Description

But, after a dozen or so casts, I had it where I wanted it. And for the rest of the trip, it was a complete pleasure to use. At no time during fighting any of these fish did the reel feel inadequate. It was strong and smooth all the way around.

What did we catch? In the three-weeks period (25 hours of fishing in total) that we used the Revo X we caught 12 pikes with an average length of 76 cm (2,5 feet). Pictures are included in this review. Abu Garcia Revo X Review Why should you trust me? If I had to comment on what I liked the most about it, I would talk about the larger grips and more extended reel handle. Personally, the longer handle works out better for my use case. That being said, I can imagine some users not enjoying the longer reel handles as much. Perfecting your grip on these might take some time, and there is definitely a learning curve to it. Flaws but no dealbreakers So which attributes and features did I prioritize during the research and testing period? When it comes to attributes, my first focus for any fishing product is on three things: design, quality, and price.Few corners were cut in the design of this product. It is engineered in such a way where anglers can comfortably use it even in stronger wind conditions. However, you must choose your bait carefully, because fishermen who’ve tested it have stated that the reel started to strain when using heavier lures. A bit of plastic is also used in the frame, which is not that great, because this material doesn’t hold up as well when exposed to extreme environments. I used the Abu Garcia Revo® X Baitcast Rod & Reel Combo, which is compatible with this series. Combining the Revo X with this rod was honestly a match made in heaven. The combination was perfect, and each of them was lightweight yet rigid enough to balance each other out. As such, I faced no issues while using this combination.

That being said, every once in a while, I felt like the spinning was “too free,” if I may say so. Since I have developed my own fishing style after doing it for years, I had to tweak it a little more than I did with previous reels while dialing it in. If you have ever used the previous generation of Abu Garcia Revo reels, you might find this model to look and feel relatively similar. Other than a few changes in the size and shape of the reel, it has a very familiar exterior that looks and feels extremely capable and competent. Fortunately, the X2-Cräftic™ alloy frame is lightweight but exceptionally robust. Furthermore, the frames have been designed to be corrosion-resistant, which is vital, considering how much moisture and sun damage these reels are exposed to.

The drag type determines the variety of fish you can reel in, and the Abu Garcia Revo X uses a star drag mechanism. This is good as long as you’re catching fish less than forty pounds, but specimens heavier than this will cause the rod to curve and stretch. It has three gear ratios with 5:4:1 being slow, 6:6:1 being medium while 7:3:1 is high. Its recovery rate ranges from 22” to 30” and the mono capacity is well suited to moderate range casting.
