The ABU Revo SX spinning reel series has received some fantastic improvements while still keeping the price accessible. The biggest news is the significant reduction in weight from previous models. A carbon body and one piece aluminium gear box have cut plenty from the overall weight but the strength and rigidity have been maintained. The styling is just superb. The dominant black, with a touch of grey and ‘look at me’ red trims give the Revo SX a serious sports appeal. The heavy rectangular porting in the spool enhances the sports look while also assisting with the reduction in unnecessary weight.
The Abu Garcia Revo SX spinning reel is targeted at the ultra-light to light sports fishing anglers. The SX10 and 20 will appeal to the finesse anglers while the SX30 and 40 will fit well with those wanting greater insurance against the appearance of big fish in the light sessions. The 30 and 40 will dominate the common species throughout the inshore waters, salt and Fresh. The latter, of course, will allow the angler to venture further afield and try some light sport action on the beach and rocks and outside the heads for snapper and smaller pelagic species. Spooled with mono or braid (line not included) your Abu Garcia Revo SX fishing reel will perform with sensitive, velvety smoothness. Spool capacities are generous, but those wanting to hit bigger species with a tendency to run long on light gear may find themselves better placed spooled with braid.
The ABU Revo SX spinning reel rRange is a joy to behold. AMGearing and 8 stainless bearings coupled with COG technology makes the Revo SX spin reel a pleasure to wind, particularly under the load of a significant fish. The quality, strength and durability are as bigger highlight as the improved weight. The Revo SX will sell like hotcakes. They’re for sale now, so get in early.

The Abu SX Fishing reel comes in a few sizes to choose from when ordering. The 10 or 20 size are the smallest options and would suit river and lake fishing mostly whether it be fresh or saltwater.
The 30 sized reel is still a small reel and suits much the same style of fishing but will provide you the option of extra line capacity or the ability to fish slightly heavier.
The 40 size is a medium sized reel and will suit heavier lake or river fishing to target large flathead, barramundi or mulloway for a couple of examples.
