Is there a way to tell which generation reel is which? I just bought a used Revo STX but don't know what generation. Thanks in advance.

I just tried to post the following twice from my phone but it wouldn't take. If it ends up posting three times, my bad. Anyway, I have a third gen and if you flip the reel over, mine says "Revo3 STX". Mine also has a chrome sticker on the center of the foot that has some number/letter combo. I believe that is an identifier but that is speculation.

The Gen 1 stx only has magnetic brakes and a straight handle. The Gen 2 has dual braking, mag and centrifugal and has a bent handle. Gen 3 has Eva foam knobs.
