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.

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!

Bottom Fish Killer
HXJ raptor I own two of these. I spooled the first one with 300yds of 100lb JB solid core and the second one with 300yds 80lb Momoi braid. These reels absolutely destroy bottom fish. They have more drag than I can handle without a harness. I really like how narrow the spool is on these models. These HXJs are great for jigging and live baiting big AJ's, I made very short work of some decent size sharks too. They are taller than the JX but they still feel good in the hand and I have no problem bottom fishing with them all day. I think they would be comparable in size and weight to a baja special. I plan on using these for chunking to yellowfins when I finally go (plan on using the JX too). Only issue with these reels is they do let some water in around the harness lugs. Not really a big issue though, as long as you have a light coat of grease inside the reel or if you clean it periodically I think you will be just fine.

Avet went above and beyond with this reel, small enough to fish all day without getting tired and strong enough for heavy duty fishing.

Avet HXJ Raptor
Really what can you say negative about an AVET reel? I've been fishing SoCal inshore boats for 5 years now and recently standard multiday trips out of San Diego. This really has the drag and low gear ratio for serious cows. Works great trolling for wahoo. The narrow spool format of the J was nice compromise for size and weight while still maintaining a comfortable line length, even with 80lb braid.

Avet HXJ 5/2 MC Raptor Two-Speed Lever Drag Casting Reel Black
Living in Australia, Avet reels are hard to come by. No tackle shops (that i know of) stock them , so it's difficult to get a feel for the reel Thanks to the staff at Tackle direct giving me the low down on all the dimensions of this piece, I decided to "pull the trigger" and get the reel. I'm glad that I did, The reel is a great piece of machinery, well finished and looks awesome in black, The gear ratios are well matched and great for jigging, and with a very loud clicker its great for trolling too. Although this reel is not as smooth as some JDM reels, its does have a smooth chunky feel to it that just screams power and longevity. And with 50lbs of max drag, Well, I hate to coin the old cliche, but, "Its a workhorse not a show pony"
ProsLive bait feeding indent on lever drag
ConsAlthough the handle is a comfortable it may be just a tad too small

Better than expected! USA made!!!
What can I say? Best reel I've found for the money. Easy to service and pairs up well with a Tallus Bluewater. I've landed 20+ pound snapper/grouper and 40# AJ. This reel has impressed me on every outing! When the MAD money fund gets built up again I'm ordering another! BTW did I mention USA made?
ProsSmooth and strong Easy to maintain Light enough not to wear you out after fishing all day.

Good jigging reel…came defective
I like the finish and this is a very sturdy reel. Problem is the reel came defective and had to send it back to Avet. The bearings were loose. This is the second reel I have bought from Avet and it has had a problem.
ProsGood replacement for a Trinidad 40N, not nearly as smooth.

Lite weight and powerfull reel
I haven't used my new reel yet, but I have used this exact model down in East Cape Mexico and that is why I had to have one for my personal fishing arsenal. This reel is very lite weight and powerful too. It fit great in the hand and has up to 50 lbs of drag if you do by chance hook up with that fish of a lifetime. It holds a lot of line also. I loaded mine with 600yards of Jerry Brown 100lb braid and about 130yard of 65lb mono top shot. With this combination I should be ready for just about anything I hook into. I cant wait to get it out on the water and put the 2nd speed into play once I get that fish a little tired.... I have owned the Penn internationals and the Shimano Tyrnos 2 speed reels, and I sold those to upgrade to the Avet reels. The Avets weigh much less overall which cost me less when I a traveling with my tackle.
