Taking design cues from the Orra and Revo lineups, the new Pro Max delivers first-rate performance in an exceptionally smooth package. The externally adjustable MagTrax casting brake ensures efficient casting control while the 7+1 stainless steel bearing system delivers a remarkably smooth retrieve. The result is a lightweight, compact combo that is engineered to take the abuse day in and day out.

Smooth real at budget price

I ended up getting 5 of these reels over the course of the summer as I needed to upgrade some gear. These did not disappoint. Thus the reason I kept buying more. At a budget conscious price point these reels a great addition to my arsenal. The extra casting distance I got out of these vs my older reels was excellent. Don't get me wrong, these aren't up to par with the Revo line, but they are still great reels.
