Fishing Gear: Abu Garcia Revo Rocket

Description and Application: The Revo Rocket features an asymmetric body design and our X2-Cräftic alloy frame and sideplate to provide the ultimate balance in weight, strength, and ergonomics. The EXD Concept design allows anglers to maximize their casting performance. Anglers have ultimate control with nearly limitless braking options thanks to our IVCB-6 braking system. With 18lbs of Power Stack Carbon Matrix drag and a blazing fast 10.1:1 gear ratio. Redesigned from the ground up, the 5th generation of Revo low profile reels have been designed to provide precision, power, and performance—perfect for techniques where speed is key such as topwater and flipping.

Staff Perspective:There was a time when I thought reel speed was a gimmick, but after being in countless scenarios where I needed to pick up slack line as quickly as possible for a solid hookset, I learned why. There are many times when flipping or even casting jigs that a bass will pick up the bait out of reaction on the fall, that’s when you need to pick up line and set the hook before the fish drops the bait. Same with a frog in the slop—walk-the-dog topwaters? There’s even an argument to be made with jerkbaits—among others. Bottom line is the newly redesigned Rocket gets the job done—and fast. These reels not only perform and look good while doing it, they are ergonomically friendly to ensure days-long usage without creating any hand fatigue.

Cost:$329.95
