The new Revo® Premier features a lighter, more compact design
that crosses the sub 6-ounce barrier by utilizing advanced
materials including C6 Carbon sideplates and an upgraded carbon
fiber handle with comfortable EVA knobs. The new wider Infini II™
spool design further improves casting performance without
increasing the overall width of the reel. An upgraded X2- Cräftic™
alloy frame provides more advanced corrosion protection and the
sideplates are constructed from weight reducing C6 Carbon. The
improved D2 Gear System is the next generation in Duragear™
design and provides better efficiency than previous models. A total
of 10 High Performance Corrosion Resistant (HPCR®) bearings
and one roller bearing provide smooth performance and advanced
corrosion protection. The brake system has been upgraded to the
Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Brake (IVCB-IV™), the same top of
the line brake system used in the Revo MGX for precise control,
whether casting heavy jigs or lightweight finesse baits. With 28
positions of external adjustment, the one of a kind design allows
fine tuning on the water without removing the sideplate.
Additionally, the IVCB-IV system allows anglers to cast extremely
lightweight baits, something other baitcaster reels struggle with.
Abu Garcia updates their Revo Series for a third time? It seems like
just yesterday that the company was tweaking their original design
but sure enough rather than resting on their laurels the team at Abu
is looking to capitalize on their momentum with yet another update
to their popular line of low profile baitcasters. The Generation 3
Revo Premier is at the top of the range in this updated series and
features a lighter, more compact design that employs both
aluminum and carbon elements to successfully dip below the 6oz.
barrier. Does Abu sacrifice other areas in the pursuit for an overall
lighter package? It is time to find out as we present our first review
of a Gen 3 Revo reel, and why not start right at the top?
Abu Garcia has long been known for their round reels but since
the introduction of their original Revo low profile baitcasters the
company has taken the market by storm. Quickly garnering the
attention of bass anglers these reels successfully competed right
in the heart of the mainstream market. Were the original reels
perfect? No, but with each season Abu made investments in not
only refining the product itself but beefing up the lineup to address
a wider spectrum of applications, ranging from finesse fishing with
ultra light line to winching up inshore species. They often say that
the third time is the charm and when Abu introduced the new
Generation 3 Revo Series we were excited to see just what the
company had in store for anglers.
