A New Player in the High End Spinning Reel Market - Abu Garcia's Lightweight Zenon
Initially announced during ICAST 2020 with a planned roll out during the Fall of that same year, Abu Garcia's new flagship spinning reel, the Zenon finally made its debut in time for the 2022 season. The Zenon crosses the $500 threshold into what we consider enthusiast, or even halo reel, territory...
Set to Destroy! Okuma’s Hakai Might Just Change How You View the Brand’s Baitcasters
The Hakai is Okuma’s newest generation low-profile reels that have been developed by the ground up to raise the bar for the brand’s entire lineup of baitcasters. Does the Hakai destroy when it comes to casting? Let’s find out.
SLIDE into the Next Phase of CZB Equipped Reels with the 13 Fishing Concept Z SLD
The 13 Fishing team has never been afraid to question what makes a good reel, rod, or lure, and building their brand with bold products. Building upon the bearing-less design of the original Concept Z, the new Gen II Z SLD (Slide) reel is designed to take cast control even further with an additional braking system that can be adjusted on the fly, and even between casts.
Kistler Enters the Reel Market with Their Series 1 Casting Reels
Validating the dilemma anglers face trying to match the correct brand of reel to their fishing rods, a handful of the reel manufacturers actually started out as rod manufacturers. If you think about it, just about every reel manufacturer makes rods, so why not vice versa?
Okuma's Budget Friendly Carbon Spinning Reel, the ITX
Believe it or not, despite my enthusiast leanings, there are times when I cannot resist a good value - especially if that value has a more expensive look and feel. Okuma's latest spinning reel is an example of this condition.
So much Hype - The Beast that is the Daiwa Zillion 2021
Daiwa gets things started in 2021 with the launch of their new Zillion SV TW, a much anticipated complete overhaul of their Zillion Series. This new reel comes with a ton of "Hyper" marketed features and we take a deep dive into the reel's new design and performance to see if just how well the new reel stands up to all the hype.
Great for Finesse, but Capable of So Much More. Shimano's Vanford Spinning Reel
Shimano's newest spinning reel, the Vanford, picks up where the Stradic CI4+ left off and makes use of new features, including a Long Stroke Spool design and Micro Module II gearing, all with the goal of delivering not just a better casting reel, but a smoother retrieving one as well.

Daiwa Drops the 2021 Limited Edition Steez SV TW Ahead of Schedule
In April and May, we begin to see these items hit our favorite JDM tackle store shelves. Daiwa Japan is about five to six months ahead of schedule already shipping their new introductions, and today we take a look at the newly released Limited Edition Steez SV TW 1000.

Don't Let the Elevator Break You Down, Going Crazy with Abu's Revo4 IKE
If you'd rather we cut to the chase and just give you the real down low on the Abu Garcia Revo IKE Casting reel, this is essentially the Revo4 STX with a fancy, color shifting finish and swept carbon handle. Is that enough to warrant the $50 uptick in price? That's what we're here to find out.
Built for Finesse. Shimano's Curado MGL 70 K Baitcasters
The newest addition to the Shimano Curado line is the smaller 70 MGL K, and the biggest upgrade is not only the more compact form factor but the addition of a lightweight MGL spool. Designed to help anglers make pinpoint casts with lighter baits, this new reel looks to carry on the Curado Series tradition of being a benchmark baitcaster. Let's see how it stacks up to today's tough competition, and history.
Tuned for Big Baits - Abu Garcia's REVO Beast X Casting Reel
The Beast X shares the same size, shape, spool capacity as its pricier siblings, but in a slightly toned down package mimicking the look and feel the REVO X, all for a price $100 below that of the standard Beast.
Shimano's Twin Power FD is a Solid Choice
Fresh off the heels of my positive experience with the Stradic FL, I was hungry for a new spinning reel to fish. Turns out, Stradic wasn't the only spinning reel platform from Shimano to be updated for 2020. Twin Power, the former JDM only but now global platform sitting somewhere between Sustain and Stella, also received some new initials.
A Masterpiece - Shimano's Metanium 150B Baitcaster
The Metanium reels have always focused on a balance of both performance and weight, and for 2020 the reel has been redesigned with a never before seen Magnesium CoreSolid body.
Getting to Know Daiwa's Luvias LT Spinning Reel
Lately, JDM Spinning reels for me are like Sith lords. They always come in twos, no less, no more. Usually it's Exist and Stella, but in 2020, I'm getting to know two others. On the Shimano side, I've been getting acquainted with Twin Power. To match, new to my arsenal on the Daiwa side, and the subject of today's review is Luvias, the 2020 Luvias FC LT2500S-XH to be exact.
Cast Control Unlike Any Other: 13 Fishing Launches the Innovative Z SLIDE Baitcaster
13 Fishing is doing what the company is known for, pushing the boundaries of what anglers normally expect from their tackle, and in this case baitcasters. The innovative new Concept Z SLD challenges what anglers can expect from low-profile cast control systems with an innovative on-the-fly magnetic slider that is integrated right next to the spool itself.
The New Benchmark for a Workhorse Spinning Reel : Shimano's Stradic FL
Similar to Chronarch over on the casting reel side of things, Shimano likes to experiment with different materials when building Stradic. The Stradic Ci4+ is one of Zander's favorite reels, but for some reason the carbon composite spinning reel bodies don't appeal to me. The Stradic FL features a HAGANE Body...
Complete with a Prize Inside the Cereal Box : Abu Garcia's REVO EXD
Abu Garcia's Revo EXD looks like just about every other Revo, Gen 4 reel, except it's not. It is built with an X-Craftic alloy frame and C6 carbon side plates, features carbon fiber pattern accents around the gear case, has a nice, long ninety millimeter, swept carbon handle, and purple highlights at the dragstar, cast control knob, knob caps, handle nut retainer, and spool. And yes, it comes with two spools...


More Bang for the Buck : The Shimano SLX DC Baitcaster Series
Shimano continues to make their digital cast control (DC) technology available in more affordable reels, and for the first time has equipped their SLX series with the same I-DC4 cast control system first introduced in the Curado DC two years ago. The SLX DC Series marks the first time that a DC equipped reel has been available to US anglers under the 200 mark.
Ready for Battle: Abu Garcia Introduces New ZATA Series at the Classic
The Bassmaster Classic continues to be a hot venue for manufacturers to introduce new products early in the season and this week Abu Garcia launched a number of new products including the ZATA Series of reels and rods which leverage proven platforms and bold new military-green styling.
The Best Tatula Yet? The Tatula SV TW103 Baitcaster is a Worthy Baitfinesse Option
Daiwa’s Tatula Series of products continues to be a top selling series for the company and this weekend at the Classic the company is introducing yet another version, the Tatula SV TW 103, their lightest Tatula to date. We have been fishing a mass production reel for a few months and it is time to take a closer look at this new lighter, and more refined, baitcaster.
Hybrid Powerhouses - 13 Fishing's Limited BOSS Series Baitcasters
13 Fishing is known for introducing products that stand out from the competition in terms of technologies and designs, and is definitely not one to shy away from bold styling. Last ICAST the company introduced a limited run of premium baitcasters, the BOSS series, which make use of a combination of bearing types with more robust brass gearing.
Anything but Ordinary – Okuma’s Limited Edition Chroma Spinning Reel
The Okuma Chroma is the most visually stunning spinning reel that Okuma has created to date, and was inspired by contemporary art and tuned to provide a unique extremely limited edition product for anglers.
Casting Wind Sprints with Big Baits : Abu Garcia's Beast Rocket
There's no question we are in the midst of a speed war with manufacturers raising the rate of retrieve in low profile casting reels each passing year. Seven point something used to be considered incredibly fast but is now the new five point something as we see several reels cresting ten to one ratios hitting store shelves...
Abu Garcia Puts It All Together in the REVO 4 Premier
As with previous generations, the gen 4 size and shape of the Premier is the same as that of its siblings. The differences are in finish. The Premier features a glossy, semi-metallic black finish with gold highlights and comes with a very attractive, swept carbon handle capped off with contoured EVA foam knobs.
Lew's Takes It To The Next Level : Pro-Ti SLP Baitcaster
Encouraged through my experience with Lew's best selling, $99.99 Speed Spool LFS, I felt it was about time we took a look at the brand's flagship model. Featuring an aluminum frame and sideplates, the Lew's Pro-Ti SLP is touted as the best reel Lew's has made to date. Does it stand up to the hyperbole? Let's find out.
Quantum's Colorful Accurist S3 Spinning Reel
Not only is recreational fishing a great way to get outdoors and spend some time in fresh air, away from our connected lives, but ultimately it's fun. Shouldn't our tackle reflect that? Many manufacturers are catching up with that mindset and offering little tweaks and cosmetic enhancements to their products. Quantum's new Accurist S3 spinning reels are one such product.
Mike Iaconelli's Signature Spinning Reel from Abu Garcia
By now, you're probably aware of Abu Garcia's refreshed suite of Mike Iaconnelli signature rods and reels that are easily identifiable with their unique paint finishes and purple highlights. Today, we're here to tell you about a product to complete Abu Garcia's IKE lineup - the Revo4 IKE spinning reel.

Leaner, Meaner, and a whole lot Greener. Meet the 13 Fishing Inception Sport Z Baitcaster
Designed to offer anglers the best of both worlds, the Inception SZ draw upon features and technology from the rest of the 13 Fishing portfolio in an effort to deliver a more feature rich, and long-lasting reel, all at the aggressive $150 dollar price point.

Abu Garcia's Revo4 Beast is a Beauty
Abu Garcia has done an excellent job with their generation 4 refresh of their popular Revo low profile casting reel lineup. We've fished just about every model with reviews either published or pending publication. Today, we take a look at the model tailored for throwing big baits. Here's a look at Abu Garcia's Revo4 Beast.

Do You Believe in Magic? Our $99 Low Profile Casting Reel Round Up
When it comes to rods and reels, there's something magical about that $99 price point. We hear it referenced countless times from multiple manufacturers each year at ICAST. Once considered the threshold for higher end tackle, now it's break-point for value driven rods and reels. At ICAST 2018, there were a couple of reel manufacturers refreshing or introducing a new low profile baitcaster in this category.
Lew's Goes Mg with their Hyper Mag SLP
Introduced during ICAST 2017 as Lew's new top end reel, the Hyper Mag SLP casting reel had barely any time to shine when just one short year later the company introduced the Pro-Ti SLP as their new flagship. What did the Hyper Mag SLP do or not do to deserve such an abrupt demotion? We decided to take one out for a spin to find out.

Abu Garcia Begins the Countdown to Liftoff with the 10.1:1 Revo4 Rocket
The race for highest speed, low profile baitcasting reel has accelerated since ratios crested 6.6:1. For a year or two, we had incremental increases above 7.1:1, then after engineering allowed manufacturers to crest 8.0:1, the count up has accelerated another notch. Today, we're here to discuss the very first 10.1:1 low profile baitcasting reel on the market.

One for the Enthusiasts: The Shimano Antares A70 Baitcaster with MGIII
Every lineup needs a flagship, and in Shimano’s low profile baitcasters series the one reel to rule them all is the Antares A70, the smallest and most advanced non-DC equipped Antares the company has introduced. Designed to usher in a new benchmark in refinement and casting performance, with the implementation of the new MGII spool design, this reel might just be the company’s most sophisticated yet.
Is ICAST's Best Freshwater Reel of 2016 Still Relevant?
It has been a few years since Lew's introduced their Custom Pro SLP casting reel and took home ICAST honors for Best Freshwater Reel back in 2016. Lew's has since introduced two reels above this former flagship. In a category where a three year old product could mean it's over the hill, does the Custom Pro SLP still hold up today? Let's find out.

Okuma Gets Stealthy with the Cerros Baitcaster
This past year at ICAST was relatively quiet for Okuma, but while surveying their low profile casting reels, I spotted a reel of which I was not familiar. It's an understated little gloss black number that felt good in hand and surprised me a little bit with the price tag of only $104.99, so after the show, I ordered one for a closer look.

Abu Garcia Makes a Case for (MG)Xtreme Value and Performance
What if you want to feed your enthusiast soul with something better than "budget" but want to stay away from "extravagant"? The answer there lies in the dollar amount you consider the happy median. If you have a good amount of flexibility in that definition, Abu Garcia has a new flagship spinning reel that could very well feed your hunger. Let's take a closer look at the MGXtreme spinning reel by Abu Garcia

Best Value Is An Accurist Statement from Quantum
Back in 2017, Quantum debuted their new, from the ground up casting reel design for their renewed Smoke and PT Tour casting and spinning reels. These, new "S3" engineered reels were to usher in a new era for Quantum. Fast forward a year later to ICAST 2018, and the manufacturer has infused this approach into the lineup that's going to really get all the attention.
A Closer Look at Lew's Best Seller, the Speed Spool LFS
Lew's re-emerged as a reel company to be reckoned with roughly around the time the first generation Abu Garcia Revos debuted. Admittedly, we don't cover enough Lew's product here at TackleTour, and hopefully that will change from this point forward. Today, we take a look at arguably, they're best selling reel, the $99.99 Speed Spool LFS
Shimano SLX Baitcasters Deliver the Features that Anglers Need, at a Price they Demand
Shimano’s latest foray into the hotly contested $99 dollar price point, the SLX, looks to be a real contender by returning to an aluminum based frame with a more compact profile, upping the ante in both refinement and performance.
Now Back to a More Traditional Package : Abu Garcia's Gen 4 Revo S
With the introduction of their new entry level Revo model, the X, Abu Garcia must have realized sales of their former entry level Revo, the S, were bound to slow down. But just what are the differences between the S and the X and is the S still a good value at $30 more than the X? Let's take a closer look.
A First Look at the Upcoming 13 Fishing Inception Sport Z Baitcaster
13 Fishing has never been afraid of bold designs and styling when it comes to their tackle offerings. The company is preparing to introduce a new Inception Series reel at the upcoming Bassmaster Classic, and it will be the first reel in the mainstream series to make use of the company’s Concept Zero Bearings (CZB)
