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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abu Garcia #1 In Rods&Reels Right Out Of The Box, this reel is the best reel i have ever used. casting,reeling,drag "20 lbs." and The smoothest reel on the market. this reel has it ALL. Durability and long casts, adds"20" feet to your normal distance. with it's Mag Trax brake system. i hav'nt got a bird's nest in 4 months with using this reel "more time to fish" is very importain to a bass angler. what more can i say. try one out. March 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best value I own 15 of these reels and they perform flawlessly! I have found nothing to compare them with. they are the best for the price. March 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent reel I have an sx that I got about year and half ago and its just as smooth as the day I bought it. Excellent reel that can withstand the test of time. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best reel on the market I have no idea what these bad reviews are talking about. I have a left handed retrieve on a 7'3 medium heavy Veritas rod. It is the best reel on the market for the price. The reel is very smooth and preforms like much more expensive reels. The drag system is awesome. It holds up to 20 pounds of drag pressure. The reel holds up too. I have a bad habit of fishing fairly rough with my equipment and this held up well. Another great job Abu Garcia! December 27, 2013

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.

A: 
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.

Yes, it has some plastic parts that last longer in salt water than the metal ones that would normally be used(washers mainly). With a good rinsing after use, you should be fine.
