New Abu Garcia Max Reels

It's hard to imagine that we could take a fan favorite like the Max? family and make it even better. But thanks to advanced technology and materials, the new Max reels are precision engineered with a smoother feel, increased performance on the water and a new more compact design. The new ergonomic design features a compact bent handle and star for added comfort during retrieves.


All Max Family reels feature a lightweight one piece graphite frame and sideplates in addition to a smooth peforming Power Disk? drag system. These reels also include a MagTrax? braking system for consistent brake pressure throughout the cast and the powerful Duragear? ensures extended gear life.
