Abu Garcia® Revo® STX Low Profile is rated out of 5 by 175.
Rated 5 out of 5 by skie from so simple just purchased the stx and its my first baitcaster infact, ive never even attempted to cast a baitcaster before in my life. i was nervous at 1st but after a little thumb pratice from my couch i went out to make my 1st cast. with the mag break on max and the cent on 3 i made about a 20 yard cast. after that i slowly turned the mag break down and after 15 mins i have the mag break half way off. you really can feel the magnetic break kick in at the end of the cast. casting is a dream and cant wait to use it all summer. and i still havent had backlash ! i got the 8.0:1 gear ratio for spinnerbaits and man does this thing burn. covers water like no other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lunker1 from THE BEST BAITCASTER I am a tournament fisherman and bass fishing guide. This is the reel I use for my tournaments and I am extremely happy with it. I have many reels by many manufacturers and have been using baitcasters for over 40 years. By far this is the best reel I have ever used. It is comfortable in my hand, light weight, casts easily and farther than others, and rarely do I have backlashes. There are times I espected to get a backlash (throwing into the wind, etc.) but I still did not get them. I have not used the newer Premier models but I cannot believe I would be happier than with this reel. I stopped looking for a better real when I started purchasing this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biggest Bass of My Life! Thank You ABU Garcia! Been using your equipment for years! Paid off big a few weeks ago - Caught this fish in south Mississippi where I live. 11.5 pounds, 26.5 inch length, 19.5 inch girth. Biggest Bass of my life. Caught using my REVO STX reel and AMB 661M rod on June 27th. Been using 5500C3s for years and many of my fishing partners have gone to Daiawa and other low profile reels. Always depended on my Ambassadeurs and hated to leave you so saved money and bought the REVO. If rod or reel hadn't done it's job or drag had not been smooth she most certainly would have broken my line! Anyway, thanks again for you excellent products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1214 from My new favorite reel! I really wanted to try a Revo reel when they first were introduced. I finally broke down and bought a Revo STX-L-HS. From the first day, I have been in love with the smooth consistent performance. The reel has a velvet transition from casting to reeling without a clunky feel in the spool engagement. The casting controls are easy to use and make the reel very backlash resistant. The light weight and balance of the reel help to make a great combo with the Denali Jadewood worm and jig rod I paired with it. Overall, my Revo has become one of the first combos I pull from the rod locker to start my day on the water. It is my favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, powerful, smooth, long casts, I bought the revo stx a couple months ago and I can't say enough about it. I fish pretty much every day and I fish mainly for largemouth, pike, and walleye. I have about 7 baitcast reels ranging from $80- $300 and I can honestly say I have a hard time bringing any other reel out to the water now. The stx casts extremely far and handles like a dream. I hooked a big pike two days ago on Stoney Creek Lake and my stx had no problem at all showing that pike who's boss. You can tell just by holding it in your hand that this reel is quality. Great job Abu Garcia, cant wait for the new line of revos. William, Rochester hills, Michigan

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris from Cast and feels great, Thumb bar sticking after two trips This reel looks, feels, and cast great, but the thumb bar is sticking after 2 trips. The Casting and smothness is really incredible but, I purchased this a few weeks ago and I am really disappointed in the quality control Abu Garcia has been having the last few years. I am a dedicated Abu fisherman but this is a huge disappointment. I bought this reel in the new 8.1:1 gearing and was really looking forward to putting this reel to the test, but that opportunity hasn't presented itself, due to the failure. This makes me worry about the direction Abu Garcia is going with the manufacturing of high end reels in the asian markets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite fishing reel I bought a Revo STX hs rh retrieve to fish bottom contact baits like worms and jigs.I have it paired with a berkley series one rod and this setup works quite well for me.The casting is smooth.I have it rated at a 4 in that respect.I really like its size and shape as it fits my hand nicely when palming.The drag is quite smooth.I use this rod to fish for bass but hooked into a 13# striped bass and the runs the fish made were quite easy to control.The 7.1 gear ratio also allows me to get in more casts when fishing as I can bring in lots of line per crank.It is also nice to pull bass away from the heavy cover I fish in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from River steelhead and Salmon Slayer I now have Two STX's...one of the older , flat handle, and one of the new swept handle 7.1. AWESOME...AWESOME...I fish steelhead and salmon from the bank in the PNW in Washington State. I have had two occations where guys casting spinning reels ask me.."how are you casting farther than me with a level wind?"....then I show them the magic. I sold my Shimano curado to buy my fist STX. The drag is WAY better...the reel is smoother and stronger. I also have a Toro 51 for larger salmon and steelhead for the line capacity. Love the Revos...CAN'T go wrong. Wait longer and save up if you have to. Don't settle...this reel will last you a lifetime. Nuff said. Steelhead Nation NWWC...out.
