Bass Pro Shops introduces its Revolution 300 Casting Reel
New reel lets you throw bigger baits with more line in reserve for those fish that won’t come quietly

Rod and reel combat with the monsters lurking in your secret spot calls for big baits and heavy line. That’s why the Bass Pro Shops® Revolution 300 Casting Reel should be your weapon of choice.

Whether you’re fishing for lunker largemouths, massive muskies or other big fish with attitude, the Revolution 300 reel has the perfect blend of smooth action, line capacity, and pure power to boat that fish of a lifetime.

The Revolution 300 Reel uses a seven-bearing system that includes six stainless steel ball bearings and a PowerLock instant anti-reverse for solid, silky smooth retrieves.  A strong, precision engineered aluminum frame ensures that the gears remain in precise alignment under any amount of stress.  An adjustable Dual Braking System combines a six-pin centrifugal brake and a magnetic brake to control spool speed at the beginning and the end of each cast, which helps prevent backlashes.

A high-capacity, double-anodized aluminum spool easily accommodates heavy line and offers a line pin for secure attachment. The Revolution 300 is also offered in two gear ratios to match the line retrieve needs of your fishing situation. The 300H has a 6.2:1 gear ratio with 28 inches of line retrieved per turn. This is great for burning fast moving baits to elicit reaction strikes. The 300S has a 5.3:1 ratio and retrieves 24 inches of line per handle turn.  This reel speed excels when pulling heavy lures that produce a lot of resistance.

The drag system features a carbon washer system that has up to 20-pounds maximum of drag force while the oversized handle with Soft Touch PVC knobs gives you plenty of leverage. What it all means is the Revolution has what it takes to land the biggest fish in the lake.

There’s a revolution coming. You can feel it. Get into the fight at  your nearest Bass Pro Shops® store.
