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???????
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

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!

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.

I am an avid fisherwoman who had the great fortune of having a father who began taking me fishing at a very young age. I fell in love with fishing and cherished the precious time that we could spend together while fishing. I am committed to passing on that love of fishing to kids. I have a 3 year old great nephew, Cannon Levi, that I purchased the Abu Garcia Underspin Spin Cast reel for, as a Christmas present this past year. I wanted him to have a real rod and reel that he was able to operate and use himself. So, I selected the Abumatic 276i Underspin as his gift. He was beside himself with excitement! We finally had a warm enough day this past January to fish. I took Cannon to a local lake and showed him a couple of times how to operate and cast his new rod and reel. He was able "cast like a pro" and better yet....within minutes he had "FISH ON"! The picture of him catching his first Largemouth Bass is a picture of sheer joy on this 3 year old little boys face. Thanks Abu Garcia for making products that make passing on the love of fishing a breeze! So simple, even a baby can catch fish! But....more importantly....another great deposit in the fishing "memory bank". Pass it on.......
I would recommend this to a friend!
