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.

great surf reel
November 5, 2014
Avid mxl reels with the mc work well for surf castings. I have switched all my surf rods to the Avid mc (magnet cast) reels. Very smooth, light and powerful. I use braid and top shot of florocarbon. The different colors options make it easy to identify when multiple rods are in use.
ProsQuality construction, easy to service
ConsDo not drop in the sand, can get gritty and will have to be serviced.

I have owned this reel for over a year now and I'm very impressed. My use is different than it's intended saltwater design. This is my primary Lake Sturgeon reel used once a year below the Prairie Du Sac WI. dam on the Wisconsin river. Casting is a dream using the Magnetic Cast feature, so much so that you can learn to completely leave the spool "unthumbed". It's something you need to try to believe. Many reviews of these reels diss the low drag range as not enough. My own drag is set far below maximum and I find it is more than I want to hold for an extended fight. Learning a conventional lever drag reel without a level wind for me was easy and straight forward. My next planned use will be Blue catfish in the Alton IL. area. Hoping for a 100lb trophy, this reel can handle it. I was able to load 300yds of 80lb PowerPro braid. Avet includes a warning on braid slippage and recommendations on proper braid spooling. In summary I am happy with my purchase and plan to add other Avet models in the future.
ProsNice fit and finish, strong and well built. USA made. Right size to use all day.
ConsAvet reel foot design is a "maybe" on some rods. Some of the small parts chrome plating has peeled on my reel. I did not contact Avet about it because it just didn't matter enough to me. I believe they would fix it if I had asked. I prefer the unplated stainless look to the shiny chrome so I left it "seasoned".
