Abu Garcia REVO Rocket Baitcaster
I ordered the Abu Garcia REVO Rocket from BSP during the Spring Sale, it was originally $300 marked down to $130 or so for the sale. I did not have the need for a new reel, but was intrigued by the 9.0:1 gear ratio, which equals 37" of line return per handle revolution. I do not have any high speed reels, and was wanting to get others opinions on the reel and what it has excelled at for you.
I am looking at using it as a niche type reel for topwater or jig fishing...since those are the techniques where I believe the fast retrieve will be a benefit...Opinions?
