HOOOORAY! - I Won a New Abu Garcia Revo MGX via the Outdoor Blogger Network

Last week got off to an incredible start thanks to the Outdoor Blogger Network.  I was lucky enough to win their pseudo-weekly review giveaway, which featured Abu Garcia products last week.  I ended up winning an Abu Garcia Revo MGX - their brand new, carbon fiber, 5.4 oz reel.  Reading the news literally caused me to let out a scream of joy - and even Huck joined in the celebration with a mini-howl of his own.  Combined with my favorite Carolina Custom Rod - we are talking a 9 oz combo....YIKES!  I will be reviewing the reel as soon as it gets here and posting the review on my site and on OBN. 

If you like to blog or read blogs, definitely check out the Outdoor Blogger Network.  They feature blogs from just about every possible outdoor category and are a great network of folks.  It is where I stumbled upon many of my favorite yak fishing blogs - listed on the right side of my page.

Now, the MGX wasn't the only new product added last week.  On Friday, I finally got to pick-up my two new Malibu Kayak Stealth 12s.  I will go over them and show them off in my next blog.  Until then...tight lines!


  1. Good for you, I've been eying one of thos reels since they revealed them. That is sweet, I haven't been on OBN for a minute. Guess I should pay more attention!

  2. I know the feeling. I hadn't been on in a while either and I happened to log on the first day it was posted. Since then, I have been on daily!
