Rated 5 out of 5 by TxTurkeyHunter from The Abu Garcia ProMax 3 Baitcaster Reel I purchased this reel a week ago and I'm extremely happy with my purchase. The ProMax 3 is one "smooth operator." Casting is a breeze. Retrieval is even smoother. Went out with it mounted to an Abu Garcia 7 foot, Medium/Heavy Vendetta Baitcasting Rod. With 40 lb. Braided Line, I lost not one of the eight Largemouth Bass that I caught today in under two hours. I love this reel so much that I ordered another one. Thanks Abu Garcia!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeG from Amazing! I have fished Abu Garcia for 45 years. As a testimate to their quality, I am just now replacing my 5500C with the Pro Max. This reel is amazing!! Light, smooth, fast and casts a mile if you need it to. My first trip out with the Pro Max I flipped, pitched and casted many different types of lures and it performed flawlessly. Paired with a light weight graphite rod, I fished for five hours and never tired. I gave the quality rating four stars only because the reel is new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimBell from Great cast ability I purchased the pro max last year. The few things that caught my eye was the look, the large handle, 8 bearings and the price!!! I read a few mixed reviews on it. but I wanted to try it for myself. I put it on a 7'2" medium heavy rod. I loved it from the first cast. The braking system worked fantastic with a few little adjustments I was able to cast into the wind without any backlashes. From the first fish the large handle and smooth drag made me a believer. Dollar to dollar this is one of the best reels I've ever purchased. I give it a big thumbs up and 5 stars...thanks Abu Garcia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robersonmedic from Amazing reel for the price!!!! I had tried several budget baitcaster reels from other company's and could not learn to use them. Continuously frustrated with backlashes, I sold the ones I had and swore to never use them again. After being urged by a friend to just try a few casts with his upper end baitcaster, I decided to give it another try. Still looking for a budget baitcaster, I went with the Abu Garcia Pro Max. WOW!!!! I have to admit I will never leave the baitcaster again. These reels are amazingly smooth and easy to cast with light or heavy baits. I have since bought two more and couldn't be happier!!
