The Revo SX Spinning Reel from Abu Garcia combines a cutting edge design with an ultra lightweight C6 carbon body. Strong yet light, the Revo SX makes it possible to cast all day without the fatigue experienced with heavier reels. A one-piece gearbox design shaves additional weight while promoting outstanding smoothness and durability. Eight stainless steel HPCR bearings plus a roller bearing provide increased corrosion resistance.
The Revo SX Spinning Reel incorporates a machined aluminum braid-ready spool that eliminates the need for monofilament backing, allowing you to tie braid directly to the reel without slippage. For smooth, reliable drag performance, Abu Garcia has included a Carbon Matrix drag system. An X-Cräftic alloy frame is corrosion resistant, and an Everlast bail system offers increased durability. Other features include a flat EVA knob, plus a stainless steel main shaft and components. Slow Oscillation assures an even line lay with braid, mono or fluorocarbon.
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9
Rated 1 out of 5 by PondBassPro Performed poorly.
Out of the box, this reel is awesome. Smooth as silk, and the drag is one of the best i've experienced with spinning tackle. Bass can run as hard as they can, but the drag will apply consistent pressure. So why the low rating?
I fished with this reel in the rain. I noticed considerable difference in the retrieve ease, as if the gears didn't like the humidity. This reel boasts an encased gear box with brass gearing, but its not like i dropped this in the lake. It got rained on. I will return. If this is purely a defect in the product, then I will update the review. But if you are like me, and rarely splurge on equipment, and when you do, you expect it to perform under normal conditions. I'm very disappointed in the quality control too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Finaticfisherman Best spinning reel ever
This is a fantastic reel! caught a 13 pound northern on this reel, drag was smooth an held up perfectly. Would recommend this reel to any avid fisherman. Oil right away when bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by floridabass Quite Impressive
Went fishing with a friend and got to use his outfit. He was telling me how much he liked the performance of his reel and that he was thinking about purchasing another one.
I was impressed with its performance and quite surprised how easily it reeled in a 5 1/2 pound Bass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WFFL Great performance!
I have this on a Veritas rod and its a great rig. I also own 2 Revo bait-casters on Veritas and I actually like this spinning reel better. I have caught a 4 lb smallie, 5 lb largemouth, a few 3 lb Northern Pike and whole hecka of a lot of others with zero issues. This is a great combo. I plan on getting the SX40 this week for my trip to the Big O. $159 is a pretty reasonable price based on the quality. I don't see a need to spend any more on a spinning reel.
