What is it?
Abu Garcia’s new Revo SX, a newly redesigned low-profile baitcaster.
What does it do?
Fights fish with aplomb, and bombs baits a mile thanks to its dual braking system and supersmooth casting.
Why do I need it?
To see what you’ve been missing in the world of low-profile baitcasters.
How do I use it?
Like any old baitcaster, except a lot smoother and easier, thanks to 10 ball bearings.
What sets it apart?
This incarnation of the SX is 25 percent lighter than previous models, yet it’s also received a host of upgrades. The Carbon Matrix drag makes fighting fish a breeze, while the Infini II spool holds more line that you’ll ever need. It’s available in 6.4:1 and 7.1:1, the latter taking up 29 inches of line per turn of the reel handle. For added power, a D2 Gear system keeps things running smoothly when the pressure is on.
