Fishing Applications and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide

We suggest purchasing the Black Max 40 Spin Reel for your all round heavier inshore applications such as chasing mulloway in lakes, barramundi in rivers and impoundments, cod in the dams, snapper out of the shallow reefs etc. We suggest purchasing a 6-8ft rod to go with the Max 40 size reel. Graphite rods will be the best choice and those that have a rating of anywhere between 4-10kg will be ideal.

You could also use the 40 size on a 3-5kg long and light surf rod as well for targeting whiting or blackfish.

The 60 size is ideal for those heavier offshore boat applications as well as for spinning off the rocks and beach with a slightly heavier line class. Match upto a 9-10ft rod for spinning off the rocks, a 10-12ft rod for fishing off the beach or a 6-7ft boat rod for fishing offshore. We have plenty to choose from in our online fishing store but if you need a hand, simply get in touch with us.


  • The lightweight feel of a graphite body and rotor combined with a lightweight Alloy spool sacrifices nothing in overall strength, while providing fatigue free casting.
  • The Black Max Spin reel can take some punishment. The simple design yet robust construction ensures the Black Max will handle the toughest of species and hardest of anglers.
  • The casting features are the same as the Revo reels, a far more expensive Abu Garcia Model. This means the angler gets the superb casting manners of a spin reel attracting a much higher price tag.
  • The Slow Oscillation provides a dead even line lay. This, coupled with the Rocket line management system and the Rocket Spool Lip Design ensures fantastic casting, a perfect feature when fishing the rocks and beach where long, weighted casting is required
  • Casting manners are such that casting loops are all but eliminated. This is ideal for constant casting in tricky conditions.
