The Abu Garcia 275U is an under-spin model with a trigger release that keeps the reel to a reasonable size. Initially, we began testing the 275 standard spin-cast model (which has the same specs as the 275U), but its anti-reverse failed. There were no problems with the 275U, however. Testers who normally fish spinning reels preferred the reel's under-spin design, and gave this model praise for casting and drag adjustment and performance. There were a few comments about poor material quality and some thought it was noisy during casting, but the price is good and Abu Garcia is synonymous with reliability.
