    So my fiance made me a deal that if I quit smoking she will buy me a rod and reel of my choice. The rod is going to be a 7'2" M power Carrot Stick. I just wanted some opinions on the reel. I have 1 SX right now with 6.4:1 ration on a 7' MH Bionic Blade and love the way it casts and retrieves. I was just wondering if the STX is really worth 30 bucks more?? I really like the Revo series reels and want to stick with Abu.
  2. I have a right hand STX with box and all the papers. I used it two times and confirmed that I like a round reel much better than a low profile. Already spooled with line. I have stripped out the factory lube and redid the reel with Quantum hot sauce oil and grease. I'll give it to you shipped for $165 the same cost as the SX.

  3. Thats not a bad deal !! The stx is a great real.
  4. Just my 2 cents, but I'm happy with my SX series reels. I'm sure the whole line of Revo's are great, I just like sticking with something I know already works. Best of luck.
