okay, I finally beat to death my Daiwa HSTA, I use my equipment A LOT, since I rely on touch and feel, the weight of the reel is a major concern for me with my carbon fiber rods. I couldn't afford a STEEZ or Pixy, so after researching, the Revo SX, I purchased one. WOW! was I surprised! it casts smoothly, okay the drag may not be the same as the magforce Z, but it is very very close. the drag is far better than the old reel and has gobs of stopping power. the weight allows the bite to transmit better also. It reels very smoothly and casts accurately without much thought. It is a far better value for $159, than spending $300+ for something similar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TeamMudPuddle Worth the purchase
I bought this reel without reading any reviews. My local BPS didn't have the STX in stock, so I settled for this. I am happy with the reel. Took a few casts to get feel of the brake system. After I got it dialed in, it casts 60yrds effortlessly and smooth. I mainly small mouth, and this reel brought in a 4.8lb river smalley without and issue. The weight on the handle side is a tad heavy, but not a big issue. Not the best reel for flippin or skippin docks or tulley patches. I would recommend the BPS Johnny Morris 2 for that. Better braking. Just upgrade the bearings.

I have meant to get into baitcasting for years now. I did attempt it years ago but it just did not take. I have numerous years of spinning experience and I just could not make the change. I recently attempted to take it up again and decided after a lengthy search (and research) to try the Abu Garcia Revo SX.
I am so happy I did. It took several hours to figure out all the settings. Not to mention the numerous practice casts to the maple trees in the back yard!
What a difference in technology since I initially tried baitcasting 5 years ago. Smooth. Fast. Powerful. Relatively affordable and great aesthetics. As a design teacher, I have no idea why companies do not make more effort in this department - if not simply for the whole "book cover" selling a product ideology.
Looks great, performs great. Abu Garcia seems to be hitting a high note lately with its recent products and a new relationship with famous Canadian pro fisher, Bob Izumi.
If this reel can perform this well for an uninitiated bait castor such as myself, it can help anyone improve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by muskieloser1 I like it!
I love the size of this reel. If your hands are too big and rest on the gear box, well that's kinda why we go to the store and test them. It's was very comfortable to cast all day.
It was a bit difficult to figure out at first. The last few years, I've been using bigger musky reels, but once I brake and the spool set up, it nest up at all. And the drag system was really good. I was impressed how well it performed. My first fish on this reel was a bigger sized pike that was fun to fight.
I recommend this reel to anyone, even with the price tag.
