Abu Garcia led the way in this year’s EFTTEX ‘Best New Product Awards’ celebrating two award winning reels, in the best new fixed spool (spinning) reel category with the Revo MGX and best new multiplier (baitcast) reel with the Revo Toro Beast.
These reels represent the highlights from the 2016 line up, which represents a step forward for the brand, already known for its high quality reels. Developed by a global team, with input from Japan, Australia, Sweden and North America, and engineered to give anglers the edge in all their fishing. Solveig Rask-Nielsen, Abu Garcia brand manager commented:“This has been a very big project for us and we have worked hard to create reels which embody what the Abu brand is about, while utilising the global research and development team we have. To win thetwo reel awards at EFTTEX is such a fantastic achievement; to win one is special enough, both is a dream. We believe this shows that these reels are something special and we believe they will have global sales appeal.”
