    Anybody use the Revo Toro Winch 50? Would this be a good shallow water rock fishing reel, and even sand bass / calicos? Not sure if the low gear ratio (4.6:1) is too low?
    I appreciate any advice.
    Thanks,

    I bass fish on the local club tourney circuit.... I have blown out 3 abu revos.... Haven't tried any of the bigger Revos's like the winch though. Do not know what the deal is with their drag blowing out. Starts with a bee hive in the reel then the drag stops working.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've used the Toros and had good luck so far, was wondering about the low gear ratio on the Winch. Had a chance to pick one up real cheap and pulled the trigger.....see how it goes.

    heck ya! I grew up on their inshore reels and never had a problem. I use the bass reels daily, so could be just getting worked out a bit!
