Abu Garcia Revo Reels

Abu Garcia reels are among the best reels in the world. The Abu Garcia 5500 reels I bought in 1977 are still working today. I have about 50 rod and reel combos and about half of them have the Abu Garcia name on them. That’s why I would strongly recommend you ad a few to your arsenal.

With my love of Abu Garcia reels, I was thrilled to try a few of their new Revo line of reels. The revos did not disappoint. Take a look at why I strongly recommend the Revo Rocket

The Abu Garcia Revo Rocket Baitcasting Reel, the fastest low-profile reel in Abu Garcia’s Revo lineup, has an impressive 37″ of line retrieval per turn. Whether you are walking-the-dog with topwater lures or burning up spinnerbaits, buzzbaits or crankbaits, the Abu Garcia Revo Rocket Baitcasting Reel delivers the ultimate package for techniques requiring high-speed retrieves. Infini™ Brake Design combines a magnetic brake and sealed centrifugal brake, which allows an almost limitless adjustment to suit any fishing situation. The centrifugal brake controls the first half of the cast when the spool is rotating at its maximum speed. As the spool slows, the magnetic brake acts on the spool to keep it under control during the last half of the cast. The X2-Cräftic™ alloy frame and sideplates offer increased corrosion resistance. Ten stainless steel HPCR™ bearings plus one roller bearing provide increased corrosion protection. Carbon Matrix™ drag system provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range. D2 Gear Design™ provides an efficient gear system while improving gear durability. The Infini II™ spool provides extended castability and handles extreme loads. For increased cranking power, there is an extended bent carbon handle. Large EVA knobs provide improved grip. Titanium-coated line guide reduces friction and improves durability.

  1. Great review on the Abu Garcia Revo Reels , I remember getting my first Garcia reel and honestly have a hard time going with anything else. I love the craftsmanship of this brand. They also have entry level reels that beat out a lot of their competition and give you a little taste of the quality before making a bigger purchase. I own a Garcia bait casting reel similar to this model and hands down it’s my favorite reel in my arsenal.

    1. Thanks Jesse. Abu Garcia’s quality is without question world class. I purchased my first Abu Garcia 5500 reel in the mid 1970s,I did so on the recommendations of friends who had been using them for years. I used the reel until it was stolen in 2001. I think you would agree that if you want a reel that will last a lifetime, you can’t go wrong with Garcia.

  2. It has been a long time since I have done any fishing. Reading through your site has actually made me want to get back into it. Theres a good spell of weather coming, I might grab the rod and head to the lake.

    1. Thanks Jason. Don’t wait too long to get out there,take a day off get out on the lake and just relax. Good luck,and if you catch the fish of a lifetime be sure to take pictures, and share them here with everyone.
