Abu Gracia / Pure Fishing Customer Service

8 posts in this topic

I just had to give a shout out too Pure Fishing. I got a Revo;s

SX-HS reel for Xmas this year that I just love. While fishing last weekend the reel foot that hold's it to the rod broke.

I sent it in to Pure fishing expecting to be charged for repairs as I didn't have the receipt and couldn't prove that it

was within their warranty period. That was on Monday and today a brand new reel show up at my office no questions asked. Now that is great customer service. I know I'll be purchasing a few more.

Glad to hear they have great service. Service often effects my buying decision.

This is off topic, but between the Revo S and SX you own, how do they compare as far as castablity, distance, smoothness of the cast & retrieve?

I know one of the key differences is the SX has the magnetic vs the centrifuge brakes on the S. This is the area I am probably most interested in (castabilty). I have heard the magnetic system is not as effective when adjusting to different conditions/situations to help minimize backlash issues.

Thanks

Not sure how to answer that. Mine is the 7:01 gear ratio and

I only use it for flippin. It is smooth and very compact.

I've always been pretty much a Quantum guy with few Curado's

but the Revo's is what I'll purchase in the future.

Hiya -

NCLaker - I've been told by a couple different Abu guys that when it comes to the Revo, you're better off either getting the S, or going all the way up to the STX. Not that the SX isn't a good reel, but the performance differences between the S and SX aren't all that great, given the price difference, while the STX is a lot easier to adjust for cast control compared to the SX.

I have a couple of the S models and love 'em. Great little reels.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Oops ... sorry TBB, miss understood your post, thanks for responding.

RK - thanks for the tip. The Revo S is so dang cheep (relative to most BCs), I may pick one up just to check it out. If I don't like it I don't think I would have a problem reselling it.

I like how small the Revo's are, low price point, and ya rarely hear much negative feedback - most people love 'em.

Guys,

The S is a nice reel but I wanted the 7:1 and you can't get it

in the S.

Good point ... didn't realize they did not have a 7:1 version. Thats a bummer, cause that is likely what I would be looking for. That'll give me more to think about.

    • I'm awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though
