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 FloatinAway from smooth cast and quiet I got this for a back up while my others are in for repair. I wasn't expecting much more than line storage for $50. I was hooked on this reel instantly! I had it dialed in after 2 casts. What really got my attention was how quiet it was. Pulled in a couple nice Coho ( one 8, and one 10 pounds) without a problem. Drag is better than expected, and casts as smooth as higher end reels. NICE JOB!

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 4 out of 5 by Big Rob from Its worthy...,,, If you're looking for a reel but not trying to break the bank this is the one. This thing is amazing. It's light weight, 18lbs of drag, low profile for great grip, its even has a powered coated black look to it, 5 bearing and smooth as butter. I know for a fact that if i bought a shimano reel with the same specs, it would cost double or triple the cost. All i have to say ABU GARCIA FOR LIFE......

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishinfreak from Nice reel can't beat Abu I've had this reel about 2 months now and am very impressed with the performance at this price point. Easy to adjust once you get the correct line on it! 15lb Cajun was a pain but once respooled with 12lb stren cast like a dream with almost 0 backlash once adjusted. Handles braid like a dream I've now spooled up with tuff line super cast and love it. Bought another one and have it spooled up with 30lb fire line tracer and when testing in the backyard accidentally cast this all the way across my 1/4 yard and halfway into the neighbors with a small 1/4 oz casting plug. Wow!! Very comfortable to hold all day and cast effortlessly. Can't believe how inexpensive this reel is!! I own 3 6501 c3s and an old 5500 can't beat Abu quality. The 5500 is older than me and still works great.
