Introducing: Abu Garcia Max DLC Low Profile Baitcasting Reel
By The Angler
When it comes to fishing reels once in a while we see something new that is out of the ordinary. These little things of magic suddenly pop up and suddenly pops up enlarging one’s eyes. This is what happened to me when I was handed the new Abu Garcia Max DLC Low Profile Baitcasting Reel, recently.
The Aide Of DLC
Abu Garcia Max DLC Low Profile Baitcasting Reel is certainly no ordinary reel. It comes with a DLC which stands for Digital Line Counter. Yes, this low profile reel has a built in digital line counter that helps you gauge how much line has left your reel and how much line you have in your spool. Cool feature for a low profile baitcasting reel.
[ A line counter also aides you with gauging distance; great especially when trolling and want to know how far out your lure is…. ]
How Would It Aide You?
Should you be wondering how a line counter aides you, they do so in a few ways. For starter, you know how much line you actually have when you spool up your reel. You can also you the line counter to gauge depth. A line counter lets you know how much line you have left in your spool which is great, especially when you are battling a hard fighting fish. A line counter also aides you with gauging distance; great especially when trolling and want to know how far out your lure is. There are many good uses of a line counter.
DTT Warning System
One feature of the Abu Garcia Max DLC Low Profile Baitcasting Reel that stands out is the reel’s DTT Warning System. DTT is short for Distance To Tip. This warning system lets you know when you are running very low on line before you actually run out of line. This warning system allows you to take needed measures before you get spooled by a hard fighting fish.
A spool deep enough for most types of fishing. The Abu Garcia Max DLC can take up to 135 yards of 20lb braided lines.

While there are other low profile reels with line counters on them, the Abu Garcia Max DLC Low Profile Baitcasting Reel is certainly one of the better looking ones. Anyway, do check it out on your next visit to your favourite tackle shop. Who knows the inspiration that you may get by having a go at this reel.
