Is the Abu Garcia Black Max baitcast reel good for bass? Or any fish?

First let’s look at the price of the Black Max reel – under $50.

It’s a very inexpensive baitcast reel and from a well known manufacturer…Abu Garcia. They have been around for a very long time. The reviews are very good too. A few people had issues but they were sent new reels from Abu Garcia. Nice job!

Abu Garcia Black Max Baitcast Reel

I’m not a baitcaster guy but I have to say the Black Max is a really nice looking reel. The features and technology in this reel make it appealing not to mention the low price tag. I love the graphite body. I would definitely like to try one of these for bass and trout. I’m typically a spinning tackle guy but I may get one of these and match it with an Ugly Stik Elite rod.
