A true value in Abu Garcia reels, the new more compact Black Max™ reel includes a smooth retrieve 4+1 bearing system with durability to stand up to the max limits of hard core fishing. The lightweight graphite frame and body tip the scales at a mere 7.9 ounces. Performance and toughness are hallmarks of the Max family. Additionally the compact bent handle and star provide a more ergonomic feel during retrieves. The Black Max is paired with a 24 Ton graphite rod for a lightweight balance design.
