Constructed from corrosion-resistant X2-Cräftic aluminum alloy, the Abu Garcia Revo SX Baitcaster offers light weight and increased durability. The Revo SX boasts stainless steel bearings plus an Infini II spool design for smooth casting with added distance. A Carbon Matrix drag system provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range. The Revo SX Reel’s D2 Gear Design provides a more efficient gear system with improved gear durability. A MagTrax magnetic brake system gives consistent brake pressure throughout the cast. An Infini II spool design is used for extended castability and extreme loads. Other features include a compact bent handle and star for a more ergonomic grip. A titanium-coated line guide reduces friction and improves durability.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Reel, good weight, cast ability I bought this reel because I have been in between Abu and Shimano for a long time. While I own many reels by both, this compares well with a more expensive reel due to its cast ability, weight (lack of), and how it fits on my rod in a palm able, low profile way. It is a pleasure to hold and tuning the brakes is very easy. I would purchase this reel again and again! One big thing for me is how the brake tension knob "clicks" when you adjust it tighter or looser, that way you can kind of "know how many clicks" you loosened it or tightened it for a different lure. September 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quite as a mouse My wife got me this reel for my birthday. I have no idea what noise some of the reviewer are talking about. As for my reel, it is very quite and very lite. I matched it with the Abu Garcia 6.6 medium Vendetta rod and I couldn't be more pleased. It took a little while to get it set to my liking, but once I got it set, it's the best casting reel I have ever owned. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excelent It's the best reel I've ever own !! I was fishing for about 8 hours straight and i wasn't tired at all, it's a very smoth reel and cast miles away. It's very easy to set up and its a very versatil reel, you can use it for cranks or plastics, jigs or whatever you want. It's a very powerfull reel and when you fish a heavy largemouth, you feel very confidence, whit the reel. The Brake system it's awsome !! and the weight of the reel it's perfect !! You will never hear a noise from it !! September 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great baitcast reel Was using an old baitcast reel that my brother gave me, but I decided to upgrade. Picked up this reel after comparing it to the similarly priced shimano, daiwa, and pflueger reels. I have a couple of abu garcia spinning reels and they have been my favorite. This reel feels, looks, and performs great. I'm not the best at using a baitcast, but right out of the box I'm casting twice as far as my other reel and it's twice as easy. Paired it with a 7' Vendetta and it's the perfect combo. August 3, 2014

A: 
You can adjust the spool tension by the drag, and also the magnetic brake on the other side. But there are no brakes to play with by taking the palm able side plate off. Not like it matters because i've been able to fine tune this to throw 1/8 oz lures...

A: 
No it does not. Just your typical mag brake with the dial setting on the outside. However, this should be worth more than the advertised price. This SX is super light, can cast very far, and it's very smooth. It's worth every penny. I have two of the SX and one of the STX, all third generation models. Both my SX out perform the STX in all aspects. The only GOOD thing about the STX is that, you will have a lot less chance to bird nest.

The sx-hs has a higher gear ration, which means it is faster on the retrieve. Go fast(hs) you'll like it better. Hs means high speed. I use the hs model and love it.

just about the same animal. the "h s" brings in more line per handle crank due to its higher gear ratio. the specs should show how many inches per turn. hope this helps

A: 
You should go with braid line from the brand you like most, i suggest you to check the PowerPro : bradiez spectre, super click braid or zero impact. Or there also Sufix 832 and Samuraï from Daiwa. You also should go for 20lb. test to 60lb. test but i reccomend you the 30lb. test in PowerPro because it's the best size and capacity line.

for crankbaits you will have better luck with a revo winch. (lower gear ratio)
line size 12-20 flouro and braid for flipping works great.

thats a hard cast! 1/2 oz and up is where these work best. BUT with 8 lb mono and a perfect dial in and a bit of luck it may work for you. the casting distance will be shorter due to the lack of weight!

A: 
It depends on some factors.
1. is the water free from obstructions? such as trees etc
2. the clarity of the water
if it has heavy obstructions and dirty water 14+ test clear unobstructed 8-10.
I never use braid in clear water as it repels strikes, don t like it in general as when you snag or pull on it, the line "buries" in the spool causing break offs. Also braid does not do well with sharp objects such as rocks and abrasive items. some of the more expensive Fluorocarbons such as the Halo is acceptable. Most flourocarbons are very brittle and do not do well with abrasion. Learned this by losing some large fish. If I am fishing in "junk" rocks, trees heavy heavy stuff, I use Copolymer, it has a lot of memory, but I have literally uprooted bushes and brought back lures. I hope this helps....

A: 
12lb flurocaron, either PLine or EZFluro. 6:4:1 is a good all around retrieve. You can use light or weightless plastics. 3/8oz spinners will fly. Likewise, cranks and jerkbaits. Not the best reel for flippin and skippin.

If you want to use the same reel for both baits, I recommend 12lb. Anything heavier will impact the distance and action of your crank baits.

It is corrosion resistant, but not "salt" resistant. If you're planning to use the SX for salt water, you might as well throw away your $159.
