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 fisherreel.com .


Any recommendation will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

I doubt you are going to be salt water fly fishing with an Abu Garcia Revo...good luck if you do!

The Abu Garcia Revo is a freshwater bait casting reel.

Are you looking for a fly-fishing reel? Or in the wrong sub-forum?

The Shimano Calcutta 100 isn't a fly reel either. Wrong sub forum.

Kathy10 is not Kathy. That name is the name that a BOT uses to suck information out of helpful participants on this web site. I think that this same bot use to be Charles. Search this BOT's post and they are usually posted with a link to sell something.

I'm shocked that you regulars don't recognize this and I'm shocked the board admin doesn't just ban Kathy10.

News flash: Kathy10 use to be Charles and Charles was more translucent in that he said that he was doing marketing research.

I miss when this site use to be more active and actually talked about kayak fishing, but I hate facebook more so I'm still here.

yeah, I figured it might be a bot but in case it wasn't I didn't want to come right out and say it. I usually pass over Kathy10.
