(Apr. 30, 2012 - Columbia, SC)... The evolution of baitcast reels continues. The new Abu Garcia Revo MGX low profile reel raises the bar higher than ever before. The combination of enhanced compact design, a one-piece X-Mag magnesium alloy frame and lighter-than-aluminum C6 carbon sideplates produces the next generation of ultra-lightweight low profile baitcasters. The MGX weighs only 5.4 ounces!

The Revo MGX is more than just a lightweight reel. The Infinitely Variable
Centrifugal Brake system (IVCB-IV) can be adjusted externally without
removing the side plate, as standard centrifugal brakes require anglers to do. The precise brake adjustments allow anglers to easily cast in a wide range of conditions and a wide variety of bait sizes, especially extremely light baits. Other baitcast reels struggle to cast these lightweight baits. The IVCB-IV four brake points are vertically implemented allowing 28 positions of adjustment, compared to centrifugal brakes that are either on or off.

The MGX includes nine stainless steel HPCR (9High Performance Corrosion Resistant) bearings plus a roller bearing, Infini II spool, Carbon Matrix drag system and Titanium coated line guide. The durable aircraft grade aluminum main gear reduces weight as does the compact bent carbon handle with flat EVA knobs. The recessed reel foot is more comfortable and moves the crank handle closer to the reel.

Because this reel is so much more compact and ergonomic than anything on the market today, we introduced new gear ratios for the MGX that provide similar line retrieve rates as other existing Revo reels. The Revo MGX 7.1:1 gear ratio provides similar inches per turn "IPT" to other standard 6.4:1 Revo models (28 IPT). The Revo MGX 7.9:1 high speed gear ratio model provides similar IPT to other 7.1:1 high speed Revo models (31 IPT).

The Revo MGX has a line capacity of 115 yards of 12-pound monofilament fishing line or 110 yards of 30-pound braid. Two models of the Revo MGX are available, both in right hand retrieve. MSRP is $349.95.
