I’ve used them from ice-out until Winter was setting in again, in water temperatures from the low 40 degree range up into the high 80s. And the same can be said for air temps. I’ve gotten a really good feel for these reels, and the rods. I learned about their good traits and their not so good traits. Although the not-so-good is pretty minimal when compared to the good. So let’s get started with the meat and potatoes of the write-up and review

I bought this real a few months ago and it’s amazing. This is by far not a cheaply made reel and casts so smoothly. Abu Garcia brand was my first bait-cast reel and I was worried about bird nesting. However if you have setup correct, it is almost impossible to bird nest it. I can pitch this setup better than any of my spinning reels. I would recommend this reel to anyone, new anglers or pros. It is hard to beat the quality of the Black Max.  Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcast Reel - Right Hand

It's a good reel for being on the cheap side. Pretty smooth while reeling moderate casting. All plastic gears so it doesn't last as long as a more expensive reel. I would recommend this to a beginner.

Good beginner bait casting reel for the price point. You can also find this in a combo and get a rod as well for a little extra cost. Would recommend for anyone trying to get into using a bait casting reel and doesn’t want to spent a ton of money. Abu Garcia makes a great product. I own many of there reels and they get used hard and they continue to preform after many years.

I have had this reel for about 3 years and it still works perfect everything seems pretty lubricated for the age it’s in and as many times as I’ve left it outside. I love the drag knob it feels really blocky and smooth. It’s 100% my favorite reel overall

Pretty good starter reel for all beginners. I recommend it for anyone who is trying to get into the sport of fishing. My boyfriend has this reel and it has worked out pretty good for him.

My dad and I are guides in the southeastern part of the United States. We ONLY use ABU Garcia equipment. We've found that this reel is an excellent reel for the beginner wanting to get into fishing. It's light weight, low profile, sleek design fits perfectly in your hand. At the same time, this product also hosts a rugged gear system that gives you the power to land trophy fish. Not to mention, you can't beet the price!
