New Ultra Long-Casting Revo EXD


Some extra distance on a cast can put a bait that much further from the fish-spooking boat, get a lure to run a bit deeper or give a bait a touch more time in the strike zone. The new Abu Garcia Revo EXD reel delivers these benefits in spades as it promises supreme casting distances thanks to a bevy of special design features.

Designed to provide anglers with maximum casting capabilities with any bait in their arsenal, the Abu Garcia Revo EXD Baitcasting Reels deliver unmatched casting distance. The EXD has a total of eleven high-performance bearings, including two custom EXD bearings on the spool shaft, along with an extremely lightweight machined EXD finesse spool providing low start up inertia making it easier to cast lighter weight baits.

“Recently, we have developed a number of technologies that aid in casting distance,” said Abu Garcia Global Brand Director, Andrew Wheeler. “We have engineered a way to bring them all together in the Revo EXD, maximizing the value of each technology and giving anglers the longest-casting reel we’ve ever built.”

The Revo EXD is available in both right- and left-hand models and comes in 5.4:1, 8.0:1 gear ratios.

Additional features include:

• 2 Custom EXD Bearings on Spool Shaft

• 8 stainless steel HPCR™ bearings + 1 roller bearing

• X-Craftic alloy frame

• C6 Carbon Sideplates

• Power Stack Carbon Matrix Drag System

• D2 Gear Design

• Duragear brass gear

• DuraClutch Design

• Infini II spool

• Ti coated line guide

All versions of the Abu Garcia Revo EXD retail for $299.95
