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 product great customer service
Awesome reel at an awesome price!! This is my first high quality bait caster and I can definitely tell the difference!! Cast and retrieves like a dream!!
- FORGET THE MONEY - THIS IS A GREAT REEL PERIOD!!
Great reel for the price. I have the REVO MGX, which is a $300 reel. The STX has one more bearing and if my eyes were closed, I wouldn't be able to tell which I had in my hand. Very smooth operation and if you're a "poor working man" like myself, you can still fish like a pro!!!
This is an excellent baitcaster! I've read many reviews on the reel, seeing many satisfied and some not so satisfied in the reel performance. My review is a definate "thumbs up"!. I own several baitcasters, 4 Abu's (ProMax2, Revo S, Revo SX, Revo STX) and 3 Shimanos (2 Curados, 1 Chronarch). This STX is my most recent purchase, and the reel has immediately become my favorite! It has taken over the role my Chronarch once held as my go to rig. This reel is on my worm/jig rod, which gets about 60% of my fishing time.
The reel is light, comfortable in my (smaller) hands, and operates perfectly. Line capacity is very good, it casts very well, and is buttery smooth on the retrieve. The brake system is very good, combining centrifugal and magnetic brakes for maximum casting distance an control. I've read negative reviews on the brakes, claims of difficult adjustment of the brakes. Not in my case at all. The brake combo allows for a vast amount of control, everything from weightless Senkos and small soft plastics to heavy tubes and jigs. The reel handles everything I rig up with no issues. I've used just the centrifugals, just the mag brakes, and a variety of combinations in both still and windy conditions. I rarely get any backlashes.
The Abu drag system really can't be beat. The STX drag is smooth and consistant all throughout its range. The reel has handled both small and large bass with ease. I landed a 9 pounder my third time out with the reel, and I am very impressed with the drags operation.
The bearing system is very good, giving a very smooth feel on both cast and retrieve. I opened the reel up and cleaned/lubed everything prior to first use. I don't know if that made any difference, but the STX has been just about perfect. The grease port on the Revo's is awesome, allowing quick service after each use without the need to dismantle the whole reel (a lesson to be learned, Shimano).
Overall, the STX has proven to be an excellent performer in the time I've had it. I've landed many a bass already, and look forward to many more. A great reel to be sure.
