Abu Garcia Promax

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any one has used the Promax and what they think of it.  Its $30 less than the Revo S just how it compare.  Also does anyone know what it weighs I couldn't find it anywhere.

Thanks

I emailed Abu Garcia 15 mins ago asking what the frame was made of and I got a reply already "It's aluminum". That's the fastest reply I've ever received from a company.

It's interesting their web site makes no mention of an aluminum frame which is a key selling point on most reels.......especially those under $100.

I also emailed Abu Garcia about the frame and they first emailed me back and said aluminum then they emailed me back and apologized and said it was graphite.  So the final answer is graphite.  Unless I get another email saying something different.  ;D

Officially, they are "polymeric," which could mean a lot.    Probably a poly/graphite combitnation.

That's not necessarily a bad thing.  The S's brake is apparently more effective than the magnetic brake on other Revos.
