Revo Winch.

Recommended Posts

Alright so thinking of buying one of these as my crankbait reel. Seems like a good reel, I just have a few questions.

What kind of braking does it have?

Also I see it comes with free wiley x sunglasses, which sell for $130, you think it would be reasonable to buy the reel, get the sunglasses and then sell them for ~$100?

Sounds like a good idea to me, But will people buy them? If they don't I will be out of alot of money, I searched on ebay and didnt see any other than from stores.

Thanks

I just bought one this year.  It's paired up with a St. Croix Legend Bass big cranker rod.  I just used it for the 1st time over the weekend.  Very sweek set up.  I can't wait to actually catch something on it.  I never mess with the braking on my reels.  It seemed to cast very well right out of the box.  I was throwing a Bomber Switchback crankbait.  I'm not sure how it will be with lighter cranks but then again, I probably won't be throwing anything less than 3/8 oz with this set up.

how will you be out any money? if you get a free pair of sunglasses with the reel and sell them for 100 that's 100 profit if you cant sell them you not out anything, you just have a nice pair of sunglasses for yourself.

That's exactly my opinion.  I love the reel, but with anything less than 3/8, I pick up another stick.  I use mine on my deep cranking rod, so its not really an issue.

It's a great reel.  It really excels with heavier baits - 1/2oz and up.  Below that and there are better options.
