Question about Abu Garcia REVO STX Generation 3 Casting Reel

1 Answer

Poor casting ability

I purchased a new STX high speed reel and it does not cast very well at all....yes I know how to use it as I have 5 gen 2 stx and sx reels that work great. This seems to engage the centrifical brake way too hard way too early...I've backed the spool brake all the way off, turned off the mag brake and it still won't cast more than 40 feet. It's terrible! My old 4600CB's will outcast this thing by a mile!

Remove the left side plate and set the little plastic things ( I think they are yellow) so they are against the inside..they should kinda snap inwards and stay there...
Found a video ( not well made but it shows how to access the brake system).. you will see the SIX little yellow plastic brake adjusters... start with moving FOUR (4) - opposites of each other - of them inwards towards the spool shaft.. they should "click" inwards and stay there...CAST carefully the next time.

Impacts of Vacuum Die Casting Technology on Aluminum Alloy Die Castings?


Aluminum alloy die casting is the casting process that injecting the high temperature molten aluminum alloy liquid into die cavity with high pressure and high speed for moulding. Features of this casting method are product precise forming and high production efficiency. However, the conventional die casting process is defective. Because the gas in the mold cavity cannot be eliminated effectively, the gas in the mold cavity cannot be eliminated effectively, and the inner parts of the casting can be left to form the defects of the pores, to make the mechanical property of the casting poor. In order to solve this problem, people use the method of vaccum pumping, that is, the gas in the cavity of the die casting can form a certain vacuum or negative pressure state, thereby reducing the inner hole defect of the casting.

How can I get my reel to cast smoothly?


Hey Ken, Neil here from Dark Side Reelz. it boils down to over oiled bearings, or bearings that require cleaning, your spool shaft only rides on 2 or max of 3 points, (depending on reel make) each of those points contains a bearing the spool shaft seats in those bearings any build up will greatly reduce casting distance. I specialize in reel cleanings, rebuilds and restorations as well as custom work like upgrades and super tuning. If you would like to read some really good info on what you can do read this article I wrote http://ezangler.com/tackle-box/gear-tips/the-reel-truth/ here is the link to my webiste as well www.darksidereelz.com

There should be a 1/4 inch discharge line that lets you know the water is circulating through the unit, also you should check for blockage in the intake. Some models had a problem with the manifold casting.

Abu garcia silver max reel manual


those are your magnetic cast control. it is a magnetic braking system. i suggest setting it at "5" and dont adjust unless you are casting into the wind, if that is the case turn it up to towards maximum and keep your casts low to the water and use heavy baits. its a great tool to help eliminate backlash.

Bird nesting I think something is missing like a washer on the spool shaft under the cap and I don't know what should be there


common problem especially with new users who are used to fixed spool casting, when casting with a multiplier you should keep your thumb over the drum so you can slow down the drum as your cast slows to fall in the water, if you had a drag washer you wouldnt be able to cast, you will get the hang of it with practice, but even with 30 odd years of use i still ocaisionaly get a nest.

Shakespeare ?Tidewater? reel


late response here, but it is worth noting that these reels need quite a bit of lure weight to cast easily. two or three oz and it will do very well. i use these for cats and love em. good luck

Have a new Daiwa Exceler 100H reel with no paperwork, instructions or feature description. Can you help?


What do you want to know? How to set it up for first time?
1. Spool on some line (start w/mono is not familiar w/bait casters)
2. Installl reel on a rod
3. Set the mag brake to 0
4. Tighten the Cast control nut (next to the star shaped drag control) so it's tightened all the way (don't go crazy and use a lot of force, just set it to the tightest position)
5. Tie on a 3/8 - 1/2 Oz weight or lure - Lure/weight should NOT move at all when you let it go
6. SLOWLY loosen the Cast-control nut (very slowly) until the lure/weight drops slowly about 1/2 turn of the spool
7. Set the Magnetic brake to 5
8. Go practice casting and adjust cast-control and mag brake as needed until you can go without a birdsnest, and you don't ahfve to use all the much thumb control to stop the spool at the end of the cast
9. Practice, practice, practice...

This is what I got from a Daiwa Rep at the Eastern Fishing Expo this weekend in Worcester, Ma and I'll be doing exactly these steps once it warns up enough to go our and play with the new reel and rod (Quantum Energy PT Med/Hvy (6'6").
Peace,
Shepp
