Abu Garcia Elite Max Spinning Reel is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RVA Bassin from Great Value Recently purchased the size 10 for Panfishing this Winter. Had the pleasure of using it for the first time today and the reel performed flawlessly. Spooled with 4# Nanofil, caught 9 Sunfish in a couple of hours. It's been quite awhile since I fished like a kid (worm and bobber), had a blast today having a fishing contest with my 8 year old son using UL gear. Plan on using this for fishing weightless Wacky rig as well as Neko rig. Will be a blast to latch onto a 2# LMB with this gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan1983 from Shoreline casting is amazing gets you in the depth I bought this reel in August 2019 it is highly reliable it can be a little testy. It has amazing long cast ability on the right rod. Smooth reel in good amounts per turn on the reel coming in. It allows your technique more finesse catching the eye of white, stripped, and large mouth bass. I have hit good sized yellow perch walleyes sauger on this reel never losing a fish fight. It worked great in summer and fall just used it on November 10th and the 25th both times fishing in snow storm hit a 6 lb bass no issue. Alittle tip it your reel gets to cold it with have a sticking issue warm it up in your jacket it will be fine

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zonkers from smooth drag great casting I've been using the size 20 Elite max spinning for a few months now. Love the smooth drag on larger fish. The reel it's self is very smooth on the crank and flows great during the cast.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Prob34 from Pretty disappointed I was really looking forward to my first new spinning reel purchase in a quite a few years. The reel is quite smooth on the retrieve but I am very disappointed in the jerky wobbly casting. Great looking reel, and have had nothing but great experiences with Abu equipment in the past, so this is not what I was expecting. I am sad to say I will be returning this after giving it a good three or four attempts trying to convince myself it was fine. The hunt for a new spinning reel unfortunately continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from High Quality Reel I just purchased this reel and it is the best quality spinning reel I have ever owned. I paired it with an Abu Garcia Veritas Medium-Lite 7 foot rod and it casts light tackle half a mile. I've been using straight Stren Fluorocast (no braid) and it handles the line quite well. Just flip the spool over when it starts to twist and leave 1/8 inch open on the spool. This reel has a very smooth retrieve and drag, the parts are aircraft-quality, and it is well-built. Try a Berkley General in Green Pumpkin on a 1/8 ounce shakey head with this reel and you will catch a lot of bass. I have caught some nice Crappie on this reel also using jigs with 1/16 ounce heads. The size 20 Elite Max is perfect for both applications with 8 lb test. Just switch lures when you hit the Crappie hole and go from Largemouths to Slabs!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gone fishing 55 from Elite Max I bought this a month ago and haven’t had time to try it out I really did wish the rod was a one piece but it’s a nice set up can’t wait to try it out on Lake Hartwell in February
