REVO STX????

18 posts in this topic

Anyone using the STX out there??? If so, do you like it???? I think I need to drop the hammer on this one. A new reel and a free pair of Wiley-X glasses sounds like to good a deal to pass up....

I have two of the STX and one of the STX Premier. I really like these reels. I haven't had any problems with mine and they are nice and compact and lightweight. I think that it is a heck of a deal that they have going on right now with the Wiley-X glasses.

I got an STX. I freakin' love it!

Even though I don't mess with them much, I prefer the magnetic adjustments to the weight system Shimano and others use on the secondary free-spool adjustment.

I beleive everyone who carries the revo style reel will be offerring the sunglasses deal. Purefishing usually sends their promotional stuff to every company that carries their product. They have a lot of promotional stuff going on throughout their whole product line including money back for buying their plastics, tools, line and some green bags to store gulp alive in if you buy X amount of green buckets...

Believe it or not I bought one last year for musky fishing. It worked great in two situations. First, for women and children who really have trouble with the bigger outfits. And second, for me! Because of the amount of musky fishing that I do, I really have trouble with the joints and muscles in my left arm. The "switch up" really helped me to cope on long days. And the Revo performed well. We didn't have any issues with it handling the muskies, and actually, it made for a better fight using the lighter gear. I used the Revo on the lighter Fenwick Techna. Actually, it burns those little bucktails pretty good. I'm sure you'll like it.

What glasses do you guys like the best??? I see you can order either the PT-17 or Slyde....I ordered the Slyde's, but kinda hard to tell which ones look and feel the best by looking at a picture of them.

I was going back and forth I went with the slyde but I think the p-17 are worth a little more $ right now.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
