I'm thinking about purchasing a new reel for saltwater use. I basically fish inshore for Redfish, Speckled Trout & Stripers. I am presently using Shimano Calcutta 100 reel.I have read a lot about the Abu Garcia Revo and some others. Would like to get some opinions on how these reels hold up in saltwater as well as their appearance.
I searched many websites and here is some good review of Fishing reel . Any recommendation will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I'm afraid, I can't help you: still happy with my lucky couple Luna 253 + Cabo 40.
Tried my friend's Revo couple times. Interesting, but not mine.
From your site, I'm intrigued with author's high evaluation of BG (Shimano and Okuma reels are good, but not new to me). I'll be back to BG in some future, because my newest Cabo 50 is still not really used: old 40 is working so good, I still feel happy every time I use it smile
Good luck looking, finding what will make you happy!
