Hi there,

Nice reel, but sadly a bit too expensive for me.

Have a good day,
Pecheur

That's a lot of drag for a b/c.

Also high capacity spool. Wonder if the level wind works on cast like u need on wider drums.

Revos are beautiful to cast but not so good on durability. Be worth a look though.
Regards
Ronje

I like that it's black with a red handle. Would go well with some of those barra shirts :mrgreen:

Unfortunately they don't send me free ones to send to FFFers to test (hint hint ABU/Berkley). Might have to work on that.

If it's anything like the Revo Toro Winch that has an advertised 20lb of drag.........it's not true........a mate bought one when we went bass fishing to png and it didn't even pull 10lb of drag on the scales.
