Abu Garcia's Revo Premier unveiled


Graphite light but with the strength of an all metal body, the new Revo® Premier spinning reel from Abu Garcia® is leaving the competition in its wake


Abu Garcia is well-known for high-end fishing rods and reels and the new Revo Premier is a great addition to that line.

NanoShield™ technology is pioneering unmatched material’s properties for optimum reel performance by creating components that are up to 50% lighter than aluminum and up to 300% stronger than graphite.

Taken from the science and metallurgy of the nuclear power industry, NanoShield plating provides unmatched strength.

The process creates a more complete and consistent plating making the spool and stem on the Revo Premier extremely rigid.

The result, a lightweight spinning reel with heavy weight performance that eliminates torque of the reel stem when fighting an oversized fish. The NanoShield finish is resistant to corrosion, abrasion and cracking.

The reel has features that truly earn its place in the Revo family. 11 HPCR® (High Performance Corrosion Resistant) stainless steel bearings create not only an extremely smooth operation but add to the life of the reel.

Stainless steel mainshaft and hardware, sealed Carbon Matrix™ Drag with 12-pound maximum setting and one-piece aluminum gear box strengthens gear alignment. The one-two punch of Everlast™ Bail System and Slow Oscillation create a smooth and reliable line retrieve operation.

Two models are offered. The PRM20 weighs 7.9 ounces, has a gear ratio of 5.1:1 spooling 27 inches of line per turn of the handle with a spool capacity of 130 yards of 8-pound test monofilament or 190 yards of 8-pound test Fireline®.

Model PRM30 weighs 8.1 ounces, has a gear ratio of 5.8:1 spooling 33 inches of line per handle turn with a spool capacity of 140 yards of 10-pound test mono and 180 yards of 10-pound Fireline.

The Revo Premier spinning reel can be configured for right- or left-hand retrieve. The MSRP is $249.95.
