Anyone Tried This Reel Before

Recommended Posts

The daiwa revros spinning reel is about $50 with 7 bearings and seems pretty good. It's a bit heavy in weight, 9.3oz. Anyone use them on the water before? Trying to weigh my options.

Thanks!

I own a Revros 2004 ( it´s not a year, it´s the size and spool type ) and it´s an excellent reel, actually it´s one of my favorite spinning reels, I could say I like it better than my Saharas. The Revros is pretty much the JDM version equivalent to the previous generation Daiwa Exceller but with a different spool depth availability.

you'd be better off with a Pflueger President , at about 2 oz. lighter . 9+1 bearings ,  about the same price ...

Well I have the sahara 2500 and I like it so far. The revros seems pretty good. Im looking at one in the 2500 size also.

I also have a pflueger president but the 6920 size, very small I use it for pan fish. I like the president but am looking for a reel to pair with my 7'3 daiwa lexa spinning rod. MH Xtra fast.

The new excelers are nice for the price and can be found in the neighborhood of what you want to spend.

Get a 30 or 35 size reel ..

35 is a bit big. I would get 30 or even 25 if you're a finesse guy. I use a Supreme MGX 25 fine for my unweighted plastics.

Too bad the Revros doesn't have an air bail. One of the best features on a Daiwa spinning reel imo. I'd spend a few dollars more and get an Exceler

I actually use a size 40 Pflueger Patriarch for finesse baits and dropshot , I absolutely love it , a lot less coils in your line and significanttly less line twist .

lol. i gues different men, different tastes. I can't get my hands around 40 reels . Too bulky, and too cumbersome for me.The only thing I use them for is inshore fishing.

Your point is? I'm just saying that 40 spinning reels are a hassle to deal with imho.

I like 35# or 40# size for longer casts bigger spools.

I have a line up of US REEL SUPER CASTERS but I haven't used them enough yet.

With shore fishing the casting distance matters.

Pfleuger reels have smaller spools than shimano/daiwa if you are more used to their sizes, its a good thing to keep in mind when buying. The 25 size pfleuger holds about 100 yds of 4 lb test, while most daiwa/ shimano 2500's hold at least 120 yards of 8 lb. Thats almost twice the spool capacity of the pfleuger. You would have to buy a 35 size pfleuger to get the closest in spool size to the 2500 daiwa. A larger spinning reel spool will give less line management problems and in my experience, much longer casts. The drawback is weight and size of the reel. For an all around reel from shimano/daiwa and most other makers id pick a 2500 or 3000 size for a do it all reel. If i was looking at pfleuger id be looking at the 35 size because of line capacity.

i do prefer medium to smaller sized reels, for bass. 3500 in some brands would be the highest id go, otherwise im a 2500 3000 kinda guy. i dont need a whole lot of line capacity. i put backing on all my spools. i mostly fish from the banks, and dont have any large, deep bodies of water near me. even so, i dont get to go out much as it is.

 

im looking for a reel that ties together good with my daiwa lexa 7'3 mh spinning rod. i always check the choking point on the rod, using the spool axle. sad to say, i traded an unused rod i had for this brand new daiwa revros reel, and no go. not a good setup with my lexa rod. :/

it's not like your palming it , the stem thickness is the same as most any reel wether it be a 1000 size or a 40 size , saying you can't get your hand around it and that it's too bulky don't make sense to me but it's what you want and like ...
