Abu Garcia Fishing Reels The Abu 5500S is a decent reel for the money. Don’t fool yourself and think that you are buying a quality Swedish made reel, like Abu’s of the past, you are not. This reel is made in China, as are most fishing reels these days. Abu still makes a few models in Sweden, but they cost more than $200.Taking design cues from the Revo® lineups, the Pro Max™ spinning reel boasts the same exceptionally smooth package as it’s low profile counterpart with a lightweight graphite frame and seven bearing system. The Pro Max also features our Rocket Line Management System™ allowing maximized casting distance while reducing wind knots.
Taking design cues from the Orra® and Revo® lineups, the new Pro Max™ reel 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 reel that is engineered to take the abuse day in and day out.
