Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great spincast reel Let me preface this by saying I sympathize with those who have had a bad casting performance, I found that 8lb mono filled 3/4 way to full was the key for me. I am a die hard & my usual choice of reel is the revo 3 stx (I own 3) & I bought it for my daughter to use because of the 19" line per turn- allows her to fish similar baits & styles that she is familiar with from watching me. Both she & I love the reel- casting is good & retrieve is fairly smooth. Only complaint is the ergonomics. She also has a zebco omega which costs twice as much and I might as well sell it on ebay, it sits in my boat looking cool. Overall im happy with it & would buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooooooth I normally only use Garcia Bait casters (I have about 10 of them) but when fishing at night or in very low light conditions a spincast reel such as the Abumatic 276i is perfect. Some spincast reels sound like a coffee grinder on retrieve and have terrible drags. The Abumatic is Smooth and the drag is never binding but always constant. This reel also casts a country mile. I have several Garcia rods but I use a LR16 lighting rod with this reel.I used to fish Bass tournaments years ago and only used Berkley and Garcia products. I no longer fish tournaments but not an expert anymore I am still a very avid angler.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great casting reel. but I have just recently caugh Great casting reel but as far as reeling in small rainbow and tiger trout I just caught recently the reel struggled mightily I have only owned Abu Garcia reels as a young chap and can say in all fairness that those reels were awesome I guess you get what you pay for I would recommend that Abu Garcia put an extra gear in this reel or something to upgrade this particular reel I will be purchasing the red pneumatic reel because the reviews have been super great and I know with this reel I will have according to respondents a tough durable reel which will with ease reek in small trout and large trout.?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works better than AG's more expensive reels I was very impressed with this reel. The tension iss very easy to adjust and fits well in my hand. The spool release button felt a little cheap after a while, almost as if it was broken after the first 15 casts, but it kept working. Occasionally, I would get backlash but this was rare and usually fixed by a long cast and pinching the line as I reeled it in to make sure it spooled tightly. Also, this reel was loud, like the line inside was constantly scraping the metal parts inside. A simple reel that simply worked. More than I can say about the other to expensive AG reels I also bought.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly designed. Bought this reel last season. From the first cast I've had issues with the release button. After the retailer wouldnt replace it because I only had my cc statement and not a store receipt, i decided to look inside. The arms that the button uses to pivot on when pressed is too short and often slide out of the sockets causing the button to push too far ahead stopping our cast short. Its random But does it at least 3/4 of the time. After 20 yrs of using these reels, this one has finally jaded me. I dont know what else to do with it..., too light for an anchor! Too expensive to throw out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good reel, but slightly akward. I dont know about other people, but the crank gets in the way of my hand when I try to cast sometimes. It is smooth (for a while). It cast well and it cranks well. the 2 ball bearings are nice, and it feels solid in my hands (even if a little akward).I have been through 4 of these reels. my local tackle shop sells them with a 6 month warranty. I am on my 5th one, and all I really use it for is light bass and pan fish. replacing the line that comes with it does help some. Overall this is a good reel, but I really dont think its built to last like many of the abu garcia products I own.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DEFINITE THUMB RELEASE DEFECT 2-IN-A-ROW! Ok, so I purchased this and I loved it on the 1st trip – casted beautifully for the initial 4 hours (maybe 80 casts?) then the thumb release broke. Being that it was less than one-day old, I returned it, got another brand new one and on the second trip, it too broke within a couple of hours at the thumb release! The housing and gears seem to be all plastic. It does not seem to be well made at all. Also, as a previous user stated, I know that this is a “value” reel, but wow, the kiddie combo I got my 11 yr son has totally out lasted this unit – and my son casts every other minute.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not even worth the money I bought Abumatic before I deployed, used it a few times. It had some casting problems so I thought it was my line. I replaced the line after I returned. I have tried many times to do something, I even tried unscrewing the cap and keeping it lose while casting. I recently tried respolling it again with braided. line. I can honestly say I am fed up with trying to mess with it. I was injured while in afghanistan by a blast and fishing is the only thing that keeps me calm. UNLESS I am trying to use an Abu Garcia 276i reel. DO NOT BUY THIS REEL.
