  • Conventional Reels

    Conventional reels serve many purposes. Bait casters are used by many fishermen to present baits accurately to fis. Newer baitcasters have adjustments that can reduce backlashes, which is the major drawback of bait casters,. They are very useful in a technique used by bass fishermen called flipping. Spinning reels are not well adapted to this technique.

    Trolling reels are generally of the conventional type. Spinning reels can be used but conventional reels seem to work best. I prefer lever drags for trolling because it is easy to set maximum drag and maintain the setting.

    Jigging is also an area that conventional reels hold first place in. It is the constant dropping down and reeling up that causes the limitation of spinning reels.

    Abu Revo MGXtreme  Is an extremely light, low profile baitcaster. It has a super lightweight spool with ceramic bearings. The alloy frame and carbon C6 side plates also reduce weight.The Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Brake (IVCB-4™) and Carbon Matrix™ star drag systems used on the MGXtreme are rigorously tested for maximum performance.
