With a signifigant weight reduction of over 2.5oz since the past Revo STX reels. Reduction in weight and new EVA knobs allow you as an angler to fish longer throughout the day with less fatigue.

When the spool slows, the magnetic brake than acts on the spool to keep it under control during the last half of the cast. So these reels are both durable and offer a lightweight alternative to heavier baitcasting reels.

Abu Garcia RVO3 STX-SHS
The absolute best Froggin' reel I've ever owned. Teamed with a St. Croix TBC74HF Slop-N-Frog/Swim Jig rod and 50# Sufix 832 braid. This reel will throw a hollow body Frog out of site. Unreal power for a ultra-high speed reel. Smoothest reel I own hands down.
Pros8.0:1 gear ratio. Exceptional power for an Ultra-high speed reel. Silky smooth retrieve and casting. Dual ball bearing handle is top notch quality.

Not to bad
For a $200 I'm pretty sure it's worth the price. I only say that because I haven't gotten to battle test it as much as I would have liked to already (problems of a grad student). But for the short time I have spent using the reel I have to say I'm quite impressed. It's very smooth, has great castability, and obviously it looks pretty awesome as well. Like I said I haven't had spent a significant amount of time using the reel but I feel as though the reel is worth the price.

what is the difference (are the differences) between the STX and the STX_SHS?
The STX has a standard gear ratio of 6.4:1 and the STX-SHS (Super High Speed) has a gear ratio of 8.0:1. So the difference is in the retrieval rate of the lure from the gear ratio.
