This reel just feels so good in your hand. It's light so you can fish with it for hours without getting fatigued. Drag is strong and it feels smooth. I have had mine for a while now and it still operates like new. Highly recommended, it is worth the heavy price tag.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a high end reel that is smooth and will allow you to cast an array of weights far, the Abu Garcia Revo Premier is a fantastic option provided you have some budget. The reel's reviews are just about all positive, and many recommend this is a go-to reel for bass anglers.
