  • Seven stainless steel ball bearings + one roller bearing
  • X2-Cräftic™ alloy frame for increased corrosion resistance
  • Carbon Matrix™ drag system
  • Pitch centrifugal brake system
  • D2 Gear Design™
  • Ergonomically designed handle and star
The low-profile Abu Garcia Revo S Baitcast Reel is extra comfortable in your hand. A compact bent handle and star provide a more ergonomic grip. Extremely smooth in operation, the Revo S boasts an eight bearing system which utilizes stainless steel ball bearings for outstanding casting distance. The reel's X2-Cräftic aluminum alloy frame offers increased corrosion resistance, while its Carbon Matrix drag system provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range. A pitch centrifugal braking system performs at a level you'd expect from this next generation baitcaster. The Revo S Reel's D2 Gear Design provides increased efficiency while improving durability.  
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Perfect Score Although it is the intro to the Revo line this reel is incredible. I own two and several higher Revos as well as Lews and Curados. Revo S gets the most work. Is not my best reel but it is the best reel I bought for the dollar. Pairs well with Veritas. Buy it and you will fall in love as well. February 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome reel I bought this reel a while back and immediately fell in love.i have used a revo premier and have used this too and think this pretty evenly matches.casts super far,very slick and think it is good for everything,jigs,soft baits (even weightless),or spinner baits,crankbaits. All around good reel for price. February 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by How it came to be..... Hello all! If you're looking to spend a little more for a reel then you should highly consider this Revo S 3rd generation! For $129 you can get this reel that is a little more advanced but still very easy to use! I own 2 of these....one for top water and shallow cranks and one for jigs and both are paired with the matching Veritas rod. Super nice set up. Wish it came in different gear ratios but with the 6.4:1 you can be very versatile. The compact size makes it perfect if you have smaller hands. Abu Garcia really did well on these new Revo series of reels. I also own the Revo SX High Speed. Buy it and it tell us what you think! February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel I have to agree with what everybody is saying about this product. I have plenty of setups and this reel is by far my favorite and most versatile. I have it on a 7'1" Daiwa Ballistics rod and can use it for everything from cranks, to umbrellas, to jigs, and much more. Extremely smooth, great tuning abilities and love the customizable breaking magnetics. Great product for a fair price. January 29, 2014

This reel is not intended for salt water. If you are looking for salt water reels get the "inshore" series. They have blue handles and spools.

A: 
Fair for the occasional if maintained properly, rinsed with fresh water, wiped down with a corrosion inhibitor, and taken apart after every other trip or so and cleaned/lubed internally.

I would highly recommend one of the saltwater specific baitcast reels. They still need to be rinsed, wiped down, ect….But are built for the rigors of saltwater fishing.

I have heard several reports of people using it with no issues. They do use corrosion resistant parts but if your going to me off shore on a boat in some nasty weather day in and day out, I would suggest going with the inshore models.

Yes it is on the inside of the none drag/crank side. Pop the side open and there will be 5-6 different colored tabs. You can push them up or down to turn them on and off.

A: 
It has the "manual" break setting on the side of the reel handle, but not one on the other side where a magnetic break is on other reels. However, I haven't found that it needs it...it automatically adjusts...and has yet to backlash on me even throwing into wind.

Good rod match?

Details: 
I plan on purchasing this reel very soon but don't know which rod to pair it with. I was looking at the veritas to stay with the same brand and color, or possibly the verdict but as I read reviews on both I can't get past the all the reports of broken rods, with most on the first day of use. Has anybody had any problems with these or have any suggestions.

I have this reel on a 6'9 veritas and I absolutely love it. It is lighter than any other combo I have ever used. Abu Garcia rods are very well made and if you do happen to come across a dude they will replace it hassle free. I own 2 different rods by them and have had no issues.

I have my Revo S on a 7" MH Veritas micro guide rod, and this combo fishes and looks amazing. The Veritas is probably the best rod for the money. Don't hesitate at all to pair these two beauties up.

A: 
Yes. This reel would make a good reel to using for just about any bass size freshwater application. I use mine for Topwater, flukes and lighter weight texas rigged plastics as I have it on a medium rod. 50 pound braid has the diameter of 12 pound mono so it will hold around 110 yards appox of 65 pound braid.
