The New Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reels are a simple, no-nonsense design that provides excellent strength and durability. With the addition of 6+1 bearings, cranking is silky smooth giving the angler great support when loaded and fighting.
The entry-level price tag is well below its performance credentials. The Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reels are ideal for the novice but will impress all anglers looking to target larger fish without busting the budget. The Pro Max also looks fantastic, with the black body and gold features, set alight by stylish yet practical spool porting.
While simple in construction, performance is anything but, with seven bearings, a lightweight graphite body and rotor, and machined aluminium spool provides smoothness and strength.
With simple, elegant design, comes robust performance and durability. Pro Max Spin is the perfect fishing reel for the angler that can be hard on their gear. The Pro Max is smooth enough to satisfy most anglers but will be an ideal purchase for the newbie and novice.
Ideally suited to both braid and mono, the angler preferring to drift traditional fishing bait over banks, using mono lines will enjoy the Pro Max, as will the lure caster tossing soft plastic fishing lures or hardbodies.
The lure angler will love the casting manners of the Pro Max. Slow Oscillation, combined with the Rocket line management system and the Rocket Spool Lip design, will mean you are more likely to enjoy tangle-free casting as the line lay is smooth and even. Whichever type of line you use, it will peel off the spool with ease. Casting is more often long and accurate and free from tangling inducing loops.

Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reels Buying Guide
There is four sizes to choose from when ordering and below we have created a little buying guide to help you decide which pro max fishing reel you should purchase. We sell two ranges. Small sizes and Medium Sizes.
Small Size Class Models:
Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reel (Small Sizes) 20 or 30 are Ideal for light fishing in rivers lakes etcetera.
You can point your Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reel Small Sizes 20 or 30 at most Aussie inshore favourites. Great for Trout and Bass in the fresh rivers and Lakes and Ideal for casting lures for Bream and Flathead in the bays and salt rivers.
We recommend pairing the 20 size reel up to a 6-7ft rod with a rating around the 2-5kg mark, and for the 30 size, we recommend a 6-7ft rod with a line rating around 3-6kg.
Medium Size Class Models:
Get access to bigger fish and more locations for less money with the Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reels Medium Sizes 40 or 60.
Kitting up for the rocks and beach can be an expensive process. The New Abu Pro Max reels make it a whole lot more accessible and a heck of a lot more wallet friends.
Both the 40 or the 60 will see you well placed for light rock work and beach fishing. Both reels will also prove ideal for the boat out offshore.
Use the 40 everywhere on the inshore waters as a light general purpose fishing reel. It will be ideally pegged against bigger Flathead and the likes of Mangrove Jack. You will also have enough power to wrestle a more substantial Mulloway. It will be great on the beach for awesome sports action against whiting and perhaps the odd salmon. Cast hard bodies in the top end for serious Barra action.
Hit the rocks and Beach with the 60. There is enough drag and plenty of spool capacity for hunting serious Mulloway from the beach gutters and ripping monster Pigs from their hiding spots near the ocean rocks.
From the boat, the 60 will work brilliantly for chasing nearshore surface feeders like Mackerel, as well as for dropping Squid down to catch big Snapper.
The Pro Max 60 is the bigger of the models and is suitable for beach rock and boat fishing. If you choose to fish off the beach with this size pro max, our ideal recommendation is a 10-12ft rod. For off the rocks we recommend an 8-10ft rod to match this reel and for off the boat a 6-7ft rod with a rating of around 10kgs or so.
For the 40 Size reel, we recommend using this reel on a 6-7ft barra spin graphite style rod, 6-7ft snapper graphite rod, light 3-5kg surf or an 8-9ft light shore spin rod.
If you need any help with rod selections, get in touch with our fishing tackle shop team.
Cranking is smooth with and effortless feel thanks to the 6 bearings. The 7th bearing is the roller bearing.
The Everlast Bail system and Rocket Line management System are perfect whether you are using braid or mono.
The slow oscillation ensures an even line lay which works brilliantly in concert with the Rocket Spool Lip Design for long casts, every time.
Simplicity in design ensures simplicity in operation. Moreover, this approach delivers and incredibly robust reel for the price, and will stand the test of time.
The Abu Garcia Pro Max Spin Reels get you out on the river, local lake, boat or rocks and beach for a very small outlay. These fishing reels are brilliantly priced for the budget minded anglers who, at the same time, like assurances that performance and durability is not compromised.
