Silver Max Combo
Switching to Baitcaster
I have been diehard into spincast,and fished many times on spincast rods, but last summer and fall, I started to shop baitcasters and the Silvermax Combo really caught my eye. I waited for months until this spring when I picked it up. Now, I don't want to fish with anything else. I am an Abu guy, I prefer Abu products to most others. Those with negative reviews are not really seeing this product to it's fullest potential.

Great Reel.. Not so great rod
I have no problem with the reel, it's the rod that is lacking strength. After the fourth or fifth cast using a Strike King spinner bait, the tip of the rod when attempting to make a cast. I triply hope it was just a flaw in that particular rod cause I am fishing in a tournament next month and most definitely need all of my equipment in working order. Thank goodness I was still in return policy timeframe cause I would really be upset to say the least. After the tournament, I will give a better tauting if all goes well.

I have owned my Silver Max combo for about 3 years now and it still works like a charm. (Every winter I took it apart and cleaned every bit of it, which I would recommend). I have the 6'6" model. It is a great combo and well worth what you pay for it. The rod is strong and sensitive and the reel is silky smooth and casts great. This is also good combo to look at if you're on a budget. My setup is the 6'6" with 10 lb test and I have pulled in bass, so far, up to 5lbs and it handles them with ease (I've actually lifted a 5lb bass straight out of the water pretty easily). The only thing I do have to say is that my flipping switch broke after the first 2 years of owning it, but I didn't use it anyway. If you're interested in the Black Max combo, I have also posted a review for it. I would definitely recommend this combo, especially for younger people who are either new to baitcasters or want a good combo at a good price.
