awesome little reel! I picked one of these reels up this morning at the local Walley World. After catching half a dozen 12 inch bass from my pond , I started to doubt the drag system if I hooked a nice fish. 10 minutes later, Bam, this girl hit. At over 12 pounds, I can safely say the drag works fine.
