Gear Review: Abu Garcia Revo MGX Spinning Reel

What is it?

Abu Garcia Revo MGX Spinning Reel

What sets it apart?

It is incredibly smooth and built with the angler in mind who demands perfection out of their fishing equipment. Weighing a feathery 6.2 ounces, the MGX legacy continues with the addition of the MGX spinning reel platform. To achieve super-lightweight performance, construction starts with a unique X-Mag magnesium alloy one-piece gear box design. The addition of a C6 carbon stem and rotor cut down on weight without sacrificing strength. Premium aluminum machined gears provides outstanding gear feel, durability and performance. A 10+1 HPCR bearing system delivers exceptional corrosion resistance and super-smooth operation.

How do I use it?

There is plenty of room in your growing arsenal for a solid spinning reel. This one is designed to effectively manage your line while you manage a big fish at the other end. The Rocke line management system provides better control for all types of lines, and the Rocket spool lip design will grealty reduce the chance of tangles as the line comes off the spool. Also, the compact bent carbon handle provides a more ergonomic feel that is extremely lightweight increasing endurance, which means more time on the water and more fish in the boat.

Angler’s insight:

There are plenty of largemouth applications for spinning reels, but to really put the MGX to the test, battle 6- to 7-pound smallmouth, like those that swim in Mille Lacs. This lightweight and sturdy reel will be a key component to winning the battle. Smallies don't know quit, neither does the Abu Garcia Revo MGX spinning reel. You'll love this thing.
