REVSU710M-SB vs SW966-M

They both have very similar ratings help me decide I’m going to be using it for swimbaits, grubs and buck tails

Unless you're going to be using lures up to 3 oz both look too heavy/powerful for grubs and bucktails. What is the max lure weight you plan to use? Big largemouth jointed swimbaits or 3-5 inch plastic swimbaits?

The 710 is much lighter in weight, probably of higher mod material, but both are pretty heavy blanks.

I will be throwing typically 1 oz to 3 oz

And I’ll be using soft plastic swimbaits

Looks like either will do. I would pick the lighter one. But I'm not an expert on this kind of fishing.

Try calling Batson Enterprises for in person consulting.
