The Abu Garcia Pro Max 3 Baitcast Combo delivers first-rate performance in an exceptionally smooth package. The rod is constructed from a 24-ton graphite blank for a lightweight, balanced design. Stainless steel guides with titanium oxide inserts provide extra toughness without excess weight. The high-density EVA split-grip handle makes sure you never lose your hold when you're reeling in that big one. The Abu-designed extreme exposure reel seat offers increased rod contact and sensitivity. The centerpiece of this combo is the low-profile Pro Max 3 baitcast reel. The MagTrax brake system yields consistent brake pressure for better control throughout the cast, while seven stainless steel ball bearings plus one roller bearing deliver remarkably smooth retrieves. The Power Disk drag system provides reliable drag performance throughout the drag range, and the Duragear brass gear offers extended gear life. The compact bent handle and drag star ensure a more ergonomic design. The lightweight, one-piece graphite frame and side plates offer lightweight protection for all of these features and more.
