Hello Johnny Jenkins here to present you my review of the Abu Garcia Revo Rocket. What an extraordinarily amazing reel, especially for those power fishing scenarios, punching, flipping, frogging. All those big line heavy rod techniques and you can even use this for the finesse stuff, any time you need some power fishing stuff when you need to fish fast with this high gear ratio, this is the reel.
Let’s go ahead and get into the review, the specs and different features that this rod has – what an amazing reel.
Packing a lightning fast 9:0:1 gear ratio, this light weight Abu Garcia Revo Rocket casting reel is the fastest low profile reel to ever hit the market. It pulls an impressive 37 inches per turn to pick up the slack any time you need to when doing those power fishing techniques.
It’s perfect for walking the dog with top water lures, burning spindle bates, buzz bates, crank bates back to the boat and it’s infinite brake system features both centripetal and magnetic brakes which provides maximum casting control at your finger-tips.
It’s also equipped with an extended bent carbon handle for increased cranking power and D2 gear range provides for more efficient gear system for increased speed, power, durability and with this light weight blazing fast loaded reel, it’s going to get anything done fishing-wise that you need to. What an amazing reel that Abu Garcia’s come out with.
This reel has 10 stainless steel HPCR bearings and it has one roller bearing. It has an X2 craftic alloy frame and side plates, carbon matrix drag system which is super, absolutely butter smooth. It’s got, like I said, D2 gear range, infinite brake spool, infinite I2 spool, extended bit carbon handle, large AVA knobs and a titanium coated line guide.
Beyond just the specs of this reel, I mean this reel looks amazing. If you have a chance to go put this reel in your hands, you’re going to do it, you’re going to literally want to buy one. I tell you I’m actually really, really impressed. I’ve never owned an Abu Garcia Revo before and I’m glad it happened to be this one. This one also fits my needs perfect for this is be primarily my punching reel. It’s extremely low profile. Check out the actual size of this side-plate where your hand’s going to go. Man, I mean that’s super small, it’s great for punching. You’re using the big weights. You need a light weight, yet durable reel, that can handle those big weights, but it’s got a lot of power to it and it doesn’t feel like a cheap reel at all. And it really shouldn’t but it’s definitely got a really powerful feel to it.
You put this in your hands with a big rod, big line and using big weights for flipping, punching and stuff you’re going to actually feel in total control, especially with the casting control option that you have here. It’s the best of all the worlds that you could have.
The reel knobs here are extremely comfortable when you do need to horse those big fish out you can absolutely crank on this thing and get those fish out of the thickest, mass or anything like that. And what they were basically talking about with the specs of this carbon fiber handle. What carbon fiber allows it to be is really light weight, really super strong, but it’s a big handle for such a small profile reel. I mean this is really big when you see this you’re going to be like really this big handle and what that’s for is cranking power. If you’re crank bate fishing you want a big handle and also when you’re horsing big fish out of cover you need a lot of power and this big handle gives you everything you need to get those big fish out of cover or horse those big fish in when you’re burning spindle bates with those big explosive strikes.
This reel with the 9:0:1 gear ratio, like I say, brings in 37 inches of line, so it’s never that deal where you have to reel in an extra couple of times to be able to make that pitch. I mean it’s right there when you need it. You can just reel up and you can make the next pitch. It’s really impressive and if you want a heavy duty punching, flipping, frogging, reel, this is really spectacular and I’d like to have a few more of them in my arsenal without a doubt.
