Yak Angler's Favorite  Fishing Reel - Abu Garcia Revo SX & STX Series


The new low-profile baitcast reels that have started a REVOlution among serious anglers everywhere. These are the reels that are getting all of the "Buzz", and have anglers across the country replacing their beloved Chronarchs and Curados with their new "favorite" fishing reel, the Revo®. Why you ask? Anglers will tell you that they are more comfortable in your hand (lower profile), every bit as smooth, have more fish fighting power due to the oversized main drive gear, hold more line, hold up outstandingly in both fresh or salt water, are far less expensive, and most of the Revo® family includes a 24 lb. drag system that is 2 to 3 times more powerful than any other reel in their class. All Revo®s are made from X-Craftic™ aluminum alloy that provides corrosion resistance unsurpassed in the fishing reel industry. Oh, and did I mention that the Revo®s are far less expensive? Don't take our word for it. Get yourself a Revo® and join the REVOlution. You too will claim it as your own "favorite" fishing reel.

The new Revo® series of low-profile baitcast reels are the finest and fastest low-profile reels that Abu Garcia® has ever designed. Heck, these are the finest low profile reels ever designed, PERIOD!

The low profile frame and side plate of the SX and STX is made of X-Cräftic™ aluminum alloy. This material is more durable and lighter than regular aluminum and corrosion resistant. Eleven High Performance Corrosion Resistant (HPCR®) bearings provide the smooth casting with added distance. All SX reels weigh just 8.7 ounces, the STX models weigh 8.75 ounces. Both the SX and STX reels hold 140 yards of 12-pound test monofilament fishing line. More than any others in their class. The SX and STX series are available in two speeds, a 6.4:1 version, or a 7.1:1model and are now available in both right and left-hand models. The high speed 7.1:1 SX and STX reels will sure help anglers with their pitching and flipping presentations as well as burning baits over grass. The Swedish engineered Revo also features Linear Magnetic™ brakes, Duragear™ brass gears and synchronized level wind. The STX models include an Infini II™ Spool design for the smoothest of operations, titanium nitride wormshaft and Everslik™ coated pinion shaft and pawl. Salt or fresh, like all Abu Garcia® reels, they are "Built for Life".


Yak Angler's Favorite Rod Holder - Ram Rod Revolution Rod Holder

Unlike anything you've seen before, and performance beyond your expectations describes another great product for "Pros and Joes" alike. Integrating two sought after features into a single system makes this new Rod Holder versatile to the extreme. Offering not only the patented RAM Rubber Ball and Socket Feature, but a ratcheting feature as well, there is literally no limit to where this holder can be put or how it can be fished. With RAM, you're never limited by your mounting equipment. No matter whether you're on the water to lose stress, or gain tournament dollars, RAM Rod Holders only add to your success.
