Wow what can i say? If this reel was in a old western movie,it would be considered a gun slinger , its the quickest on the draw, cast out, flip or pitch and this reel gets the bait right back to you to do it again in an heart beat. If your into power fishing, this is the reel for you. Oh yeah it's also light weight so you won't get tired from casting and catching all day. Speed,power,light weight,cast ability ,color, comfort,quality, what else can you ask for , fastest in the west,east, north or south
I would recommend this to a friend!

Let me start by saying that this is a very fast reel and I use it in a medium sized stream where you can catch any thing from little 12 inch smallmouth to 6 pound bruits and 45 inch muskie to 30 inch wallie and I can tell you that this reel handles all of theis fish very well. I put this reel on a 6 ft 10 fenwick elet tech smallmouth rod and I can cast lures down to 1/8 ounce with ease. This is also a great reel to throw buzbaits with and you don't have to reel like a mad man to keep it on top of the water. I have also managed to land a 45 inch muskie on it while fishing an x-rap and the drag held up very well during the fight and was surprisingly smooth. The only compliant that I have is their is no lube port but it is still easy to clean by just taking the sideplate off just be sure not
to lose any off the mechanical break parts as they can be a
pain in the butt to get back in. The reels break also has endless adjustments to it and is very easy to dial in good. I also own a revolt sd and this reel is a lot better than it.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Needs to be tougher

I recently bought the Revo Rocket and planned on using it for flipping. I live in Florida and flip 365 days a year. This reel has the fastest gear ratio in the world and is ideal for flipping. After using the reel for a couple months I noticed that the handle was getting a little shaky. I kept using the reel and the handle got worse. Eventually I took the handle off and found that the carbon fiber had weakened and stripped. I sent the reel handle to Abu Garcia and am still waiting to get a new handle back. If the reel handle were tougher I would say it is the best flipping reel out there. Just needs to be tougher.

This reel is called the rocket for a reason. You finally don't have to crank your reel like a mad man to get a buzz bait or rattletrap type bait to run like their supposed to with so little effort. Also covered alot more water in seaching for bass before tournaments, by working the target area. Then getting the bait back in to cast again to the next target. J2B

Sleek, smooth and cast like a dream. Imagine hooking a 4 lb. Large Mouth Bass and reeling him in. That's what happened to me on my second cast with this reel. This reel brought him to the boat so fast, that I could not believe it. I had my big bass in the boat in no time. I bought the reel for pitching and jigging, but I was not in an area to pitch or jig. I was in open water. I wanted to try this new reel so bad, that I tied on one of my jerk baits and did some minor adjustments to the reel to match my bait and I cast. I could not believe how far it went and then on my second cast, to my surprise a bass hit it and with little ease, I reeled him in. The gear ratio of 9.0:1 is super fast and the fastest of any reel that I know of on the market today. I own seven other Abu Garcia reels and I think this one is my new champion. Thank you Abu Garcia, keep up the great work. If you’re looking for a new reel, take a good look at this one.

I just received the Revo Rocket, but cannot get the side plate off. Is there a trick to it? The securing bolt loosens ok, but the unit seems seized.
