Apparently yet another JDM Revo

Another JDM Revo?

Man, I'm gonna have to got to Japan.

I'd just like to have an interpreter friend around to read that stuff to me. That thing could weigh 12 oz's, have only 3 lbs of drag power and been refurbished and I'd never know it.

Let's see what Google says it says:

Click on Abu Garcia, then Baitcasters, then the Elite Black.  You'll get the translated page.

It's essentially a JDM Revo Premier with a few more bearings and a centrifugal brake.  And meat without limit!

Looks like a Black Max was my first thought, and the second was do I have 38,000 Yen??? :) For all I know that could be half a million dollars. :)

I'm not up to the last minute on the Yen value, but the going rate was about 108 yen to the dollar. So, your looking at about 352 GW's.

Now I see why Abu isn't paying you...yet. :)

I cant get the translated page for some reason?? I hit the Abu Garcia and it brings me to a english page, and once I click baitcasters I get Google error saying  "Translation from English into English is not supported.

Current exchang rate from Yen to dollar is 106.541, so it would be about $356.00 plus another $20.00 to get it here. Beauty is costly. 8-)

It is gonna weigh around 7 oz. I would stick with the Premier and put a carbon handle and cork grips on it and you'll be pushing the 5.8 - 6.0 oz. mark. That's pretty light! 8-)

A Bassart with aluminum knobs would be sweet though.  Just a little heavier.

I just do a lot of reading on Japanese websites. Google translator and Babel fish translator are my friends. 8-)

Just got a mad craving for JDM tackle.   :)   You'd be surprised at what I go through trying to read some of those sites.  The thirst never ends... :-[
