Abu Garcia Revo Ike

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Be awesome if it was an ALX/MGX2 size frame but aluminum and still including the IVCB4 braking system... Would be a nice little reel then if it had the lighter spool. As of now we will not have the bearing support like Daiwa and Shimano have, but maybe they are on the up and up of catching back up. Would love to see 3 super close competitors (performance, I know they all sell similarly) at the top of the $150+ reel class.

It looks to me like it has the frame of the new gen 4 X thru Premier reels.

Might be interesting to pair it up with one of the older Powell Endurance (purple) rods if you're into that kind of stuff.

Looking on facebook it sounds like the reels are going to be lower priced. There are going to be spinning reels also.

I think they look good. Curious on the specs.

My guess is $199 on the casting reel based on the STX frame with a carbon handle and bushings in the knobs to reduce the elusive bearing count.

PLEASE do not put the ALX braking system in that piece. That alone makes the reel drop by $100 as it is the worst braking system I have ever used.
