A standout reel
I actually own the STX10 and STX40 but there was no STX series in the menu. I have flogged them hard without an issue. The first one was the little STX10 which I loaded with heavier line and worked it to try and break it but to no avail. Upon servicing I think they are quality way above their price tag. Supposed features of more expensive Daiwa's or Shimano's are standard on these reels without the fuss. I recommended these to a friend who bought the SX10 and SX40. He loves them. Key features are the sealed carbon drag which is beautifully engineered. The spool sits on a well designed hub for a more stable drag setting. All alloy body means no flex. No problems at all.
There is not much difference between the STX and SX series. Only bearings versas bushes under the spool hub and bearings in the handle separate the models. I think these are discontinued now.
Quality without the big price
Second shallow spool is a bit useless
