The New Revo Toro

Recommended Posts

SHWEET! Finally a cool looking American-market reel that isn't a Daiwa. I will add one of these to the collection ASAP.

Revo Toro

Notice the marking says "Toro HS."  "High Speed."  Now look closely at the drag - "6.?:?"  That's where the Revo has the gear ratio emblazoned.  It also has a high-capacity spool.  So, does this mean there's a cranking-speed version, too??????  

The body design is a little different, too.  What are those ribs on the gear housing??  Wonder if the overall size is a little different.

And a new Cardinal, too...

Not a clue.

About the gear ratio on the handle seat....when BPS put up the first pics of the Revo S models, they had 7.1:1 on them. It was strange because they didn't sell a HS S model.

This looks to be a slight play on the KVD and Code reels that just came out this year.

To me, the ear housing looks a lot beefier than the current Revo.  Also I notice the name: "Toro 50."  I wonder what the 50 means.  I wonder if there is a yet a bigger or wider model in the works.  (The mind boggles  :D)

When I saw it, the first thing I though was "Zillion."

It looks beautiful!  I wonder if anyone complained about the plain look on the older revo series?  lol  I hope it performs just as well, and doesn't cost a fortune!  If it's above 130 dollars, then I won't be getting it...  Cheap old bass pro shops reels for me, in that case... lol

My guess is the 50 denotes size, like on the Record 50.  Think they'll have a 40 and a 60?

And I don't see the similarities between the Soron and the Flooger...

To me this reel looks like it's going to be a step up from the Revo line in performance and price. If the naming 'Toro' means this real is going to be a bull then this reel should be able to handle some pretty hefty tasks. Judging from the gold plating on the tension knob, line guide and other "ugraded" styling I'd go out on a limb and guess this reel to cost more than an STX.

I really don't see ABU adding another line of reels in the $100 - $200 range when they've already got the revo line.

The really look nice though. I'm going to have a hard time not pulling the trigger on this one whatever the price (within a reasonable limit).

Just as I was ready to pull the trigger on a Morrum they have to come out with this.  ::D:)

I like the spinning reel, they need to get going on their spinning reel line.

I have two of the EXT Pros.  They are Morrum'ish.  Extremely nice reels and they will cast a light bait with ease.   I highly recommend the EXT Pro.

Those look pretty nice. I guess they'd be easier to get serviced than a Morrum. Thanks for the tip.

Back on topic I'm in agreement with Tin about the spinning reels. I'd really like to see some better spinning reels from Abu that don't cost an arm and a leg. I really like the look of the new one here just hope it doesn't cost a lot.

I suspect it's going to cost more than the Cardinal 800s.

Yeah I'm afraid you might be right. Just wishful thinking on my part.   8-)

I saw on another site that the name "Toro" might actually be "Torq" but the q got cut off a little.  Who knows.  It still looks cool!

I won't be buying one from that site though. I checked out the other reels that they sell and they are way over priced. But that new Revo is going to look nice on a couple of my Dobyns Rods.  :D

There it is - brutha! I knew a cranking Revo had to be coming - the rumors were correct. Good looking reel, too.
