The reel pictured below is the brand new Abu Garcia REVO Mgxtreme, one of which just landed on my desk for a field test. Though I haven't fished it yet, I can tell you it's a work of art, constructed of the latest and greatest alloys and carbon fibers. Most impressive is that it weighs only 4.9 ounces, which Abu boasts is a full .5 ounces lighter than the generation before it. Thing is, its predecessor wasn't released that long ago. This new offering is keeping in line with the biggest trend I've ever seen in fishing: make it lighter. Whenever I'm at a tackle show and ask a company how this year's reel, rod, shoe, jacket, line, etc, differs from last year's version, "it's lighter" is undoubtedly part of the answer. The question I have is how much lighter can you make stuff?
