Born in the U.S.A. !!!!!!!!!!!
June 28, 2018
Considering how perfect this reel is, and Tackle Directs proximity to where Bruce Springsteen was born, and the reel being made in the U.S.A. I couldn't resist the chance to throw Born in the U.S.A. as the headline. These reels are absolute beasts. Period. Spend your hard earned money on something like an Avet if you are looking for a superb quality product! I had the opportunity of finally seeing the Dorado pattern at a swap meet my uncle drug me to in ny state. Thing blows away expectations as far as functionality and especially looks.
Pros
  • Gorgeous anodizing. Born in the U.S.A. ! in my opinion unparalleled quality.
Cons
  • zero

I really have enjoyed using this reel because it has impressive cranking power in low gear and good speed in high gear. The reel has a lot of power for the size.

This is a very beautiful and bad ass reel! I took it out bottom fishing couple times and they feel so good. Very smooth and has an unbelivable amount of drag.

Just got this HX and love it. Tons of drag, landed 2 80lb bluefin on it loaded with 100lb jerry brown to 80lb fluoro. My only critique is it is a little tough casting live bait. Might be the line but heavy jigs cast ok and baits dont fly well. Also i will upgrade to an aftermarket T handle for the hard fighting bigger fish. Averall 4 stars.

This review will simply sound like all the other positive reviews so going to save you the trouble. If you want a Damn good reel for trolling, reef fishing buy the HX . had almost bought the hxj for the narrow spool for jigging glad I didn’t IMO the HX works just fine
Pros
  • Light , easy functionality , well made
Cons
  • None yet

Rock solid reel. Great drag to weight ratio. Wish Avet would tighten up the handle slop for jigging but still an awesome reel.

First time Avet buyer and I am blown away with the quality. Definitely happy with the reel and will be buying more Avet reels in the future.
Pros
  • Quality made in the USA. Even the reel seat clamp is machined aluminum!
Cons
  • The packaging could be improved so the reel doesn?t bounce around during shipping.

It’s a beast!
January 24, 2021
I love this reel so much I bought two. I put them on a couple bent butt 50-80 lb rods and trolled with them yesterday for the first time, solo high speed for wahoo. Well yes I did hook up to a 36lb wahoo! The reel did a great job. Strong drag and pulled it it in low gear. Forget Accurate, buy an Avet.
Pros
  • Made in the USA
  • Quality
  • Strong drag
  • Great customer service with Avet
  • 2 speed beast in a small package
Cons
  • None

This reel was out of my price range but tackle direct had it on sale I purchased it for my daughter she absolutely loves it. Fast Retrieve and the two speed is real nice when you have a big fish close to boat and it made in the USA

I paired it with a Super Seeker 2x4 rail rod. Spooled with more than 500 yards of 100 lbs hollow core, it is now ready for cow tuna. I cannot wait to go to San Diego in July. I have several Shimano products (reels and rods) but recently started buying domestic products like Super seeker, Calstar, and Avet to support the local (domestic) industry - coming from a naturalized US citizen that should be worth something. This is my second Avet, the other one being Avet HX MC Raptor, which I used to land 70 lbs BF tuna last July. Avet is not as smooth as Shimano Talica II, but it casts better than Talica.
Pros
  • Powerful and holds plenty of line to fight cow tuna and casts well; price is reasonable
Cons
  • Gears are not as smooth as Shimano Talica

Pros
