TackleTour's 2008 Holiday Gift Guide
Casting Reel: (Abu Garcia Revo Toro) The Toro
reminds us of the HULK, this is exactly what the a standard "human sized" Revo
would look like if it was bombarded with Gamma radiation. At first glance the
Toro seems massive but pick it up and the reel does offer reasonable ergonomics
and a nice alternative from the conventional round reel.
Abu-Garcia's Revo Toro is the HULK
While the Toro may be sleeker than traditional
round reels it offers just as much capacity and stays rigid even in tough
battles thanks to a X-Craftic aluminum alloy. This material is more durable and
lighter than regular aluminum and is highly corrosion resistant.
While good for saltwater fishing
the Toro also makes a great swimbait reel
Seven High Performance Corrosion Resistant HPCR
bearings and Duragear brass gears add to the reel’s durability and long life and
with 24-pounds of maximum drag the Toro can take on all comers. While good for
saltwater fishing the Toro also doubles as an exceptional swimbait reel. The
Abu-Garcia Revo Toro is available at
Monster Tackle for a special limited time special Holiday Price.
