Product Reviews

Abu Garcia® Abumatic® 170 Spincast is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and Reliable. I bought an Abumatic 170 Spincast for my father in law, for fathers day. I have for a long time fished with a Abu Baitcast and wanted to get my father in law something nice to fish with. Since he was not comfortable fishing a Baitcast I thought I would try out the Abumatic 170 Spincast. He loves it and so do I, if he's not around I find my self picking it up and fishing it almost as often as my Abu Baitcasters. It made a great gift, just wish someone would buy me one now. I personally find Spincasters to typically be unreliable, but not the Abumatic 170 and thats why I think I fish it so often because I know its going to work when I pick it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have owned and used an Abumatic 70 since 1965 given wonderful service until I tore it down for a detailed cleaning upon reassembly I broke the antireverse. Bought a new 170 model in 1977 still use it in salt water or freshwater always works perfectly with just a little cleaning afterwards to keep it in top notch condition.Seldom use any other reel anymore, love them.bought a abumatic 270 for my wife at same time and have had no issues with it either.Do'nt know about new plastic model's seem cheap and delicate to me, will they stand up to large fish in my humble opinion not as well as the old models! Will use my 170 till I pass it on to one of my son's. Classic 170 is best fishing reel on market IMHO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made reel I bought this awhile back. And up till then, i was a zebco man when it came to spin cast reels. The smooth casting can only be compared to riding in a Cadillac. The drag is easy to set and when there is a fish on THE DRAG DOES ITS JOB!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. I bought this Fathers Day weekend for My Wife. When it arrived I changed the string and mounted it on a Rod. She went out and started casting and the Reel locked up. It was discovered that a pin feel out to retrieve the string. Sent the Reel back. Still waiting to Hear from them. Never got to use it. SAD............

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tese reels are the standard of the industry. These reels are like the small block Chevy automotive engine. They have been making them for years with continual improvements and are nearly bullet proof. Not the cheapest on the market but probably the lowest total cost of ownership.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My brother gave me this for my bday. I love it. Ive caught some really nice fish with it. Ive hoomed fish that have stripped out every reel i own. But with this one i have no problems. I rate it a 10 +. Would get rid of it for nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullet proof!!!! I bought the Abumatic 170 spincast reel for my 6 year old son. he destroyed 3other spincast reels from other brands. I ave been fishing Abu Garcia reels for a very long time starting with the 4000 D, 5000, 6000C 1500,2500. Some of these reels are around 40+ years old and I still use them. I fish several days a week, in my boat and from shore at times (freshwater, Bass). So I knew the reel would hold up to his rough use. He is always telling everyone LOOK AT HOW FAR I CAST. He has caught numerous fish with the reel. Bass & Catfish! He loves it. When we arrive at a spot as I put down the trolling motor I will ask which rod&reel do you want and he always says I WANT MY RED REEL! I love the reel because it is tough and is dependable, I also have stopped buying reel to replace the ones he breaks.
