Black Max Combo
some people shouldn't have a baitcaster in their hands !!!!!!
Love the rod, stylish and functional , love the low profile reel design, fits the hand just perfect! Love the gear ratio, and let's not forget the snazzy red and black. Overall one of the nicest combos I've ever seen !!! So it makes me sick to see some of these reviews from some of these guys that do nothing but bird nest every cast,, and don't understand its about the line, or brake system or just know how !!!!!! Its not fair to Abu Garcia, that they should not even own a baitcaster not know how to use one,, then get on here and write a bad review, when u hear that guy talking about bird nest every cast.!! We all know that guy ! Go buy a push button zebco !!!!!!!!! Ambassador fan for life ....

I love it but....
I purchased this combo in March 2013 and posting this review April 2013. I have been able to fish with it 4 times with a total of 20 or less fish landed. On my 4th outing i noticed white fuxxys coming from the tip. I soon realized that the fuzzys were my line being "shaved". I knew right away that the insert on the tip had broken or cracked. I look and yup that is the problem. The rod was stored in a rod holder on a boat and never abused. I love the pole as well as the reel but the strength/durability of the pole take it all the way to the bottom and the craftsmanship took a hit because of it. Other than that the casting is outrageous. I was slinging light weight plastics with no weight without having "rainbow". On the fish I caught the rod set the hook with minimal effort. All in all it's a good combo, but for me has one major defect. The only way I can recommend this product is if AG stands by their product and helps remedy my problem.
