Rated 4.7 out of 5áby 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby totally satisfied After relocating I am now a "shore" caster, fishing for muskie, walleye and pike. Having used high round Abu's for years with mono I decided to use braided line and due to the diameter of the line, I thought I'd try a low profile reel. I thought at first that the low price of the silver max indicated an inferior cheaply built reel but having excellent service from my round Abu reels I thought I'd try a low profile by Abu. While using a 7ft. medium heavy rod and experimenting with the braking adjustments on the silver max I am now getting 55-60 yd casts with a 3/4 ounce hook-less plug consistantly without bird nests. Don't think of this reel as a "training" reel because of its low price as it's dependability, smoothness and out of sight casting ability equals that of the most expensive low profile reels. How can I say this?....since my silver max purchase I have bought 5 other low profile reels costing three times as much and they DO NOT out perform Abu's silver max. August 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby I'm going to buy another! I had one baitcast reel years ago and was uneducated about how to use a baitcast reel properly. Gave up. Have just been using spinning reels since. Wanted to buy another baitcast reel and have done my research and found Abu Garcia reels to be very favorable. I was looking at the Black Max 3 but could not find one in a left hand retrieve. My local Dick's Sporting Goods in Oneonta NY only had the Silver Max in a left hand. Thought I would give it a go. I bought separately an abu garcia vendetta baitcast rod to go with it. Bought it today, set it up. Used it today. Not a problem! Caught one bass and had zero backlash or birds nests! It is so easy and faster to use than a spinning reel. As long as you know what the reel functions are. I recommend watching plenty of YouTube videos and learn about these reels. The silver max will help you a lot on preventing backlash, but you have to be aware what you are doing when you cast. I fished for an hour and dialed down the "help" from the reel and am casting a lot farther. I put 14lb spiderwire mono on and not a single issue. Don't be angry and call reels garbage cuz you are uninformed about how these reels work. It won't do it all for you. I highly recommend picking one up and practicing. You won't regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Abu Garcia silver max Very good for the price and a must for beginners. Got mine and I was surprised how good it is to adjust for different baits. July 5, 2016
