  • 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 4.8 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 7.8 ounces of heaven Every so often there comes a product that you purchase and after using it, all you want to do is tell everyone how great it is and show it off. The new Revo S by Abu Garcia is just that product. My new Revo S arrived earlier this week from Bass Pro. As with all reels, they were shipped over lubed in just about every area. After a good bearing flushing, cleaning and lubing back up I was ready to go. Don't be worried about your reel being over lubed. Most if not all reels from the factory are lubed this way as most people will never oil or lube them. Flushing the bearings will give you just a slight better increase in distance at best. I have several other Abu reels, but never used the Revo S with pitch/centrifugal breaking system. The owners manual was really no help at all. Its the same manual that they put in every Abu reel. Going to their website or a simple You Tube search, will give you all the help you need. After adjusting the spool control knob to the correct setting, I decided on going for distance by turning all 3 pitch brakes off and just two of the magnetic breaks on. After getting it dialed in just right I was having a blast. The Revo comes in a 6.4:1 gear ratio and has 26 inches per turn. The 6.4:1 is a great all around ratio for plastics and jigs. Also this reel has 20 pounds of drag. The Carbon drag system is very smooth and very strong. 8 ball bearings makes this a very smooth reel to operate. I have this reel paired with my Abu Veritas 7' medium/fast micro guide rod. I am using 30# braid. A lot of times, braid can rob you of distance during a cast, but with a small 2.5" popr, it throws it a mile! I barely have to use my thumb during a cast. I am so impressed with this reel. I have noticed that its somewhat noisier than my other Abu reels during a cast, but I can't see how it affects operation at all. The new Revo S has an upgraded set of D2 gears. I can't tell a difference in smoothness, but I can tell a difference when winching a bass out of the grass. Feels like it has more power and low end torque. The new Revo's come with wider spools and are super low in profile. They also have bent handles and bent drag stars to put your hand in closer to the reel. This reel being so light weight and low profile is a dream to fish with all day. Working a popr all day can get really tiresome with a heavy combo. I fished over 6 hours for 3 days straight using this and feel no fatigue at all. This reel is super light weight. I have reel grips and a full spool of braid. The reel weighs in at just 7.8 ounces. That paired with my Micro Guide rod at 4.2 ounces gives me an over all weight of 12 ounces for a complete top water rig. The look of the reel paired with the black and white Veritas rod is just amazing. Make sure you see the pictures of the rig attached. I have fished this reel very hard so far and have had no issues at all. Abu quality at its finest. I have two Revo STX Gen 2's and honestly have had more fun fishing my Revo S lately that those two. Give this Revo S a shot. If its your first Abu, it wont be your last. September 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by You need this reel! Been using this reel for salt water use. Paired it was a St. Criox Mojo 7'6, 30 lb powerpro. Handles all sizes of fish from 12-35 inch with ease. I couldn't believe how easy it felt to crank a monster in on this reel. Plenty of power and still performs 100% when I opened the package. If you're looking at the inshore revo. I suggest to save a little money and get the revo-s Same specs. June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by revo s bought this reel in March , have fished it hard for four months, most of the time with 65# braid and heavy tackle. The reel is still as smooth and quite as the first time I used it , a little oil on the out side, have not had to take it apart yet to clean it. Very good reel for the money. June 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok but will break easy I own two of these reels. The first one I bought worked well for about a year and then the thing that distributes the line evenly got stuck, which was an easy fix. The second one I bought the gears started to grind very badly. I am disappointed in abu garcia. June 8, 2014

revo s or daiwa lexa?

Details: 
which would you recommend?

Answers

A: 
Revo S. It's not even close. The Revo S is one of the best values in fishing, though I'd spend the extra cash on a Daiwa Tatula.

I've been using this reel in salt water for 2+ years. No problems and it handles big fish very well. Haven't run into any problems trying to control a fish in tight areas. Get it! has the same corrosion resistant specs as the inshore abu makes.

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.

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.

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.
