Friday, December 21, 2012
Whether you find yourself at Clear Lake, Falcon Lake, Lake El Salto or any other place where big bass reside, large baits are likely to be part of your arsenal. Finding a reel that can handle the stress of throwing those baits can be exhausting.

Built with a low gear ratio for super-cranking situations, the latest generation of the Abu Garcia Revo Winch is designed around high-resistance baits and the anglers who love to throw them.
To gain this cranking advantage, the Revo Winch features an improved D2 Gear Design – an efficient and powerful gear system that improves the overall durability of the reel.
With a body that includes an X2-Cräftic alloy frame and C6 carbon-infused sideplates, anglers will notice a dramatic 19- percent weight reduction over previous Winch models. The relaxed feel of the Revo Winch is highlighted by an ergonomic, compact design and extended bent handle to give anglers more control during long battles.
The improved Infini brake system allows almost unlimited adjustability to handle any fishing situation while the dual anti-reverse gives anglers additional backup for those high-pressure situations.
The Revo Winch has eight stainless steel ball bearings plus one roller bearing, making this reel one smooth operator. A titanium-coated line guide rounds out the multiple features of the Revo Winch.
The lightweight 6.91-ounce Revo Winch comes in two models and each cranks in 22 inches of line per turn with the 5.4:1 gear ratio.
The Revo Winch has a line capacity of 180 yards of 12-pound monofilament line or 180 yards of 30-pound braid. MSRP is $199.95.
