Abu Garcia® Silver Max™ Low-Profile Baitcast Reels 4.3 5 67 67
Distance Champ Conducted a distance casting test for 4 reels I own today Silver Max, Bass Pro Shops® Extreme, Bass Pro Shops® Pro Qualifier, and a Daiwa Procaster 100BL Using the same rod and the same lure, a 5/16 oz Scum Frog® Popper, 35lb braid on all reels. Reducing the settings on all reels until blacklash took over the Max was the clear winner, even though the magnetic cast control was set to almost full on to keep it from bird nesting with a hard cast. I do most of my baitcaster fishing with the Bass Pro Shops Extreme because it is a 7.1:1, and I like the fast retrieve, but for casting a light frog the Max is the one to use June 24, 2012
Great Reel but shreds my line. I love the feel of it, but it keeps shredding my line. I tried useing 10lbs Fluorocarbon and 17lbs Fluorocarbon, and they both get torn up. Does any one know if it is possible to use Fluorocarbon with this reel? Or is something wrong with my reel? June 19, 2012
Works great sometimes... Last year I wanted this reel really bad. I tried three different stores and finally came across one. I picked up silvermax combo and was stoked to catch a fish with it however, I constantly get backlashes, ive tried about 8 different types and brands of line and each one just seems to do the same thing so I took the cover off to look at the brakes and it looks like one of the magnets are missing. Id have to say im pretty dissapointed with this reel. I have multiple abu garcias and didnt really have problems with them June 10, 2012
Power handle Like the reel would love to change out the handle for a power handle if possible. Do you guys make such a product for these reels? Itd help alot for pullin bass outta thick cover. June 4, 2012

Tie the Lure You want to Flip or Pitch On. with the Reel on the rod at a 45 degree angel to the ground Keeping your thumb on the spool some. from thigh-en to more free spooling slowly turn the knob Till the Lure falls to the ground . when it Hits the Ground there should be no Overrun or Backlash at all with the side Plate sent to Zero.. 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.
