Abu Garcia Ambassadeur Pro Max PMAX3-L coil review

Next, remove the friction microclicker and spring washers, which, according to the law of the genre, are installed with the concave side to each other. The insides are cleaned, lubricated and ready for assembly. It turned out to master the casting technique quite quickly. In general, I liked the reel.
On the cover there is a bobbin bearing and an overrunning clutch with a backstop..(behind the scenes I clean and lubricate everything), I don’t comment on the lubrication process itself, since there is a lot of information on this issue, how, where and where to apply what lubricants… With properly tuned brakes, there are practically no dashes. Coil, warranty card and "explosion" scheme, well, a small rectangular piece of foam rubber on top.
The patient is ready for the main operation… The reel itself comes in a simple box with a company logo. This is what a wound spool looks like. Everything is spinning and ready for further operation. And yes, indeed, as the manufacturer stated – the main pair is made of yellow metal, we dare to assume that it is brass. Well, in order not to drag the rubber for a long time, Chinese was immediately wound on the spool (a very good eight-strand cord) … about 140 meters entered. To do this, we need to unscrew the stopper and the handle fastening nut.
The overrunning clutch bushing does not look presentable – there are traces of either rust or preservation residues on it …
The updated version received a more rigorous and attractive design, a lighter handle and a body as a whole. Christians with the upcoming bright holiday of Easter, the rest with an even brighter This is the number of cotton swabs I needed to clean and lubricate the coil, and as you can see, in my ears after that, I would not poke around with them. First, we remove the cheek with a magnetic brake… < br /> That’s it, perhaps that’s all. In my unpretentious opinion, a very good low-profile budget
an entry-level reel for those who want to master casting …

Problems arise only when you try to throw not just far, but very far … The friction washers are made of some unspecified yellow material.
It remains to lubricate the roller bearing, and here it seems there is a problem… I purchased the coil for a medium-heavy jig, so its parameters suited me quite well. The thread on the nut is left handed. Maintenance of a spinning reel takes much longer and always leaves a few extra washers behind))

Well, do not be sad, we clean it, we will look later.
Nevertheless, we perform all the steps in the reverse order, assemble the coil, paying attention not to leave a lot of extra spare parts, then we did the cartoon with you and the citizens are happy – they go home … Line capacity of the spool: He also advised me to purchase this new model from Abu Garcia. Next, unscrew the coil handle and the friction brake handle. As you can see, the coil device is very simple, maintenance is not difficult. By the way, in terms of range, a load of 28 grams with a compact bait flew 90 meters, well, the truth is, spinning work and its characteristics play an important role here. By the way, the magnetic system works flawlessly.
I used this set for about a month, and very actively https://jiji.co.tz/20-sofas/shaped (fortunately while on vacation), offhand about 20 serious fishing trips, some of which can be classified as extreme, both for spinning and for the reel (minus temperature, rain, weight up to 56 g)… Now let’s perform an autopsy of the patient, Let’s look into the essence, for this we need a set of screwdrivers, pliers, lubricant and hands growing from Yura…
First of all, about the parameters declared by the manufacturer:
Let’s finish with the mechanics and move on to my own impressions.
This is how the coil mechanism looks like. The background of the purchase of this multiplier reel is quite ordinary – I wanted new sensations, because for many years I was fishing with ordinary inertialess reels, or as they are also called by the people – "meat grinders", I tried a fairly large number of them, and in principle everything suited them, however , all the time I wanted to try myself in casting. By the way, the weight of the spool is 18 grams, the shoulders are coated with titanium nitride. All good and positive. The clutch handle also unscrews to the left.
A casting spinning GAD Harrier from Pontoon21 was purchased with this reel, height 244. test 10 – 35, hard « peg "sharpened for jig fishing for pike perch. I have no complaints about the operation of the magnetic and axial brakes. Next, the turn of the axial brake cover, also with a microclicker.
Everything is fine here, the magnets are in place and in
quantity of 5 pieces.
We unscrew 4 mounting bolts (during assembly, note that one bolt is structurally shorter), lift the lid – and we are inside the rabbit hole. The Abu Garcia Pro Max PMAX3-L multiplier reel has become a follower of the popular budget Pro Max PMAX2 soap dishes with excellent characteristics. Well, to hell with it, because the clutch works fine. A small, final push (one might say a kick) to the purchase was given to me by my friend, who has been fishing with casting gear for a long time and very successfully. Next is the main gear with friction washers, under it are additional friction washers and a ratchet.
The equipment is spartan.
The kit turned out to be quite nice and balanced, and as further practice showed, it was very long-range.
