Utilizing a combination of advanced materials and a new compact design, the Abu Garcia Revo® STX Baitcasting Reel weight has been reduced over 2.5 ounces. That’s a 29% weight reduction over the previous model!
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.
