Sneak Peek of a 5.4oz Reel
Abu Garcia recently released a video of Mike Iaconelli talking about a new Abu Garia Revo MGX reel that weighs an amazingly low 5.4 ounces. He lifts the reel up in the video for a second and then quickly pushes it back down out of frame. He does, however leave it up for long enough to note the similarities between this reel and the newly released Revo MGX in Japan.
The Japanese version of the MGX is available in a 7.1:1 gear ratios, as well as a blazing fast 7.9:1 gear ratio. There is no word yet on which ratios will be available in North America, or if there are any differences from the version available in Japan.
The Revo MGX will be revealed this July at ICAST. WFN will be on hand at ICAST to get more information about this reel and all the other new gear.
