The new Revo® Premier features a lighter, more compact design that crosses the sub 6-ounce barrier by utilizing advanced materials including C6 Carbon sideplates and an upgraded carbon fiber handle with comfortable EVA knobs. The new wider Infini II™ spool design further improves casting performance without increasing the overall width of the reel. An upgraded X2- Cräftic™ alloy frame provides more advanced corrosion protection and the sideplates are constructed from weight reducing C6 Carbon.
The improved D2 Gear System is the next generation in Duragear™ design and provides better efficiency than previous models. A total of 10 High Performance Corrosion Resistant (HPCR®) bearings and one roller bearing provide smooth performance and advanced corrosion protection. The brake system has been upgraded to the Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Brake (IVCB-IV™), the same top of the line brake system used in the Revo MGX for precise control, whether casting heavy jigs or lightweight finesse baits. With 28 positions of external adjustment, the one of a kind design allows fine tuning on the water without removing the sideplate. Additionally, the IVCB-IV system allows anglers to cast extremely lightweight baits, something other baitcaster reels struggle with.

- These are good reels
Another Shimano guy. These are good reels. Everyone has them on sale now, not sure if this is end of line or what. I wouldn't recommend at full price, but on sale they are a good buy.
- Fantasitc reel
These reels are great. I too was a Shimano fan for many years then I decided to give one of these a try. I now own several Premiers along a other models of Revos.
- Good reel
I own 3 of these and they work flawlessly. I have yet to have any issues with any of them.
- Buy It, You'll Like It
I'm a Shimano guy, but the reviews I read on the Premier made me want to try one. I bought one when you had your July 4th. sale and I'm glad i did. Put it on a G.Loomis MBR843C(GLX) with a 3/8oz Chatterbait and took it for a test drive this weekend. First thing i noticed was how forgiving the cast control is. When set up properly,this reel will outcast my Curado 200E7, and that's saying something. On my sixth cast I hooked and landed a 4lb 7oz largemouth and had no trouble bringing her in. The drag is excellent and smooth( like my Shimanos ) and the reel feels very solid under stress. This reel is the real deal. If you're looking for a premium baitcaster at a good price, try one of these. You won't be dissapointed.
- Excellent Reel!!
I've always been a Shimano guy but based on what i've read about this reel, i decided to order one when you had your 4th of July sale. I mounted it on my G-Loomis MBR843C (GLX) and tied on a 3/8oz Chatterbait with a 4"Hollowbody Swimshad and took it for a test drive at my local fishing club this past weekend. On my 6th cast i hooked and landed a 4lb-7oz largemouth. This rod and reel combo is now my favorite of the ones i own. The cast control is very forgiving and works very well. I believe this reel, when set up correctly, out casts my Curado 200E7, and that's from a Shimano guy. I will hang on to my Shimanos, but I now have a Revo that is an excellent addition to my arsenal. Buy one. You won't be dissapointed.
