Revo SX Spinning – Super-Smooth, No Fatigue
Friday, February 01, 2013
When the Abu Garcia design team thought about what made a great reel, two things came to mind – cutting edge design and advanced performance features. The new Abu Garcia Revo SX spinning reel connects on both points. The C6 carbon body gives anglers a lighter reel that can be fished all day without fatigue and the Carbon Matrix hybrid system creates a super-smooth, reliable drag.
The Revo SX is equipped with a machined-aluminum, braid-ready spool and Everlast bail system that delivers extended life and improved durability. Slow oscillation of the spool provides even line lay whether anglers choose mono, fluorocarbon or braided lines. The handle features a flat EVA knob for great control and comfort.
A one-piece gear box provides precise gear alignment for smooth operation. For optimum corrosion resistance, the Revo SX features eight stainless steel HPCR (High Performance Corrosion Resistant) bearings, plus one roller bearing and a stainless steel main shaft.
Here are some specs on the four models available:
> The SX10 weighs 7.4 ounces and has a gear ratio of 5.2:1, spooling 25 inches of line per turn of the handle with a spool capacity of 110 yards of 4-pound test mono or 125 yards of 6-pound test braid.
> Model SX20 weighs 8.3 ounces, has a gear ratio of 5.1:1 spooling 27 inches of line with a spool capacity of 135 yards of 4-pound test mono/125 yards of 8-pound braid.
> The 8.9-ounce SX30 model has a gear ratio of 5.8:1 that takes in 33 inches of line per crank. Spool capacity for the SX30 is 125 yards of 6-pound test mono/125 yards of 10-pound braided line.
> Rounding out the four models is the 10.2-ounce SX40 with a gear ratio of 5.8:1 that takes in 33 inches of line per crank. It has a spool capacity of 125 yards of 8-pound mono/125 yards of 14-pound braided line.
The sleek red/black finish on the Revo SX make it an ideal match for the new and improved Abu Garcia Vendetta rods. The reel can be configured for right- or left-hand retrieve.
The MSRP for all models is $159.95. To learn more about the Revo SX Spinning, including a video that details its features, click here.
