Abu Garcia® Revo® MGX Low Profile is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveL from Awesome reel and the best service! I bought this reel from a national sporting good store and after a month of use found it to be poor in performance. I contacted Abu support and they replaced the reel under warranty in less than 4 days. After two weeks of use with the new reel I have to say this is my favorite and by far best reel. I also own the Revo Premier and Revo STX and the MGX is worth every penny. It casts a mile and is as smooth as silk. The drag system is the best and I rarely suffer any backlashes. I promise you will not be disappointed with this reel as it is only out performed by their service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JackD from Good reel but not what it is advertised After doing some research and video watching I bought 2 MGXs about a year ago. The product video advertises the "Carbon Matrix Drag" system as on all Revo reels but that is not the case. The MGX has only 1 carbon drag washer and is not built to leverage big fish out of cover as advertised. I gave the reel a 3 star rating for all day fishability and for casting lighter lures but the reel lags in power. If you fish finese baits in open water it works well but if you fish any structure where big fish lurk this is not the reel for you. I am an Abu fan, I've purchased two Gen 3 Premiers but I have had some issues with their products lately and serious considering switching back to Shimano.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quincy from What's a backlash? Great reel. Almost never backlashes with the break completely backed off. Casts a mile on top of that as well. Just wish there was more drag and had a little more cranking power.
