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.

Top notch reel
One of the best reels I've ever used. Only reason for four stars instead of five is because I'm a lefty and the only color available for a lefty is silver, but the reel operates flawlessly.

Loose handle
I was ecstatic when I got this reel in the mail today. But after I turned the reel handle a few times to get a feel of how the 2 speed mechanism worked, I noticed that it was loose. I thought when turning the handle, it would be smooth (which it is), and would feel nice and TIGHT, but the handle is loose and goes BACKWARDS, freely, about an inch worth? I hate when that happens! It feels like the reel is a cheap knock-off. Not what I was expecting, especially from a $400~ American-made reel. Is that supposed to happen? Is that normal? If it's not, ... talk about first impressions... I don't think I'll ever purchase an avet reel, ever again. If that's supposed to be like that, then all is well. I'll still spend my hundreds of dollars on a different reel.
ProsLooks nice, sleek, compact, and powerful.
ConsFeels LOOSE, due to the handle turning backwards freely an inch. Also, perhaps you can seal the reel in an air-tight, plastic bag before you sell it. After I opened the box, I found that the reel was filthy!

Amazing small reel
This is a great reel for multiple applications. It has the power to handle large fish and small enough to cast all day long. I use this reel for Tuna trips in san Diego and the drag is excellent. This small compact reel also casts like no other. I use it to cast of the surf in south Texas. It casts smoothly with excellent free spool. I can cast this reel about 110 yards, enough to get past the third sand bar and it has enough power to stop a 5-6 foot black tip from the surf. Line capacity is great for the small compact size.
ProsGreat Drag Small and Compact Excellent casting with MC

Great reel!
This is a great reel for the size/function at this price. I seriously doubt you will find better at this price. It has way more drag than most can use in a reel this size. It casts very well and shifting the gears is almost foolproof.
ProsThe drag on this reel is unexpected in this size. The shifting between gears is fast and easy while fighting a fish. The different colors that are available will help to customize your harem.
ConsAttaching a safety line to the reel could be easier if something was provided on the reel clamp, even as an optional purchase.

SX Super Star
Don't let this little reel fool you, this thing has the power to take down some large fish. I spooled this up with 300yrd Jerry Brown 50 solid and a 75yrd 30lbs mono top shot. Small, lite, power full, what else can you ask for.
ProsQuality, price point, Avet guy who has many, best reels on the market for that price point, the MC casting isn't to bad either

This is a very well made small strong reel.combined with a G loomus pro blue rod 50lb braid and a good boat capt big fish well past it's lb class are on the deck.The raptor models are well worth the extra cost. If shimano made this reel it would cost $2000.

As OUTSTANDING Reel - Great for Wreck Fishing and Jigging in Deep Water
Avets are quality reels and are worth every penny spent on them...This particular reel is a workhorse with a great gear ratio to add in deep water fishing...AWESOME!!! Pair it up with a Shimano Trevala Rod and you will have the best combo money can buy!!!

One of the best reels in my arsenal.
Love this reel. I have had it for over an year now and I absolutely love it. I came from the world of spinning rods so I had to learn how to use this properly. Once I got the hang go it, I fell in love with it. I have bridge fished, deep dropped, surf casted, I've baited this reel and it does each equally well. It totally overbuilt for what I use it for. That being said, I wouldn't have it any other way. This is an American made gem, and you deserve to have one and cherish it and appreciate it like I do. Its made to be put to work.
ProsAmerican made. Tuff. Beautiful finish All around use

Solid Reel
Very smooth reel. The lever drag works great. I live line 10 inch bunker for stripers at a light drag setting. When they take the bait and run I slide the drag to the preset strike position and the fun begins. Also a great reel to cast with.

Compact yet Smooth and Powerful
I use these reels on striped bass to 50# and yellowfin to 70#. They are light but carry exceptionally strong gearing. The MC feature makes it particularly well suited for live lining larger bait. I chose this particular model Raptor for the higher max drag limits of 17# in the strike position and 26# full forward. I set these on the scale and they do not vary. This reel does not feel stressed one bit on these size fish. No need to gear down on the bass but it comes in handy on the tuna especially during the pinwheel. Reel is compact with a big handle. I liked the first one so much I just bought its twin. Enough said.
ProsCompact lightweight for the fish it handles....this is definitely the wave of the future. 17# drag in the strike position Very smooth drag system
ConsCouldn't think of any.....
