Abumatic 276i Underspin
"Plastic" Trigger - really??????
Nice reel but the plastic or composite trigger (ie. not metal) is almost guaranteed to break. Mine did after 1 season. The reel is now an expensive paper weight. Parts are available but how to remove the pin holding the trigger in place???????

favorite not yet
This real is my absolute favorite under spin on except for the handle screw starts to loosen or if you switch it from right to left hand. if you tighten the screw too tight it wont turn. too loose and it loosens itself again. tried glue and tread tight,
love the reel. very easy to cast and line maintenance is care free. own 2 of them and have issues with both handles.

The Abumatic 276i spinning reel is superior as it makes it so easy to cast and catch fish. I would recommend this product for both the novice and expert fisherman. This reel spins easily and is wonderful!

Lost and Found
Last year while fishing in a high mountain lake with my Diawa spinning reel, I felt that I had snagged the bootm. But aas I was pulling my line started going in really weird directions. My mind raced but as the leader broke the service I found myself the pround new ower of a underspin Abu Garcia reel.and fishing rod. I took the reel and rod home did a major cleaning of the reel and have been using it ever since in the same lake I found it, with absolutely no problems with it. What a find in both the reel and something that was so simple to clean, re-line and use over and over with no problems.
