Enjoy smooth, reliable operation and versatile castability at an exceptional value with the Abu Garcia Revo SX Spinning Fishing Reel.

This spinning reel is lighter than previous generations of the Revo SX but still maintains the series’ signature rigidity.

Combining an X-Craftic gearbox design with a C6 carbon body, the reel’s IM-C6 design maintains perfect gear alignment even under serious duress–giving you the leverage you need to outlast hard-pulling fish.

The reel is also engineered for precise casting. Its slow oscillation delivers an even line lay, while its Rocket Spool Lip design actively controls the rate at which the line comes off the spool to ensure greater casting accuracy.

This castability pairs perfectly with the reel’s Rocket Line Management System, which provides added control no matter what type of fishing line you’re using.

Anglers can also use braid without worry of slippage thanks to the machined aluminum braid ready spool, which allows braid to be tied directly to the spool.

Featuring a computer-optimized gear design and a durable AMGearing system, this spin reel offers unparalleled smoothness and durability.

The Carbon Matrix drag system delivers smooth yet robust drag across the entire drag range, while the K-Clutch anti-reverse bearing keeps handle backplay to a minimum to ensure interruption-free cranking. And with its Everlast bail system, corrosion-resistant stainless steel main shaft, and HPCR bearings, this durable spinning reel is designed to withstand years of use.

    Wow! This was my first premium Abu Garcia reel purchase and I could not be more impressed. Highly recommend. About a year back while wandering one of the sports stores I came across a really nice Abu Garcia spinning pole that had been placed on sale. I picked it up, took it home and forgot about it. Then a few months later I found it in the garage and I aimed to get a decent AG reel on it. After looking up and down the AG line I decided on this model in 30. I mostly fish cut squid off of piers in Southern California. I decided to spool this up with some Spyder Wire #20 line in high visibility neon yellow. I use different leaders naturally for whatever I’m going after. Anyway, I couldn’t be more impressed the casting, handling and the smooth cranking. Great feel, great weight, great balance, super smooth retrieval. And I’ve landed some decent weight halibut and sharks with this combo so I know the gears inside can handle a hefty fish. Anodizing looks amazing. I am super happy with this purchase. Was it a little bit more pricey? Yes. But after handling it for a while now I have zero complaints, I would buy it again.

    Wow how do i begin to review such a perfect spinning reel. The casting distance is top notch for a spinning reel and very accurate for a spinning setup because the line comes off so smooth. The drag is outstanding it allows you to fish a lighter test fluorocarbon compared to a 60# braid so casting is a breeze. Everything about this reel is smooth and I reccomend it to anyone looking for a nice nearly perfect ree. If this helped please click that i was helpful. Happy Fishing

    I like the reel, but I found it prone to wind knots. It is forcing me to become more methodical and hands on with my cast and retrieve. Clicking the bail closed with the handle is not recommended. Close the bail by hand and ensure a loop free spool (after pulling out line for a quality presentation). It becomes second nature and you will end up doing it with all your poles. So, it’s good and bad. Forces a better presentation of the bait on the fall but requires a change of muscle memory.Edit: Spooled with Power Pro Spectra Hi-Vis 10 lb braid with a 6’ Stren Fluoro Leader 10 lbSo, apparently, by upgrading my fishing characteristics I have increased productivity. No wind knots and more ability to drop a bait on a slack line. Excellent Reel!

    Typical Abu-Garcia engineering and quality. Paired with a Fenwick 6’9″ HMG-MLF rod for finesse bass and multi-species.Very well balanced and incredibly smooth. If you use any of the Abu-Garcia spinning reels do yourself a favor and select a quality super-line like Nanofil or Spiderwire Fluoro-Braid.Better quality and features than some $200+ reels.Do wish that A-G would throw in a spare spool with the Revo SX product, considering the price point.

    This reel is impressive. I’m super pleased with its smooth well balanced operation. All in all I’d say it performs way over its price-point.I’ve paired it with a Daiwa TXT701MFS Tatula XT, 7 foot, Medium Power, Fast Action rod for drop shot and Senko fishing. Works perfect. Guntersville is my home lake so when the lilly pads, hydrilla, and heavy grass comes in i’ll probably go to a heavier rod and 50 – 65lb braid. Right now I’m running 20lb braid and a leader. I’m sure the reel will be fine for that application also.

    This reel glides spinners through the water without tearing up your arms. The drag is a dream, had the pleasure of a few 5 minute trout battles on barbless hooks this last weekend.

    Awesome Reel. The more expensive of the Abu Garcia reels that I’ve bought. I ended up having to use this out at the ocean fishing for rockcod. I put 65lb braid on, and caught two days of limits. I know it’s not meant for that lineweight, but it worked like a champ. Very nice.

    Bought 2 and one was hard to reel if slowed out of box. Also bought a Orra SX and same thing. No more Abu spinning reels for me. Its a shame because I have several baitcasters in different models with no issues.

    Die Rolle ist sehr Solide aufgebaut. In der Hand fühlt sie sich sehr Wertig an. Optisch sieht sie auch sehr gut aus. Wie sie auf Dauer läuft wird sich zeigen.
