Rated 5 out of 5 by Iraser from Great Reel! I received this reel for Christmas and have fished over 20+ hours with it from today(12/31/14) since 12/25. The precise braking has made me easily master a variety of casts, with, along, and against the wind. The weight of the lures seems irrelevant, as I'm casting my light weight rigs farther than I have ever before. I'm fairly experienced with baitcasters, but would recommend this reel to someone who has never used one before due to the ease and precision of the brakes. My last baitcaster lasted about 10 years (Abu Garcia model as well), I am hopeful this one will also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by erios from First baitcaster I bought the Revo SX because of the reviews I read and what a great choice I made. This is my first baitcaster and I wanted one that was easy to use and lightweight. The gears are very smooth and the drag held up beautifully. I took it out on a 3/4 day boat ocean fishing and the guy next to me laughed because I brought a lake reel to the ocean. Well when I caught the most fish on the boat and the jackpot winning barracuda, he asked about the reel and apologized. It's also easy to clean! I love this reel...

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMan from Smooth as silk This reel is the first reel I have ever used that made me smile. I was so impressed with the quality that I felt in my hand. Casting was a absolute pleasure. It was so quiet. Casting and retrieving made me feel in control of any weight of lure I decided to use. No slack in the handle, it is solid as a rock. It doesn't have the extra magnets for the end of the cast that has been brought out in the past few years. But, it is almost beyond words just how nice it is. Be conscious of setting your reel to the weight of the lure and backlashes are seldom if any at all. So all I can say is, buy the best reel on the market under $50 and get this beauty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob from Best baitcaster $ for $ I was a shimano guy for years and about a year ago I got to use a friends Revo SX and I fell in love with it. I fish about 80 days a year including roughly 15 tournaments and I can't get enough of these reels. I've sold every curado I owned and since have purchased 6 Revo SX's. They are great for crankbaits, flipping, plastics, basically versatile! I pair them with Veritas and now the Villain, just all around wonderful purchase and do not see myself ever going anywhere else for reels. Obviously I'd love to spend a little less but they are worth every penny. If you are in the market for a new baitcaster, go buy one.. You will not be sorry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the "BEST" I have been fishing ABU reels for over 30 years starting with the classic 5500c, Royal Plus, 1st gen Blackmax, and now the Revo series. You can always count on them do deliver a quality reel that will last a lifetime with proper preventive maintanence. I lube my reels once a year and NEVER has one of my ABU's failed me. Recently one of my fishing buddies talked me into another brand and boy was I disappointed. NO comparison to the ABU!!! So if you looking for a new baitcast do waste your hard earned money on any other brand! ABU's cast farther, reel smoother, have stronger drags and last longer than any other brand bar none at any price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassyakker from UNBELIEVABLE!!! I have owned four other baitcasters made by four different companies. The Revo SX is by far an amazing piece of work. My spinning rig is going in a garage sale cuz this Revo SX can cast a weightless worm on 12 lb flourocarbon just as far as my spinning reel with 8 lb mono! It's easy to adjust, casts like a dream, reels in super smooth. Wish i had an Abu Garcia when i first started using a baitcaster. The brass gears sold me on this reel. Can't wait for a left hand retrieve MGX! Although I just might get another Revo SX if you don't make one. Love this reel. Rookies to pros this is one amazing reel. Light smooth fun to cast. You guys got me for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HawgHunter from love my SX! well this reel is by far the best I have ever used let alone owned. I have been throwin Huddleston delux 8inch baits with it like its the thing to do with 20 pound big game mono I almost bever get back lash and it hasnt skipped a beat yet. I have the 2012 or 2011 edition of this reel but its perfect. I just ordered an abu garcia 6601 C4 too put on my swim bait rod I did so alot because of the amount of libe the c4 will hold so my question is do any of you own the C4 and the revo SX? If so can you please do a comparison real fast for me? like does one cast better than the other is one stronger than the other stuff like that....

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1214 from Excellent performance and great all around reel. I matched up my new Revo SX on a Denali Jadewood Crankbait rod and use 10 lb mono. The Revo replaced a tired Bass Pro Extreme reel, and from the first cast, I knew it was a winner. I could cast the lightest of crankbaits much further than with the Extreme. Backlashes are almost non-existent with the correct braking and thumb control. I like the confidence and ability to cast into the wind and not worry about a backlash. The smoothnesss of the drag has allowed me to drop my line size choice down a few sizes now that I have greater control when fighting an angry fish. I now have three Revos and they are my only choice when it's time to buy. Great Job, Abu Garcia.
