Black Max Combo
Black Max Combo
I replaced all of my Ambassador 5000's, 6000's and other reels with the Abu Garcia Black Max Combo. I have arthritis in my hands which made other reels and rods combo's hurt my hands after a few minutes use. Since I fish several times a week I have to have rods and reels that are not only comfortable to use but high quality workmanship. You cannot but another rod and reel combo that is as good as these no matter the price.

Superior Performance for the money
This combo takes the cake. Very smooth reel and the medium/heavy action rod is super sensible allowing to feel bumps, rocks and weeds, you get a $ 400 combo for a fraction of the price.

Hard to beat for the price
Great little combo for the price. I have both the Med. Heavy and the Medium combo. The medium heavy may be a little stiff for lighter baits as the medium is to light for heavy baits but match lure weight and line for each and they work well. I did manage to break about a three inch piece on the end of my med. heavy but after a call and an email to ABU I received a replacement rod for around $10.00. Excellent customer support and warranty.

Good while it lasted
I purchased this combo in July and put on some basic flurocarbon line on it. It worked great and I caught some nice fish. Recently I put on some new 30 lb braided line and the problem started. On my 11th cast with the new line and a new lure the line managed to shred itself down and snap sending my lure and line into the water.
