The Abu Garica Revo Toro NaCl Low Profile Baitcasting Reel is the future of saltwater fishing. It is the beginning of a new category of reels that bring the low profile form factor to saltwater fishing. They are considered baitcasters but only in form factor. Inside a super lightweight shell lives powerful gearing, a huge drag and the ability to withstand the punishment of the salt.
Manufacturers like Abu Garcia, Daiwa and Shimano are realizing that braid is here to stay. It is. If you like mono, good for you but it is outdated for saltwater fishing. Braid is significantly thinner, stronger and has other advantages that have made monofilment as a main line irrelevant. What these manufacturers clearly realize with the release of the Revo Toro NaCl, Daiwa Lexa, and Shimano Tranx saltwater bait casting reels is that fishermen like you and me want lighter tackle that is stronger, puts out more drag than the previous generation, casts like a dream and won’t be destroyed by the saltwater. Is that too much to ask? Apparently not.
The Revo Toro NaCl is a combination of all these things. It features a super strong, super lightweight body and sideplates, great gearing, a sealed centrifugal brake for making awesome casts, a drag system that puts out 22 lbs of drag at max, and six high performance corrosion resistant bearings for smoothness and protection from the elements. Did I mention that the Revo Toro NaCl comes with two handles? A double EVA paddle handle and an oversized EVA power handle. The handle is not an option. Two handles actually come in the box! All this plus it holds 250 yards of 30 lb braid (50 size) or 330 yards of 30 lb braid (60 size) and weighs in at only 11 ozs! Throw the NaCl on any number of modern rods and you could fish for big saltwater species all day with a combo that weighs less than 25 ozs total!
So trade in, give away, or cast aside your old round saltwater reel. The future of saltwater fishing is dawning and it is in the form of a low profile bait casting reel. There are several models to choose from. The Abu Garica Revo Toro NaCl Low Profile Baitcasting Reel would be a good choice.
