Guide Review - Abu Garcia Revo Reel
I use the STX teamed with a All Star rod and throw topwater baits and crankbaits with it. I landed a 8 pound, 13 ounce bass on this outfit in a club tournament. For the past two years I have used this reel on almost every tournament I have fished as well as many other trips and it is still smooth and reliable.
The Toro is on a St. Croix rod and I use it for jig head worms. I have been using this reel a lot over the past few yesrs and it also holds up well. It is even smoother than the STX and is a great reel for pitching baits.
Abu Garcia has a reputation for holding up over time and these reels promise to continue that tradition.
Any reel in the Revo series would be a good choice. Pick the one that fits your budget.
