Every wonder how to change the line on your baitcast reel, the proper way? Well you are going to find out in the video below Pro Bass fisherman Scott Martin shares how to change the line on your bait casting fishing reel.
The crank and drag gears are stainless steel making the drag super smooth. Casting is as far as your skills allow you to cast, which in my bragging rights, is a mile! It easily handles all lure types even those huge Double 10’s!
This is an Abu Garcia reel review or the Abu Garcia Silver Max.
The unique feature of the Abu Garcia SMAX2 Silver Max Low Profile Baitcast Reel is it has a small “switch” that allows you to “flip” your lure while holding down the line release lever which helps to cut down on birds nests. Superb break system. The reel itself is fairly light and fits nicely in the hand. The controls on this reel are very easy to set. Great real for bass fishing. Casting is smooth and great casting distance. The retrieve smooth and fast. Great for for salt and fresh water fishing. Great reel for left handers with a great price. Comparable to the REVO for those on a tighter budget.

PROS: This reel is super comfortable and fits in the hand perfectly. It’s extremely fast and works well with even lighter weight lures to heavy weights. Great for buzzbaits and spinners, especially for those smallmouth bass! The reel is lightweight, weighing only 6.75 ounes, and the larger handle allows for faster reeling speed. It doesn’t seem to have a problem with birdnesting, and the magnet and centrifugal brake system are amazing, along with all the other various adjustments one can make.
CONS: Can’t seem to locate a lube port hole like most my other Abu Garcia’s have. Cost is on the higher end.
