Goose 21. What's the biggest fish you've caught with it?

I use it to sling topwater baits, paired it with a veritas. Pb on it is 5lbs, handles just fine.

I've got a Revo S that's a few years old. Lots of miles, fish, and abuse on it. Had to replace the pawl bearing this winter and had it supertuned also, feels even better than new now.

If all people did was use the search feature and not "discuss" things on a "discussion forum" it'd be a boreing place! So welcome and ask anything!

To answer your question: Yes, I have two of the new ones. Not sure if your asking about the Gen 1 & 2 which are silver or the Gen 3 which is the new black and white one. I have the Gen 3's

It is by far one of my favorite reels I own. The breaking system is 2nd to none to learn how to start with a baitcaster. Easy to operate and smooth as all get out. The very 1st ones had some gear grinning issues but it was taken care of ASAP.

I am running one on a 7' M Micro Veritas and it will cast a small top water out past 40 yards if the conditions are good. For the price it's hard to beat too.

If you go to bass pros page, I have a full review with pictures on the new S. it's the featured review for it.

You cant go wrong. I love mine and provided it proves ts self down the road, will be in my arsenol for ever.

I have three that are 2, 4, and 6 years old. My favorite reel. Extremely smooth and easy to adjust. I'm sure the new model is of the same quality, or even better.

I have two Revo S reels and love them. One is the white finish. Got it paired up with a Veritas. Just ordered a Revo SX. Hope it's nice as well. They ought to paint a 3 on the side and rename it the Intimidator!

Which generation?  There's 3 -

1 - had the six pin brakes

2 - had the 3 and 3 spring-loaded pin brakes

3 - the current black and white

 

1 and 2 were identical except for the modified braking.  I have a bunch of those and it's a work-horse reel.

Im taking a cross country trip next week.  I'll be stopping by a basspro or cabelas and picking one up along the way.   Gonna put it on the veritas rod I just ordered.
