Built for reliability and performance, the Revo® Toro® S low profile baitcaster has been constructed to handle a wide variety of freshwater fishing or saltwater fishing conditions. The new ergonomic design delivers high line capacity, high max drag and the ability to fish larger baits. A heavy duty gear system coupled with features like a counter balanced power handle and a robust, externally adjustable magnetic casting brake make this fishing reel the perfect choice for hard fighting species.
I bought this reel for Tog fishing. It did not disappoint me. With its low profile it is very comfortable to hold . The drag is a bear , able to pull these bruisers out of their lair . It’s line capacity is more than adequate. The casting ability is there . I mounted it on a St Croix med-heavy rod and crank them out of the stickiest structure. Can’t say enough good things about this reels abilities.
My first Revo Toro S size 60 reel works so well I decided to get another and pair it up with a new muskie crank bait rod. The Revo Toro S is a good "all around" gear ratio of 5.3:1 bringing in 29" of line per reel handle turn. Very smooth and effortless on size 8 bladed muskie bucks and shallow to medium running crank baits too. The drag has a 25 lb maximum. It comes with the power handle. There are some good deals available on new original Toro S models. Perhaps it is being phased out as I notice Abu has a new generation of the sister Revo Toro Beast models at a lower retail price than the original models. In any event, when I saw an original, new Revo Toro S available for 50% of its original retail price from the distributor....I couldn't walk away from that value and quality!
Very well designed, easy to use. I love the handle. I have large hands, and this thing is very nice to manage for me. The drag, break and tension are all very easy to configure. Very sturdy construction. A am new to Abu Garcia, and now definitely newly loyal customer.
I bought this reel about a year ago after my then musky reel (Daiwa broke. For a reel under 300.00 this is such a nice package. The brake is very good with a sensitive secondary adjuster. It will take 150 yards of 80 lb Sufix 832. Musky guys do not need to carry that much line but if there is the room on the spool go for it. The thumb release has a very solid satisfying click when depressed. It spools back up nice and even. So after a year I bought another for my secondary set-up for casting. I have tried a friends Revo Toro Beast and even though that reel is a bit smoother and has a bit better brake system on it I don't think the Beast is worth the extra 150.00. (It is a nice reel though).
Went to Bass Pro to buy the Revo toro 60 model for catfish and striper fishing. I like the size and feel of the reel very much, but without a line out alarm this reel is almost useless for what I need. Not to have at least one model with a clicker is very poor marketing and not smart. I did not buy the reel.
I have had my reel for over 2 years and and is as smooth casting from the day!! I have had no problems with my reel!! I also own four more bait casters and four spinning reels and two ambassador and are far the best reels that I have ever owned! Thanks for sucks a great product!!
Own a few older models and now have 2 new models and I would have to say I do like them better. They are lighter and feel better in your hand when fishing 8hrs straight! Overall i would highly recommened anyone looking for a reel on a budget and even to anyone looking to get their first baitcaster!
i pre-ordered this reel and i got it the second week of september. this reel is amazing. i spooled it with 30lb braid over 200yds easily. everything was smooth. super light weight. it doesnt have a clicker for those who are use to having clickers on their reels. the levelwind doesnt move when you cast but i was still casting 1/4 oz really far. the drag on this is incredible.im really impressed with this reel. i paired this reel with VERITAS TORO CASTING ROD and im happy with my set-up. this is my first abu garcia reel and it wont be my last. abu garcia reels and rods are really well design. thanks abu garcia for making an awesome product.
