A friend of mine let me use one of these reels and it didn't take me long to figure out that I was in need of an update to my gear. I purchased a couple of these reels and was in business the only problem was once you use these reels your not going to use your old favorites.these reels are so light and smooth it isn't a workout to tourney fish anymore. These reels allow you to stay in touch with your baits witch in turn puts more fish in the boat. All I can say is less fatigue more fish in the ... boat. Thanks for keeping me in the game.
I purchased 2 of these a couple of weeks ago. I almost fish exclusively with STX reels. I love the quality you get for the price paid! You can't go wrong with the Revo STX!
Fishing in saltwater. Handles big redfish with ease. Very happy with this reel. Cast a mile.
this reel is honestly a great buy its my favorite reel that i have right now along with the abu garcia veritas 2.0, great combo.
I have had a few promax baitcasters for a couple years and have been very happy with them. I came across the chance to buy one of these for a great deal so I jumped at the chance. The alloy frame and smooth bearings give this revo a great, quality feel. It casts great and is very smooth and strong. The 20lb drag is a bonus. A lot of more expensive reels don't have a drag that strong. I've owned it for a couple weeks and have fished with it 6 times. So far I really like it a lot.
These reels are smooth casting and easily adjusted. The new cast controls on the Gen 3 reels makes these the easiest reels to fine tune without magnetic cast controls.
The only praise I need to write is this... I have a 2500 from the first year the BATTLE was introduced. I have done absolutely nothing to it and it still fishes like a dream. And I'm not a recreational fisherman. I fish 200 days a year professionally for smallmouth in a fast moving river from a canoe. My gear takes serious punishment. I NEVER worry about function from the Battles on my boat..
Been using Shimano for 30yrs and not happy with quality anymore. Bought this Penn a year ago.What took me so long? So smooth and still performs like new.Going to buy a twin soon!
I bought my first abu garcia 9 years ago and it still is going strong. It has everything I look for in a reel a good drag a bait alert left handed and reliable. Could not want a better product for the price
I bought the left hand version #5601, since I'm right-handed, so I can simply cast with My right, as I would with a spinning rod/reel, and use My left hand for the retrieve. It's tough to find a high quality casting reel offering a left handed version, and ABU takes top honors with their superb round casting reels with left or right handed options. I've owned a few ABU reels prior to the recent purchase of My 5601, and one of those I bought during Summer of 1973. Availability of simple repair ... parts has kept all of My ABU reels in service to this day, though I only fish occasionally anymore, due to My advancing age. Many Thanks to ABU for crafting such fine and long-lasting fishing reels! ~DLK~
This reel out performs many higher end reels that are much more expensive. It has plenty of torque, it casts like a dream, and the bent handles provide maximum comfort. The reel is incredible, but the only complaint that I have (and the reason that I gave it 4 stars rather than 5) is that it isn't available in higher gear ratios. A 5.4:1 may be great to some people, but it is a little too slow for me, even with cranking. My advice is that if you know that you are comfortable with a 5.4:1, ... definitely purchase this reel as it is fantastic in every other aspect. However, if you are used to fishing reels in the 6-7 gear ratio range, be prepared for a much slower retrieval. I wish Abu would make them in higher gear ratios. If they had this same reel available in a 6.4:1 or a 7.1:1, I would buy several more of them.
WOW!! I have just started to use Abu rods and reels, I started off with a Black Max to learn how to use a bait caster, and I have just recently purchased two of these amazing Orra Sx reels, ( I actually bought the Orra Combo.) I can not believe how great these reels perform. Casting is smooth as silk,and the retrieve is true and steady. Abu, using your products is the best decision I have made for my fishing needs. Thank You!
Wouldn't go deep dropping without it! It pulls ever thing up no matter how big!
I bought this reel a few weeks ago and love it,no problems whatsoever great drag as well.
I've been fishing Daiwa since the TD-X came out in the mid 2000's and I felt it was time to update my reels and after doing some intensive research I bought two Tatula HS, one Tatula CT, and a JDM RYOGA. The RYOGA is a $500 reel, but I feel that the Tatula is just as smooth and of the highest quality. You will never regret the purphase.
Great product. Casts a mile virtually no backlash. Very good durability.
This reel (ZO3 Pro), it's little sister the ZO2 Pro and it's big brother the Zebco Bullet are the best reels I've ever used. Granted I'm a spincast guy (so sue me), but I'm catching great bass, catfish, crappie and sunfish with these reels. They cast far, retrieve fast (esp the bullet) and I never have to worry about backlash or bird's nests. Very pleased! And these are so well built they might last a lifetime! Only small drawbacks are that they're a little heavy and they should come with better line.
These Omega Reels are the REEL DEAL! I have used them from red fish to speckled trout, to flounder. The reels are smooth and when I fish i put them through INSANE abuse and they just keep ticking along. This is one on the only closed reels I have ever owned that I feel comfortable taking into saltwater. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
Very Smooth operation and works just as great as higher-priced competitors. I would recommend this to anyone!
I have been fishing this reel for over a year and have not had one single issue with it. I have more expensive reels and less expensive reels but this one is by far my favorite.
Shimano makes the best reels. Caught my 78" tarpon with this reel. The drag is so smooth and powerful. You could never go wrong with this reel.
have owned several of these with some of them being 6 years old and have caught hundreds of fish on them and by far hands down the calcutta is the best fishing reel EVER made
This reel is awesome, cast great,and very well made .
Purchased several weeks ago and glad I did. I have purchased an arsenal of bait casters (28) since I returned to fishing in the past five years, all in the mid range price catagory and this one tops them all. Easiest to set up and the absolute best caster of all. I have not had one over-run, even casting into the wind. It is very smooth and quite. This is the first bait casting reel I have that I was able to cast 1/8 oz lures a great distance, unbelievable. This is a great reel, you need to ... purchase this one and experience the difference. OBTW, this is my 8th Lew's and they are all good.
I love this reel plan on getting some more of them.
KEEP THEM THIS TIME......PLEASE. YES, THIS IS JUST THE OLE ARSENAL ARG15. THAT WENT AWAY AND THEN REELS TOO BIG CAME INTO PLAY, LIKE THOSE HUGE TIDEWATERS. TRY KEEPING A REEL STYLE AND SIZE FOR AWHILE, WILL YA???? THESE ARE EZ TO USE, THE RIGHT SIZE, SPOOLED W/ BRAID, IF YOU'RE CATCHING A FISH THAT BURNS OFF 350 YARDS OF 40 POUND BRAID........YOU NEED A DIFFERENT REEL ANYHOW!!!!!!!!!!! I USE THESE FOR REDFISH AND SPECKLED TROUT FOR MY CHARTER CUSTOMERS, THEY ARE AFFORDABLE AND NON-CORROSIVE, ... WHEN USED DAY AFTER DAY. STICK WITH THIS REEL, DONT DISCONTINUE THEM IN A YEAR. MATCHED WITH A NEW AND IMPROVED UGLY STIK STRIPER OR CATFISH ROD. YOU HAVE A WINNING COMBO.
I bought this reel with no real expectations of greatness. I was wrong. I would say it's a great reel for the money but it's really a great reel regardless of price. It has a drag you'd never expect at this price. I'll be buying many more.
I use it like a Crappie Reel. Flawless preferences. Weights heaver but can be handled. I like it, cheap and well made. It helped me catch these! See ya in the Creeks!
I needed another reel and the specs on this one look good, great reel to use.
This reel has done wonders for me I bought it and have hauled some huge fish with it it's a work horse I highly recommend it!
Casts light lures very well which is a quality that's hard to find. Superb ergonomics and cast quality. Magnetic brakes are nice and strong and have a very linear adjustable range from weakest to strongest. May be the best sub $100 BC reel out there.
