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.

    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
    • Here's the exact reason why I encourage everyone to buy the digital readout.  After getting holes drilled and everything setup, I always run my bathroom roof fan/vent to get rid of the moisture as the slush on the floor gets melted.  Yesterday I cranked the fan on max which moves some serious air, but I forgot to crack a window, which caused it to actually suction the CO from my water heater back into the house through a propane line pass through.  I looked up and saw 30ppm on the CO detector, which isn't high, but an indicator that something wasn't right.  All it took was cracking a window and turning down the fan for a minute and it was back to 0.  
    • You do realize the person you wanted to be president couldn't even understand the proper protocol for setting up a cabinet level email account don't you?    
    • I looked into fiberglass a few years back for a build.  I decided against it as it needed a wood backer.  Not sure if there is a different product out there now.  
    • finally got out Friday, put on 75 miles in the heavy drizzle, not the first time I have riden in the rain. the trails were OK, I rode in aitkin co. that doubles the miles I put on in the last two years.
    • they load tested the battery and said it was bad, everything else they said was fine, they put in a new battery. tried it today after sitting since Tuesday, and it started up fine, problem fixed.   I have a 2002 grizz carbed, and that sat for close to 3 months, went to start it this weekend, and it cranked for at least a minute (very cold blooded machine) and it started, it has the same battery that's in the Polaris.
