Hi, my name is Andrew Wheeler. I’m the product Manager for Abu Garcia. I’d like to speak to you today about the Black Max reels. These reels feature a four plus one bearing system which will give you a silky smooth operation. You can see that it is a much more compact design in the new Black max making it much more comfortable to fish all day.

Also features a bent handle and star design on this reel that allows you to get your hand closer to the reel making it much more ergonomic to fish. It also features the MagTrax brake system which is a magnetic external braking system which gives you much more control on your cast. Easy to adjust – as you adjust it your brake box goes in and out and give you more control on your cast.

We also feature the Dura gear system on this reel that gives you a silky smooth operation. This reel comes in a 6.4 to one gear ration. This gear also features a power disk drag system which allows you to have high drag pressure with a smooth consistent drag performance throughout the entire drag range. Check out the new Black Max Reel from Abu Garcia.
