Best reel on the market for large crankbaits
I fish DD22s a lot and this reel is perfect. No fatigue after a long day of fishing.

Abu Garcia Revo Winch Generation 3 Baitcasting Reel
I own 7 Revos from SX to STX models. The Winch is one awesome reel. I use it to through everything from 1/4oz squarebills to 1oz deep diving DD22s. Currently teamed with a St. Croix 7'0" MHM Avid crankbait rod with Sunline #12 fluorocarbon. My casting distance with crankbaits improved drastically after I started using this reel. I will be buying another one soon.
ProsSmooth, powerful, unbelievable casting distances. The handle is very comfortable and adds to the overall superb feel of the Winch.

Bought this reel to use to fish my local harbors for Calico bass and the occasional Barracuda, Halibut, and sand bass that we get here in the Los Angeles and Orange county bays. The low gear ratio allows this reel to live up to its winch name. I am able to pull the fish away from the rocks and into the net quickly.

An Awesome Reel!
This is one durable reel. It's small and is easily and comfortably palmed. It has a smooth cast. It holds a lot of line. I use 50# Super 8 Slick Power Pro and St Croix Carolina Rig fishing rod. This rod, reel, and line combination is a great set up. I fish for catfish and this reel has no problems reeling in those cats. My biggest catfish on this set up is 8lbs. I don't target the monster fish, but I have no doubt that this reel could handle it. I have two of these reels, rods as well, and am about to go buy a third one. I highly recommend the Abu Garcia Revo3 Winch.
ProsLight weight, holds lots of line, durable, smooth.

Just bought this reel, can you suggest a good rod to pair this with? I was looking at the St. Croix Triumph Musky Rod, maybe something in the 1/2 - 2.5oz lure weight?
That might be a bit heavy for that size reel. The St Croix Premier Crankbait rods would make a good match with the Abu Garcia Revo Winch Generation 3 Baitcasting Reel.
