This Black Max has an action that is positioned between the NG and the FG which have been tested and approved over long periods of time. It is not made for casting to 190+ meters like the ADV, C2-D or FMA but it can easily cast to 160+ meters in the right hands. The Black MAX II range is composed of 3 powers, each with unique characteristics. The 12ft 2 ¾ has a softer action that would be more closely suited to canal and pond fishing for distances up to 130 yards with a lead weight between 75 and 100gr. If you need more power to bridle very large fish while minimizing the risk of stalling, then the 12ft 3.00lb is an excellent alternative to fish optimally between 80 and 140 meters. Partnering the 3.00lb with a bait boat for very long distances is a great combination while enjoying a charming game action. Finally, we have the 12ft 3.50lb which is ideal for long distance scenarios; it is capable of casting beyond 160 meters!
While it loses the playing characteristics of the 2 ¾ lb and 3.00 lb, it is still nice with its big casting pedigree and will have more power in the heel. It is perfect for extracting fish from weedbeds, casting with weights between 100 and 140gr or a small Pva bag. If you don't already own a Century rod, the Black MAX II will be your ideal partner, a flawless rod with an amazing price/performance ratio!
