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 5 out of 5 by Turnips Can't beat the price.
Great gear ratio with smooth casting. The silver max is one of the best reels for the price. Max drag of 15LB is also very nice. Flipping switch is a neat addition, however there are other reels for that kind of application. Overall excellent purchase with no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GAbassman44 great buy
love it - it worked great from the moment it came out of the box. I love and fish for bass and have many Garcia products This one seems to be as good as some older units that I have used for years.

I like it. You can use it to flip, as well as casting, which is why I bought it. I have used it a lot over the last year and have not had the first problem with it.
