I own two and use them three or four times a week on the lagoons of east central Florida. Great reels. I have both spooled with 20# Power Pro.

Not sure if the 6 pin centrif. brake is the same as the Revo S but I had a problem w/ the pins popping out to the "on position". Started after 4 months of use and was perfect up to that point. If i would have 2 brakes set, after a few casts 4 would be set. My fix was to just remove all but 2 of the pins as I don't use more than that anyway. Just thought I would give a heads up.
