TackleTour's 2008 Holiday Gift Guide (Part 1)

Saltwater Casting Reel: (Abu Garcia Revo Toro) The Toro reminds us of the HULK, this is exactly what the a standard "human sized" Revo would look like if it was bombarded with Gamma radiation. At first glance the Toro seems massive but pick it up and the reel does offer reasonable ergonomics and a nice alternative from the conventional round reel. 


Abu-Garcia's Revo Toro is the HULK of baitcasters


While the Toro may be sleeker than traditional round reels it offers just as much capacity and stays rigid even in tough battles thanks to a X-Craftic aluminum alloy. This material is more durable and lighter than regular aluminum and is highly corrosion resistant.


While good for saltwater fishing the Toro also makes a great swimbait reel


Seven High Performance Corrosion Resistant HPCR bearings and Duragear brass gears add to the reelís durability and long life and with 24-pounds of maximum drag the Toro can take on all comers. While good for saltwater fishing the Toro also doubles as an exceptional swimbait reel. The Abu-Garcia Revo Toro is available at Monster Tackle for a special limited time special Holiday Price.
