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.

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
