Rated 3 out of 5 by TxKayaker Disappointed I purchase the Revo Premier 2011 version because it was the top of the line Revo. On one of my fishing trips the windage adjustment dial broke off, rendering my reel useless. Fortunately, it was still under warranty and had it repaired. September 7, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim A big let down I bought this reel assuming I was getting a quality piece of kit. It was a real let down especially for the price. I have budget reels that out perform this reel. I used it once light spinning for sea bass and it was grinding after 4 casts. I have flushed it out each time I've used it but it is still very stiff especially under load. I am sending it back for a refund and trying another brand. September 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Concern I do love this reel & hope I just have a bad one, when I have a good size fish on the reel slips. Abu Garcia please let me know how to fix this or should I send it back for a new one as it is still under warranty, I would like to buy a few more but I'm consern about this problem August 29, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by HFS Dissapointed I purchased 4 of the Premiers because of listening to others talking about how great they are. These reels don't cast far. I have several other types of Revos and other brands that will cast over twice the distance than these Premiers. August 18, 2012

A: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.
A:Braided line capacity is 30lbs/130yds.
Details:im trying to decide between the revo premier 30, or the Soron STX 40. Im leaning toward the stx 40 just because its a bigger reel. Any help would be great. I also plan on using 14lb braided line. Thanks.
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.
Details:Just bought this reel and the salesman put 12 pound test on the spool. See for this model only 8 pound is max. Will it have bad effects with this large of test?
A:Are you using the PMR30? If this is your reel you can as it has a max drag of 12lb. I would not go bigger than 10il. myself.
A:YOU MAY HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE LINE JUMPING OFF THE REEL. ALSO YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO HOLD AS MUCH LINE .
A:The recommended line weight for item 38-353-796-00 is 12lbs/180yds of monofilament fishing line.

A:That is the recommended lb test to be put on - the max drag is 12lb - you can put 12lb on it, no problem.
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?
A: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.
Details:I know nothing about fishing. My dad had mentioned wating this reel. What kind of rod would be good with it? Item numbers would be fine. THANKS!
A: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:Pair it with the Veritas or a Johnny Morris carbonlite spinning rod - both are great matches.
A:I have mine matched with the Abu Garcia Veritas and its a perfecft fit for me. Very sensitive and has enough back bone to pull in the big ones.
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.
