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.

    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.
