If you are looking for an outstanding bait casting reel that is lightweight and with great drag performance, the Abu Garcia Revo SX Spinning Reel is your best bet. With a gear ratio of 6.4:1, this reel is the ultimate bait casting reel that almost any fisherman should have in their arsenal.
I’ve been using this reel for the better part of a year now and I gotta say that I have been thoroughly impressed with it. If you are fishing on a windy day, this reel performs beautifully and casts smooth even with lighter lures.
The drag is great, especially when you are fighting bigger fish, and setting it up is a breeze. The smaller, lighter frame allows for me to feel even the slightest bites and nibbles from the smallest of fish.
One of the really cool things that this reel offers is the magnetic braking system that allows for consistent brake pressure and increased accuracy when casting. If you need to adjust the breaking pressure, there is a simple knob that you can turn and fine tune the breaking system to your needs.
The carbon matrix drag setup on this reel provides for low friction and smooth performance that will prevent line breaks and ultimately the ability to catch more fish.
