  • Large comfortable soft touch handle knob.

    • MC Cast is a standard feature on Raptor models (HXW Raptor excluded)
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.

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

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.

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

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

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

What are some good rod pairings for the HX? Used for jigging, troll, and live bait.....
1 Answer
Check out the Tallus stand up rods very versitile rods. Also the star rods would pair nicely with the HX. When looking for a good paring stay within 30-80 line class and around 6ft length

Can this reel take a yellowfin tuna around 150 and 300 pounds 

?

1 Answer
Kelvin,

The Avet HX Raptor reel can definitely handle almost any size YFT as its has plenty of line capacity and a max drag of 50lb.  But, if you think you need a bit more capacity then you can move up to the HXW Raptor.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

I’m looking for a shark fishing rod to pair with the HXW raptor using 80lb braid main line 100lb top shot. Any suggestions for rods? 
1 Answer
Anthony,

A nice rod to pair with your Avet HXW would be the TackleDirect TDSSUT601MHSB (TDA-0265).  If you want something a little heavier, then TDSSUT601HSB (TDA-0264) is an option. Both would work well for shark fishing.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
