Abu Garcia Revo Sx Casting Reel -
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.
Besides being one of the fastest low-profile reels, the Revo SX was also one of the best reviewed by customers. Never content to find themselves in second place, Abu Garcia raised the stakes with this next-generation SX. Using advanced materials, reel designers took the lightweight low profile design to the next level, achieving overall weight reduction of up to 27%. They lowered the overall height to create a more compact design and ergonomic feel. A wider Infini II™ spool further improves casting performance and maintains line capacity without increasing the overall width of the reel. The next generation of Duragear™ creates a stronger gear system for enhanced efficiency and precision performance on the water. Nine stainless steel ball bearings and one roller bearing deliver smooth operation. X2 Craftic™ alloy frame increases corrosion resistance. C6 carbon-handle sideplate reduces weight without sacrificing strength and durability. Carbon Matrix™ drag system ensures smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range. MagTrax™ brake system allows consistent brake pressure throughout the cast. Ti-coated line guide reduces friction and improves durability. Ergonomic, compact bent handle and star.

My Revo

I received my Abu Garcia Revo SX HS and immediately attached it to the rod I bought just for it. It hugged the rod like a dream. It is small and light weight, but still has a nice spool capacity. It is a beauty to look at, and my brother named it, “the Nightmare” because of the colors on the reel, and the fear it brings to the fish.
Smooth as cream right out of the box, with nice level of lube (sometimes you need to add after you unbox). The tune up was easily taken care of, and the brakes setting was simple. For those of you who have read reviews about the difficulty of adjusting this reel, have no worries. Simply set the brake at zero, adjust the tension knob to proper setting, then re set the brakes to where you like them starting a max working way to proper brake level( often people do not do tune in this fashion, and wonder why they have a problem). The spool capacity is nice for a reel of this size, and spins perfect on its bearings.
What I did not like about this reel(and other Abu reels), was the plastic tension knobs. After using these reels over time, they wear out and need to be replaced. They are cheap though, and replacing them is a breeze. Another thing was the clutch bar. It is a little stiff, and makes it harder to engage with the pad of your thumb. With getting used to I found it not to be that much of an issue. The last thing I didn’t like, and which gave it 4 instead of 5 stars, was the little play between the gear box and handle. It isn’t much and shouldn’t discourage you from buying this reel.
After many years of fishing with Abu spinning reels, I am happy to switch from another casting brand to Abu, for my bass fishing needs.

All you need.

I have higher dollar reels that are great. but If I was on a budget I would buy several of these and be very happy. It is all you need. Very solid reel for a great price.

Not bad

This is a ok reel if you don't cast hard. With just a magnetic brake this one will backlash on you. If you don't put much arm into it you will be ok. I like the S better which has a centrifugal brake and is less money. Or the STX which has both.
