Abu Garcia Revo Winch Baitcast Reel
1 out of 2 I quess is not bad
I have 2 of the 2013 Revo Wenches. one works pretty fair and the other no matter what just will not cast . I took all the breaks off still no good. cast about 10 yards at its best. the other I can through it a country mile but it sounds like its going to fall apart reeling it back in. I bought them both brand NEW and I have cleaned and done everything to them. I have 12 more Revo's from the SX to the STX in 6 to 1 , 7 to 1 and even 8 to 1. I really like the Revo's .I plan on getting a couple of the new 9 to 1 they have came out with. Just don't know why the wenches are not working.......

abu- revo winch
Own 2 of these since 2013 classic sale. These are #20 & #21 of my arsenal, all other's are BPS brand. Make no mistake, i love BPS reels, and am a big fan, original JM chrome,blue elites, gold's,and 4 current model signature series, unbeatable bang for the buck. But these Abu's are noticeably smoother and dont nearly backlash as easy. Huge handle, which is significant when deep crankin' , makes for a deceptively slow retrive. I do feel the only negative is the 180' line capicity, just adds too much inertia/mass to the over all rpm of a long "max effort" cast,which still could backlash a bit. If BPS reel's are 8 out of 10...these are 9 out of 10! But for $200.00 retail,hard to beat!!

Fish all day
This reel is amazing, i have it paired with a 7'6" heavy action rod, i use it for deep diving crank baits when i am bass fishing. I really like this reel when i am muskie fishing with giant double bladed inline spinners too! great reel! Amazing quality like any Abu, the handles are a little larger, fitting my hand perfectly and the longer handle adds leverage.. I am very impressed.

Revo Winch is a Beast!!!!
I bought this reel to use with a 7'10" MH KVD Tour Cranking Rod throwing deep diving crankbaits. This reel performs like a dream and has no problem handling a big SK 6XD crankbait.
The price tag is a little steep, but its well worth the money for casting big cranks and not working hard. Don't get me wrong, a BPS Pro Qualifier works fine for smaller cranks but the Revo Winch lives up to its name.
Abu Garcia is on top of its game as far as the Revo reels and Vendetta/Veritas rods. You won't be disappointed with this purchase!
