dont waste your money on the abu reels. especially the black max. i would get the lews american hero instead. they come in different gear ratios, so whatever application you need it for you can get it. 49.99 and they blow the black max out of the water. my girlfriend uses one and it has literally outlasted my revo sx that was purchased at the same time. every revo i have had lasts no longer than a year before a part breaks or mechanism quits working. Lews all the way.
That's interesting, I have 10 revos and 1 lews. Most of my revos are 5-6 years old, have never been disassembled or oiled and cast a mile.
I won the lews speed spool in a tournament last year and in less than a year the worm gear is about worn out and occasionally the gears seem to just lock up on me, almost always when I have a fish on.
