So far so goodShipping was fast.
I've mated this rod to a St. Croix TIC66MHF, with the hopes of using it for kayak fishing, tautog, flounder, sea bass. and even light trolling. I hope the 20lbs of drag will come in handy for these purposes.
So far I've used it once, and am very happy with how smooth the reel is, though I'm still getting used to casting with a baitcaster.
One big disappointment for me is the stock handle, I instantly upgraded to the Ambassadeur power handle. I found the existing handle to be too small to comfortably work with.

I currently have 4 of these revos and am very impressed with the durability and quality of the reel for the price. I am a competitive collegiate bass fisherman so I need to find products with at a good price but are still able to handle the wear that tournament fishing puts on my reels. These reels are relatively light and castable and offer enough power to pull big bass out of thick cover. I've noticed this reel can get a little "sticky" with use, but a quick cleaning usually does the trick and it works good as new. Overall, this is a great reel that hasnt let me down during competition and I've been able to successfully pull in anything from a 40 inch musky to a 5 pound bass under a laydown in with this reel.

One of the Best in the Revo FamilyI love this Revo. I have about 5 of them as well as several STX's, a winch, and S models. The Revo SX brings great casting distance, smooth handling, and great durability!

Abu Garcia is the bestLet me start with my first abu ever. I purchased a 5500c3 over 10 years ago while I was in the navy, that reel is still in use to this day. I have pulled many salmon and steelhead out of the river over the years. My second abu I purchased 3 years ago and fell in love with the low profile design of the black max, and again I have caught many steelhead with this reel and is still in use today. I bought a new revo3 sx the other day and this reel is the best one yet. I tagged out on steelhead the day I used it and it performed beautifully. I will always buy abu garcia for my fishing poles they are a great reel for a decent price. I have a Daiwa 100TSH reel that I am sending back to the company cause it broke down on me while fishing the river, I would not recommend any Daiwa reel. They are fairly expensive and are cheaply made.

Wouldn't get anotherI've bought two of these reels and had problems with both of them. After sending them off and paying for them to be fixed one is alright and my other one is still having problems. After paying for the reel and having problems with it and then paying to get it fixed and it's still messing up, I won't be getting any more. I'm about to swap all my reels over to a new company and be done with Abu.

Abu Garcia For Life!I've had my reel for over a year and can say "it's the best reel I own up to date!". I've caught 6lb + large mouth and the drag is incredibly smooth! It's never failed me and I highly recommend this reel!

NEWER MODELS TOO LIGHTBought this Revo SX two years ago. The thumb bar sticks and stays in free spool. Sent in to repair shop twice. They say its not as well made as earlier models. I have two other older Revo SX and never had a problem. I think they are making them too light to hold up.
