Round Reel Toughness, Power, and Capacity in the Low Profile
Abu Garcia Revo Toro (continued)
Price and Application:
The Toro's smaller sibling, the Revo Inshore sells for about $229.95. Moving up to the
Toro 50 you can expect to shell out $269.99. For the difference you get a
new muscle reel that'll easily handle big fish thanks to the benefit of a larger gear, increased line capacity, and some other
features that really makes this an all purpose reel for swimbaits, metal jigs,
irons, and more.

has plenty of muscle to easily bring in rockfish like Cabezon
When I reviewed the Revo Inshore the only thing
lacking was the line capacity, and Abu Garcia answered that in less than one
year with the introduction of the Toro. The Revo Toro is very comparable in size to the
Shimano Curado 300E but the Toro has a higher line capacity, 14/200 compared to
Curado 300E's 14/190. Now we are really talking about round reel line capacity
but in a low profile reel.
The Revo Toro is a great low profile,
yet high capacity, reel for
freshwater and saltwater anglers
The low profile Toro is a great reel for bass
anglers tossing swimbaits or saltwater anglers fishing inshore, and even finesse offshore applications. Our test reel took on largemouth
bass, stripers, and rockfish from smaller rockcod to large Lingcod and Cabezons.
The reel handled swimbaits, metal jigs, and other big baits like a champ.
Anglers who fish bait will also find this a great
reel. Toss out the bait and let it sit and wait for the alarm to sound from the
reel. The Toro has a line alarm that can be turned on or off. Great for anglers
relaxing on the bank and waiting for the fish to bite.
