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. 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 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.

Great for tuna

I have owned this reel for several seasons now. I am more than satisfied with its performance. Great when paired with my Star jigging rod when butterfly jigging for tuna over the canyons off the east coast.

Favorite Surf Reel

I've had this reel for about a year and it's my favorite in my arsenal. Its has a good balance of strength and lightweight. I accidentally dropped in on the sand and water a few times but it still feels brand new.

Great reel for the price

Overall very happy with the reel. I bought it for land based shark fishing and it brought in a 9.5ft sand tiger. Occasionally I add a little extra drag with my thumb so more drag would be nice but for the pice I cant complain. Reel is small enough to cast (though not great) and has enough line capacity to kayack out baits.

Beats Big Bluefins

I have a pair of Avet HXW single speeds. Great smooth drag. 30lb at full is more than you will ever need with this kind of line capacity. Beat the 120lb BFT in 30mins even with that old bag of dirt working the rod.

Absolutely fantastic reels

Was always a Penn guy but i switched over to an Avet after trying a friend of mines new one. These reels have great drag power behind them and will catch fish bigger than what they are rated for.

I troll 4 LXís and an HXW down the shoot off my 25í Mako for inshore tuna, wahoo, dolphin and striped bass off the coast of southern NJ. I was a bit reluctant going with this setup because I was afraid of being outgunned. Boy was I wrong!

Iím jigging and chunking with 40 and 30 lb leader so I really have all the drag I need for that line class. Iíve got hundreds and hundreds of yards of 65 pound braid and Iím not anchoring unless I absolutely have no choice so Iíve got plenty of line.

The HXW gives me well over 800 yards of braid/80 pound topshot so it fits well way, way back for bluefin. Iíve had no problem whatsoever with any of my Avets and I work them pretty hard. I keep them clean and they still feel like brand new.

Iíll be adding a couple of MX G2ís in the near future for dedicated jigging sticks and Iíve no reservations fishing these for the same species. Plenty of line, adequate drag and if and when I get the big one that I just canít turn, Iíll back down on him.

Tackle Direct always manages to have the best deals and their customer service is top notch. Showroomís a pretty awesome place to visit after you pick up the tax return, too!

Smooth, high quality and made in the USA. I've switching all my reels to Avet
  • Right clip-in for fighting belt too close to drag lever, should have made it slightly taller

nice reel
December 1, 2018
worked like a good fish reel should.. no issues, line dropped 120' down quickly without bird nesting and then when we switched up to troll line went out good pull meat. A good all around real with a bunch of line capacity.
