This spincast reel is built around an ergonomic body-forward design for easy thumb access to the cast button. Our test model had a sharp frame edge below the button that caught our thumbs, so watch for this. The Maxxum is aimed at larger freshwater quarry like bass and catfish and comes loaded with 150 yards of 14-pound-test mono. There's an oscillating spool for even line winding and double handles for right- or left-handed retrieve. The free rotating pick-up pin reduces line wear. The rotor is stainless steel and the spool cover is made of anodized aluminum.
