Abu Garcia Revo Inshore Gen 3
February 7, 2014
Bought this reel in July 2013. Took it out on 3 weekend trips and the Thumb Disengage stopped working - It would go to free spool but then would not re-engage when the crank handle was turned. Required aggressive percussive maintenance after every cast.
The reel was properly cleaned and lubed after each trip and stripped once it stopped working but I could not get it to work. It now sits unused in my tackle draw. Surprising given the cost of the reel and the rep of Abu Garcia reels.
Pros:Very Light - Nice smooth retrieve. Setting the right brakes took a lot of trial and error and lots of overwinds.
Cons:Very unreliable - Broke after 8 hrs of fishing.
