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 4 out of 5 by JP052 Decent reel for the money
I bought the Silver Maxx combo as my first baitcaster. Works well, doesn't backlash if you adjust the tension knob to the individual lure, so that the lure will fall slowly. This is the case with any baitcaster, whether it's $20, or $500. Also, drag is smooth and strong, caught some nice bass with it. Casts good distance, and is very accurate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brandon15180 Great starting reel
To my opinion this is an all around good reel for the money! Really impressed in the max drag and also the recovery:) it has a nice accessory to it, it has a flipping switch wich might make it easyer to be pitching. It does have its ups and downs because of off you don't set the reel to each lure you might get a lot of backlashes
All in all it's great to start and learn with this reel because of how you can use it.

Pros: Price! High drag setting! A child can operate it once it's set. This reel was difficult to get dialed in perfect but once it's dialed in, it casts almost as good as any expensive reel. This reel has two brakes, spool tension and a magnetic brake.
Cons: Not reading the instructions/manual shall cause a backlash/overrun every time (smile).
