Abu Garcia® Abumatic™ 276i Spincast Reel
I had to have one...
So I collect a lot of fishing gear. I never fished with a closed face spincaster as a kid--never owned one until I was 36 and I bought it only because I had an "extra" casting rod and wanted to "round out" my collection of gear by adding this to it.
Iyt is beautiful and solid as a rock. The left-right switch is handy as I am solely a left-hand retrieve kind of guy and it's nearly impossible to find one in a spincast reel. I'm glad Abu Garcia came to the rescue with this reel.
It performs flawlessly and makes fishing fairly "lazy". Have you ever wanted to just lay into one of your baits and see how far you could throw it? Did you have to cut off the ratsnest afterwards? This reel eliminates all of that--it's like magic! Just push the button, put your shoulder into it, and release the button at about 10 o'clock. I've cast 3/8 oz spinnerbaits over 120 feet with this reel.

I'd NEVER EVER EVER think this would happen with an Abu product, but i was fishing on a lake in VA which know for HUGE BASS(nottoway lake, aka:lee lake), and the reel literally came apart on my hands...i'd think to tighten everything up to make sure nothing bad happened, but i did that before i started fishing. idk what happened to it becuz the whole handle just plopped right in the water in front of me. BIG disappointment :[[[
