Abu Garcia Max X Reel – Baitcaster

The ABU Garcia Max X baitcaster is the sort of no-nonsense fishing reel that will handle the regular punishment dished out by fanatical top-end Barra anglers. Check the rivers during the runoff, and you will see every style of rod reel and fishing imaginable as hordes of anglers chase our most famous of fish.

You are guaranteed to see three in a tinnie treating their reels and kit with utter contempt. Durability is order of the day in the tropics as all the elements, and the anglers themselves try everything to destroy their kit. You want a fishing reel that has the performance to get the lures where required and battle our toughest competitor when hooked. It also needs to handle being smacked about the bottom of the boat, impacted on gunnels, pointed at crocks and doused in blood, sweat and the inevitable tears.

Simplicity is your answer to trouble-free fishing, and the Abu Garia Max X gives you performance coupled with simplicity. Whether cast or trolled, you will fish with confidence knowing your fishing reel will do as it’s told with elegance and blind loyalty yet handle a fair level of rough treatment.

Great ergonomics and styling are standard, as is the affordable price tag. When looking for a lightweight baitcaster reel with plenty of grunt, capability and a strong constitution, you need to look no further than the Abu Garcia Max X Baitcaster. The Max X is excellent entry-level technology, brilliant for the harsh Aussie conditions and determined Aussie anglers.
