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.

I've owned four Gen 1's and one Revo Inshore - love them (still have 3 of them - 1 I lost overboard :( ). The new Gen 3's at $99 is a steal considering you can add a decent rod in the $75-100 range and have an awesome setup that will last you many years. I also have a couple Shimanos that are every bit as good as well, The key is finding a reel that not only feels good on its own, but pairs up well and balances well with the rod you plan on using.

How much experience with a bait caster do you have?

 

The SX has mag breaks only. They are great for pitching and flipping, but an over all casting reel or work horse reel, I don't like them. They are also more difficult to use for a beginner.

 

The S has a sweet breaking system. You can fine tune it for any condition or application.

Great reel for the money. I have 2 of them that are Gen1 models and they are on their 7th year of abuse and still work great. I recently picked up a Gen3 model and from the little i've used it I have been very satisfied with it.

I bought mine on sale back in '08.  It is one of the smoothest reels I have ever used.

They are a great reel, maybe the best in it's price range. They are smooith and dependable. I have caught several Hybrids over 10 pounds and Flathead Catfish up to 40 pounds on mine out of the Ohio River.

For look feel and extras yes they are better. As for it holding up to the abuse year to year, we won't be able to know for awhile. I bought mine the day the hit the market about 6-7 months ago. No issues with mine so far.

I've been using a baitcaster for a bout 2 years now. What kind of distance do you get when casting with the S?
