the Abu Garcia Revo Inshore
Like the freshwater Revo, Abu Garcia’s Revo Inshore is a stunning reel, one that
just a few seasons ago anglers would have never expected from a company best
known for their traditional round reels. The
sleek profile of this reel is the same as the freshwater series but a metallic blue deep spool
has been added for inshore applications.

components such as an X-craftic alloy frame and sideplate, stainless steel HPCR

comes with two handles. Pictured above is the Power Handle
Abu Garcia really wanted
to satisfy all inshore anglers with this new introduction as is evidenced by the
inclusion of two handles. One is the standard Extended Throw handle with double
knobs good for freshwater applications. The other is a Power Handle having a single large knob for an easy and
powerful grip for applications requiring more leverage. With these two handle options, anglers can use either to battle
their favorite inshore game.

The Abu Garcia Revo Inshore was designed for inshore anglers especially for the

STX and Inshore being used to target and land large sailfish.

the Revo Inshore performed against these monsters
Our adventures were not
quite as exotic, but we were able to put this Abu Garcia reel up against the
striped bass population of the California Delta and along the Pacific coast for rockcod and large, mean lingcod, a mixture of
formidable hitting and hard pulling fish with
the added abuse of a corrosive environment.
