Avet Single Speed Reels
Avet single speed reels include industry leading features unlike any other reel on the market. Featuring an adjustable strike pre-set lever drag system, precision machined 6061-T6 aluminum and stainless steel components, 8 rubber sealed stainless steel ball bearings, stainless steel gears and Avet's smooth, powerful Avedrag dry drag system. Avet single speed reels are at the peak of quality and performance. All Avet single speed reels are available with or without their M.C. Cast control system. (except HXW)

Avet 2-Speed Reels
Avet 2-speed reels include all of the quality features of our single speed reels, with 2-speeds. The simple, yet reliable gear shift mechanism built into the 2-speed models is so easy to operate that it becomes second nature almost immediately. The push button located at the center of the handle arm permits shifting between the high and low gears without your hand ever leaving the handle knob, and can be shifted with or without pressure, so you can shift while cranking, or when a fish is running. All Avet 2-speed lever drag casting reels (SX-HX) are available with or without their M.C. Cast control system.

Avet M.C. Cast Anti-Backlash / Cast Control
Avet's revolutionary M.C. Cast (Magic Cast) adjustable magnetic anti-backlash cast control system is available as an option on all of their single and 2-speed casting reels, SX through HX, and is a standard feature on the Raptor Series Reels (excluding the HXW Raptor). The M.C. Cast control system incorporates Avet's Patented Adjustable Intensity Polar Amplification Technology to create the most efficient and easy to use cast control system for a conventional style reel. From the lightest bait to heavy lures, the M.C. Cast Control System is simple to use, even if you have never before cast a conventional style reel. Simply place your thumb on the spool to cast, swing, remove your thumb from the spool and let it fly! You will only need to thumb the spool when the lure hits the water.

Avet Raptor Series Reels
Avet Raptor Series Reels are the cutting edge in compact large game reels. These reels are consistently landing shockingly large fish in relation to their compact size. Designed for use with the ultra thin, super strong superbraid lines available today, it's now possible to target large game species with a reel half of the size and weight compared to a reel traditionally designed for similar monofilament line and drag capacities. And the Raptor has the drag and cranking power to back it up.

The Avet Raptor Series comes standard with Avet's innovative 2-speed gears, M.C. Cast control, and a ratcheting drag lever with a positive stop strike button to prevent accidental advancement past strike. Featuring Avet's patented DUAL DIRECT DRIVE Full Surface Caliper Brake System, Raptor models put out nearly twice the drag pressure of the original Avets! There's a Raptor model that will stop any fish in the ocean, yet small and light enough to cast. If you find a fish too big for a Raptor, you probably wouldn't want it near your boat! The Raptor Series reels are the same sizes as the original Avet reels, with enhanced line capacities, and each are engineered and built to fish several line classes heavier than the original Avet Reels.

Solid Reel
January 19, 2016
Got this for west coast albacore, yellowtail flylining live bait . This is a very well made reel that is solid and casts fairly well (MC). I have it spooled with 50 lb PowerPro and and a 100yd topshot of florocarbon leader in 25 lb. First time out last month got into an epic bonita bite (10-12 lbs) that had the drag screaming and one break off (should have retied) I stopped counting after 15 and then figured it was time to go below and have a beer.
Pros:
First L/D and first Avet which have a great reputation in the San Diego area. As said this is a well made, solid reel that is well machined and has a great handle which makes crankin' easy. Also the drag is very smooth with no stuttering. Fairly easy to control when in free spool which can be a problem with L/D reels in my limited experience with them and with the drag just engaged (I put marks to show where drag starts-is at strike on the frame) I can feed out line to keep the bait lively and moving away from the boat. I found it easier to control my line than another major brand L/D I had previously borrowed that had line spilling all over the place without lots of "thumb on spool" time.
Cons:
Wish it had a higher drag rating (9 strike-14 full) as I would like to move up to 30 lb topshot for bigger fish without being near the max drag rating. Still getting used to a L/D but so far have the MC set at Max 5 with few backlashes. Drag rating issue kept it from 5 stars.

Excellent casting reel for someone used to spinning reels for the surf
December 3, 2014
I purchased this reel for surf fishing after lurking on several discussion forums for comments on Avet from surf enthusiasts. Comments were overwhelmingly positive for build quality, customer service, and owner serviceability. The only other casting reel for the surf I own is a custom mag'd Penn 545 and everything else is spinning. I am used to larger reels generally and was concerned about the small size of the SX and MX models and did not have the opportunity to try it out before the purchase. I ordered the MXJ MC model and it's a perfect match for the 10'6" St. Croix Mojo surf rod. Though small in size, line capacity is more than adequate. I have it spooled with 30lb PowerPro braid super slick. I have only practice-casted with it thus far. The mag mechanism is highly effective for someone used to spinning. I recommend following the directions and practice starting at mag set at 5 and gradually decreasing it to find your sweet spot. Each increment down to 1 on the mag adjustment makes a noticeable difference in braking. Very solid reel.
Pros:
Build quality, simplicity, choice of anodized finish.
Cons:
None so far after practice casting.
