The lightest 129g bait finesse reel in REVO history

New and next generation bait finesse reels are now available.

The lightest 129g in REVO history!

Equipped with Magtrax III brake system that can increase the number of magnets according to user preference.

Its lightness is different dimension, real finesse that improves the sensitivity and characteristics of the rod to be mounted.

The gear ratio is 8.0: 1 high speed, which is advantageous for recovery.

LTX evolution, a sense of unity due to ease of holding

“Revo LTX-BF8” The evolution of Abu’s reel that I felt using this reel is remarkable. Anyway, it is light, and the clutch is also light.

The width of the magnetic brake is wide and the number of internal brakes can be customized by yourself, so it is a reel that can cover quite light lures.

What’s most exciting is the evolution of “easiness to hold”, which makes me happy about Abu reels.

The previous LTX was also very good, but this reel has a smaller body, making it easier to hold and grip. It will be the best match for small Japanese hands.

It inherits the goodness of Abu reels and is much easier to use.

I’m convinced that it will help me when using finesse.

Tackle impression Komori Pro

I think it is such a reel that will definitely be a weapon.

To be honest, I never imagined that such a hidden ball would come out during the 2015 season.

I was with the developer in charge of testing and used it for half a day.

It’s a perfect reel from the beginning. First, the size is one size smaller.

Its lightness is terrifyingly light as soon as you hold the reel.

The downside associated with it could not be discovered as long as I used it.

Improve sensitivity and operability when setting with a rod by reducing the weight of the reel.

It will definitely be a weapon. “

Explanation of how to add a brake magnet

REVO LTX-BF8 Recommended magnet setting and thread winding amount

・ After setting the magnet, set the dial to the MAX position and gradually set it weakly. There are some cases that cannot be returned due to backlash.
・ When using a thread thinner than the 8lb line, set the brake to a higher level. Backlash may cause a gap between the spool and the frame.
・ Regarding the recommended thread winding amount, refer to the handle rotation speed at the time of thread winding.
-Set the mechanical brake so that there is no play beside the spool. If the thread floats, lightly tighten it.

  • X-MAG frame

    X-MAG frame

    Magnesium frame is designed to the limit while reducing the weight without sacrificing strength.

  • C6 side plate

    C6 side plate

    Unique new material C6 carbon is an engineering plastic reinforced with carbon fiber, whose rigidity is comparable to magnesium. The use of this material has resulted in significant weight savings without sacrificing strength and durability.

  • Magtrax III brake system

    Magtrax III brake system

    A unit with five magnet pockets for five 3mm thickness and five for 1.5mm thickness is adopted. Fine adjustment is possible according to the casting characteristics of the user and the condition of the rod. It is possible to cope with the air resistance of various types of light lures, which has progressed in recent years. The standard comes with three 3mm pieces, two other 3mm pieces and five 1.5mm pieces.

  • Ultra-light duralumin, super lightweight φ32mm spool

    Ultra-light duralumin, super lightweight φ32mm spool

    The weight of the spool that determines the performance of the bait finesse. The spool became lighter by changing to φ32mm from φ33mm with the conventional LTX. Approximately 6.3 g without bearings and pins. The thorough weight reduction of the spool, which does not incorporate extra mechanisms while analyzing the strength, achieved synergistic effects with the Magtrax brakes and achieved a different dimension of cast feel and casting performance.

  • Recessed reel foot

    Recessed reel foot

    The split reel foot pushes down the spool, making it even more low-profile. Height from the foot is about 38mm. Provides comfortable palming performance.

  • Low pro

  • Soft clutch

    Soft clutch

    The clutch mechanism was reviewed from the ground up to realize a soft clutch with good operating performance. The degree of fatigue due to repeated operations of the day can be reduced.

  • Carbon star drag

    Carbon star drag

    Carbon is indispensable for weight reduction. Like the handle arm, the star wheel is made of carbon, which contributes to weight reduction.

  • Lightweight EVA round knob

    Lightweight EVA round knob

    Adopts round EVA knob. Because there is no direction, you can immediately move to the natural handle action after casting.

  • Bundled flat knob

    Bundled flat knob

    A flat knob is included so you can replace it with a special tool if you like.

  • Replacement colored nut plate

    Replacement colored nut plate

    Includes 4 color nut plates. It can be combined with Abu Garcia’s fantasista rod as an accent or treated like a line memory.
