I'm a diehard shimano fan but that doesn't make me an exclusive shimano fan.  found a revo sx @ local tackle store for $100.  6.4 :1.  I was thinking about moving this reel to the rod I use for lipless cranks and taking the curado e5 off and making it my deep cranks and wobble head set up.  how does everyone like the sx.  all opinions welcome

i have a SX , got to say i love it ! it is the 7.1:1 reel tho , but just the same , it is a very smooth , excellent casting reel . 6.4:1 is a very versatile gear ratio ( i have that gear ratio on my INSHORE) for a hundred bucks , i would definitely go for it

I have no experience with the older SX, but the newer SX are just as a good as an equivalent shimano, Smooth, powerful drag.  But I love both brands equally, I have Calcutta TE's and Revo SX's so I can't complain with either.

Weren't the only differences between the old SX and the new one purely cosmetic? Bent handle/drag star and some red added?

I think the magnetic brakes and the spool were tweaked.

they moved to the "infini II" spool design and reconfigured the magnets, making them stronger. IIRC, the new SX has two rows of magnets now instead of one.

I just picked up 2 of them from area Walmarts for $74 each. They didnt have any boxes but I felt the deal was worth it.

Good buy. I also owned that reel and really liker it for throwing spooks a mile. I had mine on a MBR724c and really liked the set up.
