    Looks alot like the Revo series?
    Is there a big difference?

    Yes, mostly great reviews, but would still like to hear fist hand experience from people I "know". I haven't bought a baitcaster in 30 years. I wore two out this Summer....

    I bought an Abu Garcia Torno back in 2003 and still going strong. My Daiwa is a little smoother but twice the price.

    Check out lews, they are bringing some nice stuff to the market for the budget folks.

    I can get these for $50. Marked down. That’s why I’m asking.

    For 50 bucks, great reels but temporary. Imho, look up shimano e series Citicas and buy all you find. Same price range(used) but perform better and will last forever!

    I had quantum pros and pro 2's, and they didn't hold up worth a crap. They were top of the line in mid 80's. Never bought any more after that. I'm replacing two Shimano Coriolis reels. They were great.

    Only had two of the Garcias. Got both of them. One for me and one for dad. Also got me a Lee’s speed spool for $72. This employee discount is gonna be dangerous.

    Ohhh. If you need boots or clothing, Gander has all on sale for 50% off. I got a pair of Muck field boots for $46. 50% off of regular price then $20 off that for getting Gander Visa.

    Both of those reels are sweet, particularly the Lew's. 7.1 and 7.5, and they weigh nothing. Kind of sucked putting them on 1985 Quantum rods.... hmmmmm
