Abu Garcia Gen 3 Revo Winch Reels
The Abu Garcia Gen 3 Revo Winch Casting Reel is a high line capacity, low profile casting reel designed to offer anglers more power from a compact casting reel. The Generation 3 Revo Winch Reels have arrived! The initial Revo Winch Series revolutionized the casting reel market and re-established Abu Garcia among the industry leaders in fishing reels. Their third generation Revo Winch raises the bar once again.
Whether you find yourself on Clear Lake, Lake of the Woods or Lake El Salto big baits are a necessary evil and finding a reel that can handle the stress of throwing these baits can be exhausting. Built for crankbait fishing and other high resistance baits, the Revo Winch is designed with a low 5.4:1 gear ratio for added cranking power. The improved D2 Gear Design is the next generation of Duragear providing a more efficient and powerful gear system while improving the overall durability of the Revo Winch. An extended bent handle with larger EVA knobs provides greater grip and power while the dual anti-reverse gives you additional back up for those high pressure situations. With a more compact and ergonomic design that includes a X2- Cräftic alloy frame and C6 carbon infused sideplates, you will will notice a dramatic 19 percent weight reduction over previous models. Many anglers were requesting additional control in windy situations so Abu Garcia upgraded the Winch to the Infini brake design. The combination of a Magnetic Brake and sealed Centrifugal Brake allow almost limitless adjustment with the Infini Brake System. The centrifugal brake controls the first half of the cast when the spool is rotation at its maximum speed. Once the spool slows, the magnetic brake then acts on the spool to keep it under control during the last half of the cast.
The newest Revo Winch Reel is Abu Garcia's swimbait reel. For all of you big bait chuckers out there, this is the reel for you. The low speed gear ratio exhibited by the Gen 3 Revo Winch Reel offers a ton of cranking power needed when fighting big bass and also helps keep the retrieve pace slow, much like a slow speed crankbait reel would do. Although swimbaits are one of the first thoughts that comes to mind for the Gen 3 Winch, it's also quite the deep crankbait reel. If you follow professional bass fishing you're well aware of the most recent trend of "long-lining" a technique used to get a crankbait down to its' maximum depth for the greatest possible distance. A high line capacity reel, such as the Revo Winch, is absolutely a must. Although the pro's were aided in letting line out by the help of their trolling motors, the Revo Winch casts a crankbait a country mile without any manipulation allowing the lure to reach its full potential. Once hooked up, anglers will appreciate the extra power afforded by the newest Generation 3 Winch Reel. We'd be remiss to not mention another wildly popular freshwater technique for which the Revo Winch is ideal; the multi-lure or "Alabama" Rigs. The Winch holds approximately 100 yds of 65lb braided line when spooled to the brim - more than enough line to heave those contraptions through the air and certainly enough power to efficiently retrieve the lures and ultimately the big bass that result. We offer the Abu Garcia Generation 3 Revo Winch Reels in both the right and left hand models. The Winch possesses a 5.4:1 gear ratio.
