This Silver Max was my first Max series reel and my 2nd reel with magnetic breaks.
I was a bit skeptical with buying it at first. My first magnetic break BC was a nightmare. After buying and testing this out, Abu did their homework on it.
Alot of times spending less than 100 dollars on a bait cast reel is a no no. Less expensive reels tend to buzz when casting and it drives me nuts. I was surprised when I first took this to the water. Very smooth when casting. I am using 50# braid and am very impressed.
I am still trying to master the flipping switch. 99% is me and not practicing enough. The concept is cool though and I'm glad its an option for the reel.
The bent handle and bent star is a big plus. Feels nice and comfortable with your hand closer to the reel. Plus it really gives the reel a clean look.
I have this paired with a 7' MH lighting Shock rod from Berkley and its balanced very well. This is my flipping set up and heavy jig set up.
Only reason I am giving this a 4 star and not a 5 star is due to the spool tention knob. Its very touchy and for a beginner I see some problems. To set it correctly where the lure falls slowly, it has to be very tight compared to other bait cast reels I own.
This will make a great 1st or 20th reel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vtoutdoors123 This thing is really bad
My friend gave one to me and this thing is the non smoothest, bad casting reel, worst backlashing reel ever. Worst reel I've ever had. Very noisy when casting, my dad says that it sounds like an airplane. Also very noisy when reeling in. You can feel the gears skipping. Defiantly not worth $60. I like a lot of abu's stuff but this is not one of them. Abu you missed the target in this one. If your looking for a good 60 dollar get the bass pro nitro z tournament or the browning Midas. Please don't waste your money

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyler01 Great Product!!!
I bought this reel at my local Bass Pro Shops yesterday. This is my first baitcasting reel. I own an Abu Garcia Orra S which is spinning. I love the Orra so I decided to stick with Abu Garcia. Smart Choice. The reel casts smoothly, retrieves great. No problems so far except, the fact that I experience backlash due to the fact that I'm a beginner with baitcasting. Overall, a great product. (So far).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jacob044 Good reel for the money BUT
I have had this reel for only 1 year and last week I had to strip it down as the inner workings of the clutch release gave out. Fortunately I understood how the mechanism works but the average angler would have to throw it away.
