Upgraded styling and addition max drag highlights the new Abu Garcia Black Max Casting Reel - a low profile baitcaster reel often used for bass fishing applications. The Black Max baitcaster, from Abu Garcia, offers bass anglers an affordable casting reel which is suitable for several techniques. A true value from Abu Garcia reels, the low profile, compact Black Max includes a smooth retrieve 4+1 bearing system and 18lbs of max drag to handle the battle when the pressure is on.

The lightweight graphite frame and body tip the scales at a mere 7.3 ounces. Performance and toughness are hallmarks of the Max reel family. Additionally the compact bent handle and star provide a more ergonomic feel during retrieves. Due to the reel's ease of casting, durability and affordable price tag, we recommend this reel to any level of angler from the complete novice to the serious bass fisherman looking for a great value. If you're just learning to use a baitcaster this would be a great model to start with. Abu Garcia Reels are renowned for their limited backlashes and long lifespan.

We offer the Abu Garcia Black Max Casting Reel in both right and and left hand models. The Black Max Reels possess a 6.4:1 gear ratio. For more detailed information on each model, please consult the chart below.

    I have been into baitcasters for awhile now and this is my second one. This real is amazing. The drag system is perfect and the casting is amazing. I have a 12 pound fluorocarbon on it and it has no problem pulling some hog bass out of the brush. It's a recommended reel.
