VIDEO TECH REVIEW: Abu Garcia Revo MGX

RRP from $399

Built for discerning anglers, the new Abu Garcia Revo MGX spin reel continues the MGX legacy with its lightweight and compact design.

Featuring 11 stainless steel HPCR bearings + one roller bearing, the Revo MGX spin reel packs a range of advancements including the precision AMGearing system for unparalleled smoothness and durability, Computer optimised (COG) gear design, and Carbon Matrix drag system for smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range.

The one-piece X-Mag alloy gear box provides a super light yet extremely strong gear housing; C6 carbon body and rotor sees significant weight reduction without sacrificing strength and durability;  Rocket Line Management System™ provides better control of all types of fishing lines; Rocket Spool Lip Design™ allows better control of line coming off the spool; and the bent carbon handle with flat EVA knob creates a more ergonomic and lightweight design.

The new Abu Garcia Revo MGX spin reel is ideally suited to a light tackle sportfishing in freshwater and saltwater, targeting trout, bassbream and estuary perch.
