Abu Garcia Revo Beast Casting Reel
Engineered specifically for heavy duty applications such as tossing swimbaits, magnum spoons or umbrella rigs, the Abu Garcia Revo Beast is a low profile casting reel constructed with heavy duty gear to withstand the stress of such applications. Throwing a 5oz swimbait on your everyday low-profile baitcaster is a recipe for disaster. Even the most durable, high quality reels will eventually break down from this kind of abuse - they simply weren't made for the task. As the old saying goes, "don't take a knife to a gun fight, well the same is true for casting big baits, fishing heavy cover and targeting big bass - you need the right weapon to combat the strenuous nature each provides.
Constructed from an all aluminum design with Titanium coated sideplates, the Abu Garcia Revo Beast displays incredible strength to weight ratio coming in at just 9.35oz. Keeping the weight down was crucial to reducing fatigue of anglers who were already facing the arduous task of casting heavier lures all day - at least the reel won't contribute to any additional soreness. Strength is obviously the central theme throughout the Revo Beast Casting Reel and is further evidenced by the use of Abu Garcia's Carbon Matrix Drag System and heavy duty, Duragear brass main gear. 22lbs of drag give you the upper hand against vicious trophy bass, stripers, musky and any other species you choose to target.
Moving to the outer elements of the reel, anglers will notice the incredibly deep spool design chosen to increase line capacity as most of these aforementioned techniques make use of heavy lines with a high diameter. Casting swimbaits and umbrella rigs long distances requires enough line to feel secure should a fish hit immediately and make a run. Stripers are notorious for this especially when they engulf a topwater bait the moment it makes its first attempt at movement. You'll have the drag to fight them and the excess line capacity to give them a little if you need to. When you watch a big fish explode on a topwater bait it often proves difficult to catch your breath, let alone find the reel knobs and get to cranking. That's why Abu Garcia elected to use oversized handles and knob on the Revo Beast Reel. Furthermore, the bulked up components provide much greater leverage over the monster on the other end of the line.
