Rated 5 out of 5 by Falcon13 Left my wife for the Revo STX!
This reel is the smoothest reel I own. I own a Curado, Revo 3S and a Lews TP, so I can honestly compare the Revo stx to the competition. It is my go to reel and the best of the bunch. If you have ever used a dual braking system it is great once dialed in and will cast forever. This reel out cast all my reels and will even cast into the wind. My one complaint is the tension knob for the spool. To have any effect on lure drop you really have to put some effort tightening it down. This has created some negative buzz by reviewers. However, with the dual brakes you do not need the tension knob to dial in your lure. I tend to just tighten it enough to eliminate side play in the spool in all my reels anyway. Otherwise an amazing reel and if you buy one congratulations you will fall in love!
