The REVO S is the best $129 you could spend. I have both the gen 3 S and the STX, and both are amazing reels.


Which would you prefer?

The STX is more versatile with it's dual braking system so probably the stx just because you could flip and pitch with it easier. You can't go wrong either way though.

Agreed. For the 130 dollar mark, nothing compares

If I might jump in too, honestly I prefer the S. I don't use the mag breaks on my STX's at all. The S is super light too.

Yeah, it's a great deal, I think the s is what I'm going to go with. What would be a good rod to pair the S up with? Thanks!

Depends on a few things.

What type of fishing? What type of baits and how heavy.

What's your budget

I fish mostly for bass, I use all different lures but mostly hard baits, my weights range anywhere from 1/4 up to over an ounce. I would like to keep the budget at 100 or less.

Sounds like a 6'6"-7' MH rod with a fast action would be the happy medium for you. Kind of a do all rod.

At the 100 dollar point, I like the Veritas micro myself.

Shimano makes the Sellus for 50-60 range. Berkley has the lighting shock for 40 ish. They are good rods and are sold at Walmart so you can test them out.

Veritas micros at walmart.com for $70 all day. Great paired up with the S.

Would the veritas or the vendetta be a better fit for the s?

Veritas is a better rod than the vendetta. Plus the veritas looks and feels great paired with the S. Great, great combo.

I actually like the new Vendetta better than the Veritas. Feels better to me.
