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.

Well Built Little Machine
December 28, 2014
This is one of the nicest reels I've ever seen. Finely made little machine. Tiny form factor that holds lots of line. When you crank this guy it feels like a little winch. Can't wait to pull in a nice striper with this reel. I plan to use this reel with 2 different poles, one surf one inshore.

Great reel for light jigging and casting applications
October 19, 2013
Nice reel, great quality finishing, excellent for light jigging application, and nice castability with the magnetic cast controls for both inshore and off shore usage, I fished a lot using it, caught too many fish (10lb and below), and it never failed me. I definitely recommend it

I'm a saltwater kayaker I'm needing a salt water reel for trolling, vertical jigging and lowering live bait on the bottom and occasional casting ? Which model would you suggest ?? Thanks JT
Hello JT. The SX model Avet would be a PERFECT choice for what you will be doing. It is one of Avets smaller reels but packs a real punch and would be perfect for the kayak. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call and we will get you all set up!

How well does this reel cast? Can I use this for freshwater bass and catfish as well as saltwater? Is it a good reel for surf fishing?
The MC versions cast very well. It was designed for saltwater use so it might be too big / strong for bass. It should work very well on large cats.
