Utilizing a combination of advanced materials and a new compact design, the Revo® STX weight has been reduced over 2.5 ounces. That’s a 29% weight reduction over the previous model! The reduction in weight, combined with the new EVA knobs allows you to fish all day with less fatigue. An upgraded X2- Cräftic™ alloy frame provides more advanced corrosion protection and the sideplates are constructed from weight reducing C6 Carbon.
The more powerful D2 Gear System in the Revo STX features the widest range of ratios in the Revo family with 6.4:1, 7.1:1 and a new super high speed 8.0:1 ratio model that pulls in a blistering 33 inches per turn of the handle. The combination of a Magnetic Brake and sealed Centrifugal Brake allow almost limitless adjustment with the Infini Brake System. The centrifugal brake controls the first half of the cast when the spool is rotation at its maximum speed. Once the spool slows, the magnetic brake then acts on the spool to keep it under control during the last half of the cast.
- 10 stainless steel ball bearings + 1 roller bearing provides smooth operation
- X2-Craftic alloy frame for increased corrosion resistance
- C6 carbon sideplates provide significant weight reduction without sacrificing strength and durability
- Carbon Matrix drag system provides smooth, consistent drag pressure across the entire drag range
- D2 Gear Design provides a more efficient gear system while improving gear durability
- Infini brake system allows almost limitless adjustability to handle any fishing situation
- Infini II spool design for extended castability and extreme loads
- Compact bent handle and star provide a more ergonomic design
- Ti coated line guide reduces friction and improves durability

- Great reel!!! You will not be disappointed
I already had 5 of these reels for 3 years and there still as smooth as new. I live on a lake so I fish a bunch of days a year. This is an awesome price for these reels, you will not be disappointed!!!!!
- Best of the Best!
The smoothness of this reel just blew me away! Fits my hand like a glove and makes long distance casting and retrieving a breeze. Hope to add a couple more to my gear "reel" soon! Thanks so much for a "Perfect 10" reel!
- Great reel for a great price. Worth every penny!
This reel is smooth as silk and has great cast control. I now own 12 of these reels. I was fishing with Shimano Curado's until I tried one of these reels. ALFC is a great company to do business with, great prices and fast shipper. Thanks.
- Great tool great price
The reel holds up, and does not let me down, cast great, drag is awesome. I can fish braid or Mono or Flouracarbon heavy and light . Revo STX just never lets me down
- Totally awesome
Great real great price fast shipping thanks will buy from you guys in the future
- Buy the SX if you can't find the STX on a discount...
The build quality and feature set of the Revo STX is worthy of five stars. However, with an MSRP of $199.99, I am hard-pressed to find where the STX accels when compared to its little brother, the Revo SX (MSRP $159.99). Both are outstanding reels. The main difference between the two is in the braking system. The STX uses a combined magnetic and centrifugal brake system, whereas the SX makes use of only a magnetic system. In other applications from other manufacturers, there can be a real difference between the two. However, in the comparison between the STX and SX, I find no appreciable difference. Both throw light lures easily and cast heavier lures quite far, and have quality braking systems which reduce backlashes.
The STX also has one more bearing, and comes with EVA foam grips. For my money, the few "upgrades" are not worthy of an additional $40.
This leads me to my conclusion: If you can find it for a discount (as is offered here at American Legacy) then BUY IT! If not, you will be equally satisfied with the Revo SX. Both are very high quality reels.
