Revo Premier

Recommended Posts

I've been intrigued by the Revo Premier but never jumped on a purchase, now I'm seeing them on several "for sale" boards.  From those that have fished them, which version of the Premier do you consider the best (why, if you have a reason).  What are the differences in braking systems between versions?  Thanks for the primer...

Gen 2.  Better drag (I think) and dual braking.  Have only used a Gen 1.  When the Gen 2 came out many considered it the best reel anywhere near its price.  Gen 1 is magnetic brake only.  I'm quite sure Gen 3 continued with dual brakes.  Very versatile reel.

 

EDIT:  Not necessarily a better drag, but a stronger one.

Gen3 switched to IVCB braking, same as the MGX.

Gen 2 Premier is my favorite,  I fish several of them, if you can find them for around 125 that are not all rashed out, they are a steal.
