I ended up buying both. The Revo Rocket is my new favorite reel. I didn't realize how much of a different the gears would make. I pulled a 5lbs bass out of the flooded timber with no issues. He didn't even have a chance to shake his head. I only caught one small bass with the beast so I'll have to get a few more trips in with it to decide how I feel about it.
