    Does anyone on here use , or have any opinions on the Abu Black max 6500 reels?I got a couple for christmas and I really liked them so I went back and got some more, $49 at academy cant really beat it.But I saw somewhere on here that it was a grade B reel.Are these reels any good , or did I waste my money?

    Most of the guys I fish with all use The Black Max. If I had the money that would be all I use.

    It depends. Is a Ford any good? Depends entirely upon what your comparing it against. Ford to Lambragini, Ford is not very much. Ford to a moped, Ford is quite a lot. Black Max to a 6500c3 or 7000, it's not much. But it is a lot better than a lot of other reels out there. Treat it with kindness and respect, apply proper maintenance, and your kid will fish with it someday.

    I like mine so far. You can't beat them for the price thats for sure. i have found that not all Academy's sell these though.
