Product Reviews

Abumatic 170 Spincast is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 115.
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 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 All age friendly I bought this beautiful reel for my kid and man I love it just as much as he does great reel for all ages. Abu Garcia has the best product ever. Love all Abu Garcia reels. Here's a couple other purchases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality in a small package I bought this reel for a short rid I use to cast under a low bridge. I hooked into a 5.8lb Large Mouth and was surprised when the reel had the strength to pull er in..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Less maintenance Bought this for the wife since she can't operate a spinning or bait casting reel. Other brands (brand Z) would spin the line in the reel and I'd have to change the line in her reel quite often. With the Abu Garcia I don't have to take out time from fishing to fix her rod all the time. On another note I have several Abu Garcia rods and reels and they are definitely my most fished and favorite. I rarely use anything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the new upgrades. The ultra-smooth, ultra-strong Carbon Matrix drag system, brass gearing. An aluminum diecast front cone and machined body. An oscillating far-cast spool that eliminates line twist on both the cast and the retrieve. The 4-bearing system with 3 ball bearings + 1 instant anti-reverse roller bearing. Smooth, powerful, quiet, durable. I can't wait to rake it out again.
