Not many reviews, but every one I read gave the reel high marks.  I hate passing up such a deal, but I think I need to sell a few reels before buying another.  Thanks for posting.  I'm sure a few will take advantage of an opportunity like this.

good reel, not sure it's worth the price tag, but for the discounted price bps was running. good deal. I had one and sold it because I was given an offer I couldn't refuse. I ended up buying two this morning at the sale. Probably sell one for a decent profit and keep one. When I had one, I didn't notice it outperformed a lot of my other reels that were a bit cheaper. My Gen 2 Premier is a better reel IMHO. The one thing it did better than any other reel I owned was throw light baits better. I could flip a tube with a 1/16oz weight no problem. Some of my other reels tend to struggle sometime throwing that small of a bait, except my ***. It is very very very light and fits into my palm perfectly. I have small hands so the Revo line just fits me better than a Curado for instance. For the price, you will not be dissapointed and will not regret the purchase. I would never pay full price for one ever again though. Full price, it gets in Metanium territory and it is nowhere near the reel of a Metanium. good luck and have fun with it.

Not that I need another reel, I let the Tackle Money coerce me into buying a 7.9:1 today. Can't say I'll get to use it until next season, but It'll be in the garage waiting for me.

This reel is really good for light baits: weightless baits, shakey heads, and light t-rigs. It still is good for heavier baits, but it doesn't cast them nearly as far as an STX with all brakes off.

Out of all my reels that I own, my mgx is my absolute favorite. I love everything about it, casting, drag, feel, weight, just everything. I have fished it hard that past couple years and still looks new, still feels and functions as new. I can cast anything on it, weightless to some beefy plugs. You will understand once you start getting use out of them.
