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.

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.

Amazing reel would recomend to anyone
I purchased a avet exw 80 from tackle direct and this was my first avet purchase. The drag is so smooth its unreal, line capicity is a little extreme but for the shark fishing i do its exactly what i needed. I have made several purchases from tackle direct and there great people to do business with i recomend them to everyone i can!
ProsAmazing quality 5 out of 5 stars al day long very loud clicker, super strong drag, and extreemly durable frame!
ConsOnly cons whith this reel is they were out of stock of the color blue i wanted so i settled with gold because the had a gold one on the shelfs

Darned Near Bullet-Proof!
I was looking for a tough, easy to use reel for fishing for swordfish (night time) in our area. I am Glad I got this one! Easy to use - Great line capacity - ruggedly built - darned near the fishing reel version of a bull-dog!
ProsGreat line capacity - especially with the newer micro braided lines. Smooth, positive drag in all parts of the drag range. Massive drag range!
ConsNone so far that I have seen.

Excellent Quality
This is one of many avet reels I own. The quality and machining of this product won't disappoint. These reels are extremely durable and don't back down to any fish. I would highly recommend avet reels to any angler that demands high quality and longevity of their fishing equipment.

Solid Workhorse offshore rod
This is by no means a bad reel. The EX50 is bulletproof and will take abuse. My only issue is that the drag is not linear. As you push the lever up you very quickly jump from free spool to a high level of drag. This is not bad for certain types of fishing but for trolling and unexpecting anglers it can be a nuisance.

There was a dvd in the box that did not work. No manuals to download on line? When I called the company (2 time) they said that they would "GET BACK WITH ME". That never happened. Not sure yet how the reel will hold up. I hope it does well since there is no customer service.
ConsPoor customer service at BEST.

Broken Drag Adjustment Knob
Upon receiving my reel, a few things in particular stood out to me. 1. The box the reel came in was not sealed. (I expected a plastic cover, but maybe that is actually how it is supposed to come.) 2. The reel itself was very dusty. (This is what led me to believe that at one point and time there was a plastic cover, and somewhere along the line it was removed.) 3. There was no owners manual included with the reel. However this is my first time purchasing an Avet and therefor I do not know if they include a manual. Whether it was removed by Tackle Direct or not included by Avet, either way it was a big inconvenience and made the company look much more unprofessional then it originally seemed. (Whether it is Tackle Directs fault or Avets) 4. AFTER spooling my avet with over $150 in a braid/mono combination, I come to find out that there is a problem with the drag adjustment knob. For those who do not know, reels do not come with the proper drag amount already set. You must use a knob on the side of the reel (while in free spool) to increase or decrease the amount of drag at "strike". Without the adjustment knob working I can not increase my drag. It is currently sitting at about 24lbs drag at MAX. No where near the amount I need for the shark fishing that I do. Since my discovery of this problem I have contacted Avet in hope of some guidance to fix the adjustment knob. I have yet to hear back. Until either Tackle Direct or Avet assumes responsibility and resolves this issue, my $750 reel is an oversized paperweight and a reminder of the poor state that either Avet or Tackle Direct allowed there product to be sold in. Oh, and not to mention the $150 in fishing line that will go to waste if the reel has to be replaced. I'm sure this is a "rare" incident because I have seen other buyers of this same reel rave about its quality and functionality. However for me on this rare occasion, my avet is a piece of junk.
Pros-Holds lots of line -Very beautiful reel -Loud clicker
Cons-No owners manual -Drag adjustment knob broken -Reel box was not sealed -Reel was dirty (dusty) -Avet has yet to respond to my complaints
