Lightweight and strong for hours of fishing, the Revo S has a one-piece X-Cräftic alloy frame, a graphite stem and polymetric body and rotor. Internally, a one-piece gearbox with a Duragear brass gear allows for more precise alignment.

Other features include a machined aluminum, braid-ready spool so you can tie braid directly to the reel without it slipping, Everlast bail system, six stainless steel HPCR (High Performance Corrosion Resistant) bearings plus one roller bearing and a stainless steel main shaft and components. A Carbon Matrix hybrid drag system creates a super smooth and reliable drag, while the slow oscillation of the spool provides even line lay whether you choose mono, fluorocarbon or braided lines.

  • 27 turns per inch
  • Spool capacity, mono: eight pounds, 130 yards
  • Spool capacity, braid: eight pounds, 190 yards
  • Weighs in at 8.2 ounces
