ORLANDO, Fla. — The Abu Garcia Revo Beast has been awarded the Best Freshwater Reel Award at the 2014 ICAST show in Orlando, Fla. The new reel tests the limits of what is possible for a baitcast reel.
The Beast was born for throwing big baits. Whether it's a heavy schooling rig, large swimbait or other big lure, the Abu Garcia Revo Beast excels. Wrestling big fish from heavy cover is in its DNA. Armed with a 22-pound max drag and deeper spool for extra line capacity, the all-new Abu Garcia Revo Beast will change the way anglers fish.
The reel is equipped with oversized, ergonomic handles and EVA power knobs to harness the muscle of this powerful reel. Even the Beast's exterior is tough with its Titanium-coated sideplates that provide increased scratch resistance and sleek finish.
An X-CrÄftic alloy body gives the Beast a durable corrosion-resistant framework to complement the lightweight, well-balanced platform. The Beast is equipped with the Carbon Matrix drag system for smooth, consistent drag pressure at any drag setting.
The Duragear brass main gear and D2 Gear Design extends gear life, and maximizes performance when it matters most. Even the line guide is Titanium coated to reduce friction. The Infini II spool design is among the smoothest in the industry.
Whether cranking the depths on Lake Amistad or flippin' standing timber in South Carolina, the Beast remains smooth from cast to crank with seven stainless-steel High Performance Corrosion Resistant (HPCR) bearings plus one roller bearing and 7.1-to-1 gear ratio, while the Infinii brake adjusts for a variety of baits or wind conditions.
Tipping the scales at just 9.35 ounces, the Beast has an MSRP of $349.95 and will be unleashed in the fall 2014.
