Abu Garcia Revo S Baitcasters?

Recommended Posts

Are these good reels for someone who is on a budget and just getting started in low profile baitcasters and bass fishing?

If your set on buying one make sure to check out the auction sites. They can be had under $100 if you look around. As always its a good idea to handle one in person before buying to make sure its a good its comfortable.

Maybe Falcon?  Tough to find a USA rod that's not going to be significantly more $ than the reel...

First welcome to the forum.  A rod 6'6" to 7' MF or MHF is a very good place to start for an all-around rod. I am a fan of Fenwick rods.  The HMG 7' MF is actually in the weight range for quite a few of my MHF rods at 1/4-3/4 oz.  It retails for $99.99.  I have never used an H2O rod, but they get good reviews.  I've read good things about the $79.99 Berkley E-Motions.  They have a 6'9" MF and 7' MHF that should work fine.

For less money, the Berkley Lightning and Lightning Shock are excellent rods for the moolah.  Personally prefer the Lightning over the Shock.

I have no idea where these rods are made.  Going to be a little hard to find an American made rod for less than $100...I think.  No idea where the Falcon Originals are made, but they are another decent possibility.  My personal best largemouth was caught on a 7' MH Original.

Never tried a revo s but I have a couple revo sx's and i love them. Can't be much different between the two. The Abu Garcia vendetta rod is nice also at $79.

14-1 Fishing rods are a great option i believe, based on the reviews. Also, check out some of the rods on sale at TW.

The Revo S is definitely a good choice. Check on Amazon, I got mine for a little under $90. Also if you are looking for a good all purpose, made in the USA rod, I would recommend a falcon Bucoo 7' MH. I think those run around $100-110. They basically made this rod to be an all purpose rod, which was exactly why I got mine. Can't go wrong with either

The revo line is good quality and the centrifugal brakes of the S model are user friendly. A good choice to learn on.

I have two of the S models.  Very good reels.

At one time the entire Revo line was one of the most talked about on here for a long time because they were, and still are, good reliable reels. I have an S and use it often. 

Good reel

I have there Abu Garcia 6500C3 that I use for catfishing so I know the Revo S should be just as good!

If you like Abu products, keep an eye on their website. They have really good sales from time to time. I picked up a ProMax combo around Thanksgiving for $50. It's one of their less expensive models (just below Revo) but $50 for a good reel and a MH 7' rod, including shipping is a really good find these days.

I have 2 of the Revo S reels and have had no issues with them. I have both paired with the Abu Veritas rods

Guess it too late to say that st.croix premiers are made in the U.S.

Looks like a good combo to me.
