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.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
