The Abu Garcia Revo Premier Spinning Reel makes liberal use of Abu Garcia's revolutionary NanoShield technology to create a protective exoskeleton that's up to 300% stronger than graphite and up to 50% lighter than aluminum! The Revo Premier Reel's NanoShield also makes key parts of the reel perform better than standard elements.A NanoShield spool, for instance, is lightweight, corrosion resistant and up to 50% lighter than a comparable aluminum spool.

A NanoShield reel stem is up to 300% stronger than a comparable graphite stem, without the added weight of aluminum. Other features include a full nano exoskeleton, instant anti-reverse, a sealed Carbon Matrix drag and an Everlast bail. The Abu Garcia Revo Premier Spinning Reel also features a rugged, one-piece gearbox which allows the reel's design to be much more compact while reducing its overall weight.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 121 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best! I have used the Suveran S3000M by Abu Garcia for years. I have also used some other brad reels not gonna mention them. Hands down the Abu Garcia Revo Premere is the best! Until Abu Garcia comes up with the next best one the Revo is the one to get and use. It's just a solid piece of equipment and has never let me down. In fact I am getting another one to go with the three I already own. Super, Super Reel!! Pair this reel with a St.Croix Premere series rod and your set. Smooth. Easy to clean! Great Drag system! 11 HPCR bearings! Yep this one is the one! August 5, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Worth the Price I have a Pflueger Supreme that out perfoms this reel in every way, and does not have the stiff handle turn and friction when under load, as does the Abu Garcia. It is simply not worth the extra $150.00! In fact, it isn't worth what I paid for the Pflueger Supreme. In my opinion, a reel costing this much should be exceptional. I have had great luck with Abu Garcia spinning rods, though. June 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by abu garcia revo this is one of the 100 plus rods and reels i have and have to say,its a awesome product,its versatile and cast like a dream...in my opinion they dnt have enough stars to rate just how awesome this product is......bar none...its a 10 plus on a 10 scale highly reccommend this item for the pro fisherman,and the novice fisherman June 17, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Gone down hill When I first got the revo premier 20 for Christmas, it was really smooth. It has been smooth up untill about 2 months ago. It feels awesome when just winding it without any line, but whenever there is tension when I'm retrieving lures or fighting a fish, it starts to grind and becomes tight, noisy and not smooth. I have no idea what's wrong with it as I've serviced and flushed it out many times with no improvement. Paired with my veritas 1-3kg and 6lb NanoFil it has been an awesome outfit. September 27, 2012

Yes but you need to put a mono backing on it. Make sure you tie a good knot. This will prevent a breakdown when it counts.

Staff Answer
A: 
Steelhead are a popular target for fly fishers, which they would use a fly reel with a large arbor. Spinning reels are “taxed” to the maximum with the normal scorching runs of the steelhead trout. It is worth the extra money to purchase a mid-range to high-end priced spinning reel with a dependable reputation and a good drag system. The typical spinning reel is loaded with approximately 150 yards of 7-8 pound high-quality monofilament fishing line.

Size of Revo Spinning Reel

Details: 
-- just saw a Revo 30 & it's too big & heavy. I'm looking for something comparable to the discontinued Shimano 2000 size. How would a Revo 20 compare to an old Striadic 2000?

I have a Shimano Saros 3000 and Revo Premier 30. The Revo is bigger, but much lighter than the Saros. The Revo is also stronger than my Saros 3000. After catching a 9 pound stripped bass, I'm giving my saros to my son.

I compared the 30 and 20, not much size difference. For the money go with the Soron. Great real, half the price. Hope this helps

For that lenght of rod, a 20 would be your best bet between the two sizes. A Pflueger 25 or a Shimano 1000 size would be your best bets IMHO.

I have fished with this reel a great deal and I have a 7' medium light St. Croix Premier rod. It's a perfect fit. Yesterday I caught a 9 pound stripped bass in heavy current and the Revo and St. Croix performedf great.

A: 
Item number 38-162-242-00 is a good choice its the Abu Garcia® Veritas™ Spinning Rod the price is 99.99. It would be a good choice, I wont bore you withe the details, My personal choice would be item number 38-153-704-00 its the BPS (Bass Pro Shops) Johnny Morris® Elite Series its on clearance 119.77, If those are too high for you then try item number 38-130-230-00 Its BPS Tourney Special rod I personally own one of these they are great, but If I was buying that reel I would go with the Johnny Morris rod, the regular price is something like 150+. I hope this helps you, your dad is very lucky I would pass out cold if someone gave me that reel, or any one of these rods.
