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.

Born in the U.S.A. !!!!!!!!!!!
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.
ProsGorgeous anodizing. Born in the U.S.A. ! in my opinion unparalleled quality.

A work of art!
This reel is so pretty and smooth I'm thinking of keeping it as a collector's item.

Far exceeded my expectations!!!
As a diehard Penn Reel man, I took a chance on the AVET Reel. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I like Penn but AVET puts more punch in a smaller and more efficient reel. I will buying another larger AVET in the near future!

Outstanding Reel
This is my first 2-speed reel and I will never buy another single speed conventional. This real is super smooth and the drag is amazing.

Great Reels for the Price
Closely compared these to Talica 25II and new Accurate BV2 1000 both of which are more expensive and are not as quality of product and use inferior parts in many applications IMO. Since we have gotten our HXWs we have already landed many tuna and the performance has been as expected. Setting strike drags is super precise with just a click being 1-2# at a shot and after a long trip when I test them for the next trip they have barely moved. For reference we have been able to fit 650yds of 100#HC with a true 100yd topshot of 80# smoke blue Hi-Catch.
ProsLight weight, machined aluminum, stainless bearings, loud clicker, precision drag setting, solid line capacity, price, made in USA

Don't get CHEAP! Go ahead and spend the money
If you want the BEST, buy this Avet, it does more, better, faster, lighter than my custom built Penn 9/0's ever thought of doing. You will be able to WHIP 200lb fish faster and less fatigue on your body as well. Plus, you can hand these reels down to your grand children in 50 years. Quality Quality Quality!
Proslight, powerful, smooth, castable

Is the HX MC Raptor Two Speed available in red?
1 Answers
We might be able to get this reel in red, but it would probably take a few months because they do colors like that in batches.
