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.

I love everything about this reel, everyone doubted me when I said I was gonna use this surf casting, who‚€™s laughing now lol
ProsSmall for a reel that holds 600+ yards of line, nice low gear ratio, smoothest reel I‚€™ve ever owned.

Excellent Reel
The Avet HX 4.2 is the smoothest reel I own. It works great on Alaskan halibut, lings and the assortment of rockfish we see. I'll buy another next year, perhaps the 2 speed version to make checking the gear easier.
ProsSmooth lever drag system. 4.2 gear ratio w/ large diameter spool
ConsToo good looking to want to beat it up. We'll thrash it anyway :)

Drag Failed
1st trip offshore drag failed grouper fishing. Was really excited about this reel. Had set up with 60lb braid to 40lb mono backing taped to spool. Very disapointed. Contacted Avet and was talked to very rudely by a customer service rep that knew nothing about a reel and said "Sorry I'm not a fisherman" transferred to someone else and was told I must have made a mistake when spooling when I try'd to explain how I rigged it I was cut off with "just send it back to us" by someone named Eliza and hung up on while trying to ask where. I was going to look up where to send at this point but now I think I'll just have my guy repair it and pay for it myself to not deal with them anymore.
ProsBeautiful Real Line Capacity Didn't get to use long enough to list any others

Awesome Reel!
I live in Jackonville, FL and bought this reel for larger offshore fish. I also have an LX 6.0 that is a very nice reel too. However, I really like this reel for the lower gear ratio. The 4/1 ratio is great for big Red Snapper, AJ's, and Grouper. I got rocked a few times in the past with other reels but this one helps get the Grouper off the bottom. All in all, Avet makes an awesome product and this one serves its purpose well!
