Default Revo Toro 50 question

A buddy wants to sell me his silver Revo Toro 50 for $ 100.00. I will be using it on a 8' SC LT musky rod but have never used a low profile reel for musky. Is this a fair price for this reel? It's in nice shape minus a little boat rash. I believe it's a 1st generation revo toro it was made in 2010.

It will be fine for musky. I have both the older silver 50 and the 60NaCl. No problems.
Offer him 90 bucks

Thats pretty small for a dedicated Musky reel. If you are fishing with std sized musky lures you will wear that out pretty quickly.

Good bass reel though. Ck Ebay for deals on new ones close to what he wants.

The latest generation model of these reels sell for the $300-$350 range.

This reel is about 9 years old. So, considering the condition, the $100 price would certainly be a fair price if it is in excellent working condition.

Depending on your lures and the retrieve ratio of your particular reel, you may be well pleased with the reel, or you may find it a bit short on your requirements. But, certainly for the lighter lures would you would be absolutely pleased with the rig.

There has never been a question with the quality of Abu reels. Tough, well made reels.

Good luck

I have several of these reels in both the 50 and 60 series. Work well for small and medium sized bucktails, topwater and cranks. will even pull double-8 bucktails and regular sized Bulldawgs just fine. Don't expect it to handle Pounders, double-10 bucktails and big rubber just not made for it. I started buying the Revo Toro 50 for my wife and daughter to use because it's a smaller frame, easier for them to handle. I now have one on one of my bucktail rods because the smaller frame gives my hand some relief as I cup the reel. The only other thing you're giving up really is less line capacity on the 50 because of the smaller frame/spool. If it's in decent shape $100 is a fair price.

Thanks to everyone for their replies. I think I will be very happy with it. I'm putting it on a SC 8'0" LT Top and Tail rod.
