Abu Garcia Revo MGX Low Profile Reel is rated out of 5 by 21.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bert1904 from Great reel until the side plate fell off!! Bought this real and absolutely love it, super smooth and casts a mile! Drag is strong and fits perfect in your hand. After about 3 months of owning the reel and one cast the side plate flew off and into the water. It’s possible I hit the latch and it was open but either way it’s on the bottom of the lake now! Saw the other persons review and had to leave my feedback. I’ve contacted Abu Garcia customer service 3 times now and had poor service. They are not interested in helping me replace the side plate and just say call back next month. I’m a long time customer and love their products but very disappointed with the service. I’d hate for a $350 reel to go to waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ky TomG from Light Weight, Yet Strong Bought this REVO MGX this spring..I have used it, in many ways..throwing crank baits, Spinner Baits, Buzz baits, Worm Rigs, even smaller umbrella rigs... This reel cast as easy as any I've used..light weight lure's cast easy for distant.., The drag system works great, and now that reel has dropped over $100.00 dollars in price, ( $499.99 ) I'm looking to buy a second one...I use the REVO STX reels as well...These two , the MGX, and STX, are two of the best reels ABU Garcia has ever put out....

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jay77 from Unbelievable reel I bought this reel because I’ve known the Abu name to be the best. On it’s maiden I made probably around 150 casts and was in love until the left side of the reel flew off during a cast spilling its guts into the lake. I watched in horror as the parts quickly sank out of sight in 20+ feet of water. I tried for over three hours to get at least a piece of it back. The only thing I was able to retrieve was the spool after pulling off 150 yards of line only to find out it’s going to cost me another 80+ dollars to replace what’s lost. Customer service was sympathetic but no help except to expedite shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrey from Smooth, compact, lightweight, easy and long cast. I own my MGX2 for few months. This is my second Abu Garcia after ABU 18 Revo4 Elite IB7/6 (Premier). Pros: - great improvements since first MGX (tried my friend’s one) - breaks work perfectly - long cast starting 4g and smooth work - good for both - jigs and minnows - incredibly compact and lightweight Cons: - the side plate fixing mechanism: the fix lever is placed close to index finger base, so when casting or manipulate the rod it could be opened occasionally. Like in my and many other’s cases. And it may cause the lost of the side plate and damage of brake weights arms. The same mechanism is made in my Revo Elite, but there is a shaft preventing loss. I would recommend to be careful with it. And it would be great to make some improvement to prevent this. Resume (my personal): Great reel for money but it is needed to be careful with side plate fixing mechanism.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Walker5057 from Poor Reel, Drag is shot Bought the Revo MGX in spring of 2016 used it for less then for a month in the spring fishing and the same last year with proper maintenance let the tensioners and drags off when not in use. Started acting up in 2016 when I bought it, the set screw would come loose and didn't use it till I took it in for maintenance partly due to rod issues. This year my drag will tighten but isn't actually really working on it, when you spend this much money you expect a certain quality and this hasn't been on display with me as it is down for another spring . Mine is the 7.1.1 ratio hopefully they have fixed this in the new model but wouldn't buy another for the price and quality I have experienced with this being paired with the Villain series 2.0 rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skeeterlover from Best reel I've ever owned. Abu Garcia got it right on the MGX. It is smooth, easy to make long casts, smooth drag and very light weight and comfortable. I don't want to put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Desert Eagle from MGX2-HS Christmas present 2916. This is my 5th REVO. Absolutely OUTSTANDING reel. When dialed in, the casting distance with light lures is amazing. The SMOOTHEST reel I've ever owned. A superb reel in a small, very light package.
