Abu Black Max Review

hi, any bro has got abu black max, care to review on its performance?

I've heard mixed reviews, nevertheless, intending to get one because it's budget and nice looking little low profile reel.

please advise bros!

No comments from me as I've not used it. But the brand alone would have given me some confidence in buying it. :p Here are some comments from fk on people who has used the reel before.
