The new Revo SX takes cutting edge design to the next level by utilizing ultra lightweight C6 Carbon body that provides the strength needed, without the added weight of aluminium. The one-piece gear box reduces weight for exceptional gear feel and durability. With a machined-aluminium, braid-ready spool, you can tie braid directly to the reel without it slipping and the X-Craftic frame offers a strong, corrosion-free design. A Carbon Matrix hybrid drag system creates a super smooth drag, while the spool's slow oscillation provides even line lay.

Built specifically for UK saltwater fishing, the new ABU 7500 Elite multiplier features a redesigned and strengthened spool spindle to maximise spool and gear alignment under heavy casting and direct pressure loads. Special brass side-plates have been added for increased strength and improved corrosion resistance for a long reel life. The reel incorporates strategically placed stainless-steel ball-bearings ensuring a smooth retrieve against heavy fish, but also long range casting performance. This unique model also features a Carbon Matrix drag using a long, smooth power arc with the ability to handle both mono and braid lines, and the 4-pin centrifugal braking system allows easy spool brake pressure adjustment to achieve long, effortless casts in all weather conditions. A tough, versatile reel, it is ideal for rough ground shore fishing, up tide boat casting, as well as standard 20lb line class boat fishing. This model is the CS level-wind version.

Advantages: Location Disadvantages: More of a business Hotel than for lesuire
...I decided to treat my mum and me to a short break to Abu Dhabi last year and choose the Millennium Hotel to stay in. We managed to find a taxi easily enough at Abu Dhabi airport and after a short drive (30mins) we arrived at the hotel. On first impressions I was a little disappointed. I had all these grand images in my head, but in reality the hotel seemed pretty standard.
The room itself...
Advantages: Peaceful, lovely pool, helpful staff, nice rooms Disadvantages: Middle of nowhere, food not brilliant.
...(no thank you!) and this one, at $170 a night. I was a bit confused though as several hotel finder sites put it as Dubai, but the address was Abu Dhabi. Looking on the map we found why, it is nearly exactly haflway between the two emirates. As my husband was working quite nearby and we had a hire car, this was not a problem. If you come from Dubai, it is about 40 minutes drive from...
Advantages: In the airport, inexpensive, convenenient Disadvantages: Only 40 rooms, no in-room internet
...What to do?
You are travelling via Abu Dhabi, it's midnight, you've arrived to discover that your onward flight is delayed, or cancelled. Or perhaps you're flying from Abu Dhabi, you've checked out of your hotel and come to the airport for your overnight flight, and it is delayed. Or - as in my case - the midnight flight was full, I was hoping to get on at the last minute but no luck...
