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.

    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
    • Buy the best door you can afford. I installed a steel clad Peach Tree door on the front of my place mainly because it faces south and there is a big temp difference during the day. I paid 600.00 for it, not much for a door these days but thirty years ago I had the father in law scratching his head when we put it in. My back door is out of the sun and I went with an all glass Morgan door, 300.00 I think it was still looks almost brand new after all of these years. Love the light that it lets it. Both have adjustable thresholds and we keep an eye on the weather-stripping. Stay away from the box store bargain doors unless it is rental property. Another thing is don't go cheap on the lock sets, you get what you pay for. Also reinforce the jam on the lock side while you are replacing the door.
