Revo fans it’s time to celebrate! Tackle Warehouse has released for sale the new Abu Garcia Skeet Reese Revo and Revo Winch Casting Reel ! Adding to Last years Revo Premier, as well as Revo STX, SX, S and Inshore models, these two new additions fill in a niche not covered by the other models. The new Skeet Reese signature model carries a list price of $279.99, ($20.00 over the Premier) making it Abu Garcia’s most expensive Revo to date. This feature laden signature reel is based on the Premier frame, yet has 10 bearings instead of the Premier’s 6 and has a beefed up Carbon matrix drag giving it the same power as the STX with 24lbs. A longer handle and larger grips differentiate this model as well. Best of all the utilization of Abu’s proprietary aluminum alloy, X-crafitic, keeps this reel in the 6oz weight class. Coming in at 6.8 oz, which is only .45oz over the Premier! Note this reel can hold 145 yards of 12lb test and makes use of a 6 pin centrifugal break design as opposed to the linear magnetic breaking system found on the STX, SX, and Premier.
The new Abu Garcia Winch ($199.99 retail) files into the cranker’s niche as its deep spool, long handled, 5.4:1 gear ratio design gives these anglers a solution for longer casts and more power. This reel appears to be similar in weight to the STX coming in at 8.5oz. Similarly it features 11 bearings, a carbon matrix drag, 6 pin centrifugal break design, and can hold 175 yards of 12lb test.
These two reels are sure to generate excitement amongst Revo fans everywhere and with another new reel the “Toro” set to come out during ICAST, they sure are bringing their “A” game to battle with the new Curado.
