Great reels
I still use some of my other reels, but selling my other large penn tackle and going to avet. At 71 I can still fish big from the surf with smaller tackle. Love my avets and so will my kids.
ProsLine capacity, drag, smooth.
ConsDon't have enough yet. Never Have One Of Anything You Can Have Two Of. Or more.

Good solid reel. My friend has had his 30/2 and i have used it for a while.
i came here and signed up wanting to buy one of his ex's, i'd had the pleasure of using these rods for some seasons through friends and fellow Salt Doggs, but then fell in live with the EXW at a local show. smooth, little maintenance,excellent casting as long as you can manage a reel without a level wind( i couldn't at first but now i'm good at it). I plan on using my 30/2 for medium to big sharks ( just started last summer) :) and from every review from fisherman i know to youtube the Avet reels are the way to go! Good luck Ladies and Gentlemen on the catch. Keep you hooks sharp, and your actions sharper.
ProsAmazing retrieve gears don't grind at all, even after virtually being coated in sand off the surf and the salt from boating use. Nice color choice( his being blue and is beautiful! ). Even the regular EX will drag a big shark in ( caught a 500 pound thresher on my boat last year with my friends EX and had no problem handling it!) Super clean and neat milling.
Consthe only one is that the anodizing scratches. This happen with literally every anodized product! From my old Penn internationals to my pops Diawa Saltist......even to my old patintball guns (ahh memories of when i was 30 again)

Fast shipping, was at my door in 4 business days. Very pleased with the reel. It will be put to use a lot this year, but can already tell it's exactly what I was after. Loud clicker, insane amount of line capacity, strong smooth drag, and lightweight for its size.
ProsFast shipping. Loud clicker. Capacity. Smooth drag.

After trying out Avet's 50/2 SDS for the season, I liked it so well I bought three more. Very smooth powerful drags, great line capacity for a standard width reel. Avets are the only reels on the boat now.

Best 50
This is the 5th Avet I have bought and they are always perfect. Great affordable big game reel made in the US. Avet has great customer service if need be but these reels are bullet proof. If you want to get into offshore fishing these reels you can't go wrong.
ProsAffordable, Great durability, amazing drag and construction

Top notch
These reels are made to last. Great workmanship and pride went into the design and manufacturing and top notch parts make it a must for any application of use. And the best part made in the USA.
ProsLever drag has a stop mid way so you can't apply full all at once.

Avet EXW 50/2
Outstanding reel so far. Using it mainly for high speed trolling for wahoo on bent butt rods. The clicker has a very distinct sound and we have had no problem hearing it when the last two wahoo (35lbs and 54lbs) have hooked up. The drags are amazing and very easy to set. I originally purchased two and since using them, I have purchased another one. I have 900 yards of 130lb hollow core on two and 1100 yards of 130lb hollow core on the third. I still have plenty of room for a mono top shot for mahi season in the spring.
