The next generation of Revo reels includes the Revo® MGX from Abu Garcia®. This ultra-lightweight, low-profile reel combines an enhanced compact design with Abu Garcia’s ground-breaking X-Mag™ alloy frame and C6 carbon sideplates. In addition to its lightweight design, the Revo MGX features a unique Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Brake (IVCB-IV™) that raises the standard for cast control in all other reels. A compact bent carbon handle provides a more ergonomic design that is extremely lightweight. Its lightweight frame provides exceptional corrosion resistance and rigidity for excellent gear alignment. C6 carbon sideplates afford 54% in weight reduction over aluminum without sacrificing strength or durability.

  • Nine stainless steel HPcacCR™ bearings + one roller bearing provide increased corrosion protection
  • One-piece X-Mag alloy frame for a super-light yet extremely strong frame
  • Infini II™ spool design for extended castability and extreme loads
  • C6 carbon sideplates provide significant weight reduction without sacrificing strength and durability
  • Carbon Matrix Drag™ system means smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range
  • Aircraft grade aluminum main gear for weight reduction without sacrificing durability
  • IVCB-IV Infinitely variable centrifugal brake gives very precise brake adjustments, allowing anglers to easily cast a wide variety of baits
  • Compact bent carbon handle for a more ergonomic design that is extremely lightweight
  • Flat EVA knobs offer greater comfort and durability
  • Ti coated line guide reduces friction and improves durability
  • Recessed reel foot allows for a more ergonomic reel design
Abu Garcia Revo MGX Baitcast Reel 4.9 5 61 61
Well worth the money! I have just recently switched from spinner reels to bait caster. I have been a huge Abu fan for years now and i own a cheap combo and it works well but i have fought my fair share of nests. I bought the 7.9:1 MGXat Gander Mountain today and i am amazed at how light the reel is and i was like a kid with a new toy at show and tell. Everyone loved the reel. I went to the lake with it and i fished for 5 hours and it never once nested up and i have never casted so far either! I am a bu customer for life. Looking at a Revo wench next. I have it on a Vendetta 7' medium fast currently i will be heading to Bass pro this weekend and buying a Veritas Micro. August 20, 2012
Dominate! Wow! This baitcaster rules! The Shimano Core and the Daiwa Steez are both excellent reels but guess what? The Revo MGX is even better! It's a little lighter for one at 5.4 oz versus Steez 5.6 and Core 6.1 but what gives the MGX the edge is the braking system which is called the IVCB (Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Braking) with this type of braking this reel can cast any size lure or any pound test line! Yep it's true I was casting a 1/12 oz kasmaster with seaguar red label fluorocarbon 4lbs. line around 120ft. and with NO BACKLASHES!! Something the Core and the Steez cant do I know because I tried! The Revo MGX is a fantastic reel! I would strongly consider it if your in the market looking for a top notch baitcaster.. August 19, 2012
good reel but the core is better Overspooling on cast!!!I tried this. Oil the reel and strip about 25yds of line off the the reel once you think it's full. This is what i did to fix the overspool problem. I have a Core and I about returned the MGX for another Core, but it works ok now. August 7, 2012
Best Love this reel i do a lot of wacky worm fishing doesn't matter what size of worm your using it just cruises also when you throw it you don't have to put a lot of effort for it to go far BEST REEL EVER!!! August 5, 2012

Weight

Details: 
If you check out both the revo mgx and the daiwa steez, both claim to be the lightest reel. The mgx is 5.4 oz. so my question is, which reel is lighter, the revo mgx, or the daiwa steez?

A: 
The MGX is well worth the expense I have several Abu reels and they will nest up more often than I like the MGX will cast a mile and hardly no nests except casting into the wind with a light lure.

A: 
If weight of reel and size is important to you, then, "yes", it is worth the additional money. I have a Shimano Calcutta, 200, in the silver version and which costs about
$150 less, which is outstanding, but weighs about 3 or so ounces more. And, dollar for dollar, is better selection.

A: 
I would say yes because of the wide range breaking system the MGX has. I tell what though, the new revo premier is super close to the MGX in preformance but instead of $ paying $149.00 the new premier is $299.00 $50 cheaper than the MGX, its has the exact same breaking system as the MGX plus higher drag at 20lbs. versus 12lbs.

A: 
I thing when using line less that 8lb you should use a spinning reel. I have used 8lb line for fishing jerk baits and cranks to get them deeper. Typical your using very light lures with 4lb line (1/32,1/8 oz or lighter). This reel cast 1/8oz lures very well though.

I have been using this reel since it came out. The line sizes i use are 6 and 8lb test with no problems at all. I wouldn't see why you would have an issue. This reel is simply the best reel I've ever used!

best bet would be a Medium-light or Medium, fast action rod, perhaps a St. Croix Avid, 6'8 or '6'9", or a St. Croix Mojo Inshore, 7' Medium or Medium-Light, Fast Action. I do not own an Abu Garcia Veritas or similar rod, but I have read those rods work well also with that reel.
The St. Croix, Medium, extra-fast, Avid, are super!
