Recommended Posts

I've been having a blast with mine. My only gripe is that you gotta crank the snot out of the tension cap to tighten the spool up. But even that is a minor thing. Plus, you're right, it's a good lookin sucker.

No problems with my tension cap. I did have that issue on my Gen 2 SX though. The STX is a great reel, can't say enough about it.

I'm buying all new rods so I gotta figure out what I want to dedicate it to I like my little collection o revos I'm gathering 2 revo S's 1 SX abd now a 3rd gen STX and a premier spinning.

How do you guys have your brakes set on the STX with the dual breaking.

I don't use the mags at all, and I only only have 2 of the spring loaded brakes engaged. Works well that way, especially for heavier baits.

That's what I was thinking also.

I use 1 or 2 centrifgual brakes usually, depending on the weight and how aerodynamic the bait is. Then I vary the mag brakes from 1/4-2/3, depending on wind, etc. I find the best performance from it when I mix the brake systems, but everyone is different.

+1 on the brake set-up except if Im casting with the wind or there is no wind I will turn the magnetic brake off. I mainly use the mag brakes to fine tune to the conditions.

I think I'm gonna pair or with a Veritas 6'9" MHF or XF and use it for soft jerk baits and other plastics but I mostly throw flukes when not flipping a jig or rage craw.
