I now own 6 and have tired to ware them out. Just keep them clean and oiled. No problems and looong casts.
Smooth as silk. you have to pay double to get as good.
This product not only outperforms all other abu garcia reels I have ever used but the smoothest reel I had ever used up to this point was the Shimano Calcutta. Super smooth. It is very easy to set the brake so the backlash is virtually non-existant. Low profile, light weight. Any reel over $100 ought to perform and this does. I do need to mention that one screw was almost completely out when I opened the box.
I'm a tournament fisherman, and have used just about every reel made. I've heard a lot about the new Revo reels and decided to try them. They are in a class by themselves. Totally impressed.
Got this one on sale. Would have paid full price, but at this price it was a steal!
I put this reel to the test by fishing for fresh, big steelhead in Oct 2010. The reel casts like a dream and functions very smoothly. The price is great, too. My complaint has to do with the drag. After day 4 the drag began to jump at a very modest (relative to the 20+ lbs of drag possible) 6lb setting. I think that the initial drag stress -- intertial drag -- is where the problem lies. But this jumpy drag caused me to pull the reel off front line duty and revert to my Shimanos. I recommend the Revo for non-salmon/ steelhead applications as I don't think that the drag problems I experienced are going to apply to, e.g. most bass fishing situations.
With out a doubt this reel is very good. I use it on a 5'-6" rod. I can cast as far as I wish with in reason. It's great for flippen, and the braking is great.
I highly recommend this real. I have 2 of these and one stx. I do not see a big difference in the two for the difference in price. My dad fell on my stx and broke the handle and abu-garcia replaced it with a brand new reel in 8 days. The reel is super smooth. I use them for lipless crankbaits and texas rigged worms mostly. Makes every other reel i own feel like junk after using it.
Far superior to my Shimano Citica. Much greater casting distance with a much better drag system.
Long casts, very smooth, best price found.
I've been bass fishing for 27 years and this Revo SX reel is the smoothest I've ever used.
I own half dozen on the SX-HS and for the money there isn't a better reel on the market. I use them mainly for Pitching
and the hook set is rock solid and the retrieve ratio is outstanding. I would highly recommend anyone give this reel a try, you won't be disappointed/.
i have been useing abu garcia reels for 30 years it was very hard for me to try something other than a round reel but i did and i was impresed with the comfort smoot casting and the drag was great the ease of service all i can say is please try one very soon
Great reel, Wish I had a dozen. The revo reel is the smoothest reel I have used in a long time. Keep up the good work.
Best reel on the market. This reel is affordable and you can cast it a mile. Chris Snow McMinnville, Tn. ABU Garcia #1
Engineering master piece! The smoothest reel, light weight the ultimate package. The low profile make's this reel so comfortable to fish with. Everyone should have one!!
Great reel. What I expect from Abu Garcia products.
I really like this reel. It casts farther than any other reel I have ever owned. I really like the powerful drag. It is very smooth. The best part is it is affordable.
Just purchased one of these recently and have been very impressed. Build quality is fantastic, very smooth, should get years of use out of it. I mainly used shimano's before, but after using this reel, Abu Garcia all the way!
I have a pair of these reels and absolutely love them! By far the best baitcasting reel I've ever owned. Easy to use, no backlashes, and I can cast a country mile.
The revolution sx. Is the best reel on the market. It may be a little pricey but it out tested any other Kevin van or rick clunn or any curado reel. I use it to wacky worm. And I can't complain never backlashes and cast a 3/8 ounce jig over 30 yards
