The FUTURE is here now.
What has a tight, firm, smooth, wonderful body with great curves and feels simply amazing in your hands? .... Hmmmm, if you guessed a Revo SX low profile baitcasting reel then you'd be right.
The Revo SX is absolutely the best performing, best balanced, and best looking reel you can possibly buy at this price point. Fishing reels get absolutely abused by getting dropped in the boat, dunked in the lake, rained on, baked in the sun, crammed into rod lockers, stepped on, kicked around, and act as collection areas for all of the grime that clings to your line cast after cast reeled in and then deposited around the level wind and worm gear ... and most fishermen rarely take the time to properly clean and maintain their reels. However, when you roll with Abu Garcia you're rolling with gear that is engineered to withstand the rigors of bass fishing and excel. The Revo SX is built to accept the fight, finish the fight, and win ready to go again when called upon. The Revo SX ... here now and built for the future.

There's been a bunch of great reviews on this reel already. I'll just add that I've been a lifelong Team Diawa user, but they really don't offer anything I think competes with this reel at this price point. Now that I've been using this for a while, I'm going to be an AVID Abu user from here on out. I've got a spare rod I may even get a Pro Max for. Bottom line, this reel is awesome and casts and retrieves like butter. And the size of it feels good in the hand.. I will say, stay away from the Vendetta rod though. I was looking at getting one because it matches the SX and I dropped it in the store and about the last foot of the rod snapped clean off. I paired this with a TFO Gary Loomis signature 6'6" MH and could not be happier with my Revo.

Best Reel Ever Made!!!!!
I have been trophy bass fishing my whole life and have had every brand and model reel you can imagine. I fish three full days a week and all i can say is I'm HOOKED on Abu Garcia!!! I bought the REVO SX-HS a little over a week and was stunned by the low price? so i asked to see the box it comes in from behind the counter. As i was reading i realized that this reel had everything on it. This weekend i took it out and strung it with fluorocarbon, then put it on the already great Abu VERITAS rod(which by the way is amazing) and off i went. Over the course of the first two days i caught over 30 largemouth bass. The bass were ranging from 1-4 pounds and the reel handled amazing, very smooth. Now like many of you I always want to know how a reel is going to handle with real weight on it! well...I got to find out!! I caught a 7 1/4 pound a 6 1/2 pound and another 6 pounder. All i can say is WOW this reel will pull trophy bass with ease, never once backlashed, casts extremely far and to make it better i stripped it in less than a minute. I am going to post a picture with this post of the 7 1/4 pounder that came gliding in because of this amazing reel. If you are thinking about buying this reel, it will be worth every penny you spend I Promise!!!

Don't let the size fool you
This is one solid reel. I drift fishing mostly here in BC Canada. I used to use abu round reels a lot. Don't get me wrong, I love them but it's just too heavy for me after a day of casting. The revo sx is light, and small. It's not as cold as the round ones made of metal if you palm it for whole day hunting for winter run steelhead. It's got stronger drag yet more than enough line capacity!
Just don't let the size and weight fool you! Thanks Abu for such a quality and affordable product!
