Silver Max Baitcast Reel For the money, this bait cast reel is amazing. I have the 6.4.1ratio version and it cast and reels in buzz, spinner, and weighted soft plastics flawlessly. I currently have it paired with a 6/6 ft med heavy Falcon micro guide rod and love it. I have been using 12lb Vicious fluorocarbon line, with this set up and have no problems with my line on this reel. This reel has a great drag, is easy to tune to your lure, and reels/cast extremely smooth. I have not really used the flipping switch much, but it is a cool feature to have. Compared to other reels in this price range, this is the best for the amount of features you get. A 6 bearing system, the most line recovery per crank in its price range, a fast gear ratio, the most line able to be spooled, and a flipping switch! Plus this reel visually looks cool. If your wanting the most bang for your buck, buy this reel, you will be pleased. July 30, 2012
Nice Baitcaster I bought this as my second baitcaster, the first one I had was a old quantum that someone gave me. No matter how I set it, I could not cast it without backlash. I was about to give up on using a baitcaster then I decided to buy this guy. Wow, what a difference, I practiced in the yard till I got the basic motion down. Took it out for the first time yesterday, making nice smooth long or short cast now. This thing cast like a bullet, I just learned to use this thing, and I'm easily making 75 to 100 foot cast with a 1/2 ounce lure. Very pleased, I see myself buying of these in the future.

The Silver Max let me down. I have always been a Shimano and Pflueger kinda of guy, but decided i was gonna try an Abu Garcia Product. Bought the Silver Max Combo and used it 2 days and the spool release button hangs up and will not engage the reel. Guess it was defective. It needs to be replaced or get my money back. Thanks, FeBaker July 29, 2012
Great first bait-caster reel! While i was looking at different bait-caster reels this reel really stood out to me because of its reasonable price and quality. This is not only the my first bait-caster but it is also my first Abu Garcia, i was recommended by both my dad and a few friends that this was a quality brand. Now i sure do believe it, the Silver Max is very smooth for both casting and reeling, the brake system is very easy and quick to use, the drag is smooth, and it is very easy to clean and lubricate. When i first took it out fishing only the first 3 or 4 casts i got birds-nests, it is very easy to cast and you can cast if very far and accurately with some practice. July 23, 2012

Then if you Have wind to Deal with turn up the side Plate to cure Backlash or over runs.. You Must set the Main Knob to the weight of the Lure Your using. This is a start Setting . in time you may be able to go free up the main Knob more and be able to feather the spool with Your thumb

There's not much to it really. You just have to set the brake a little lighter.

A: 
Like any other baitcaster, you set the tension knob so the lure maintains a controlled fall during free-spool and then sat the brakes so that when the lure hits the water, you spool is not spinning too fast

A: 
I usually set mine for the weight of the lure and turn the flipping switch off. But that is just the way I do it. And the wasy I do it works pretty good until I get a backlash, one of which I have spent an hour and a half trying to fix.

A: 
I am not sure that this is the best beginners reel. I have three low-profile baitcasters. But it is cheap enough to be a good beginner reel. So I am not sure that is or is not. I do think that an anti-backlash reel like the shakespeare one would be better for this prurpose.

A: 
Press the flipping switch. Bingo you're there.

Of course you do have to put on the proper line (in South Fla that would be 65 lbs braid) and tighten the drag so it has little give.
