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.

Best jigging reel
September 12, 2020
As I began to built my offshore rod/reel arsenal I found my self wanting a reel that would work well for jigging up snapper/grouper. I got everything I was looking for in this reel. The drag is easy to adjust and smooth as fresh ash-fault. I plan to take a long range trip on the Yankee Capt and this reel with defiantly make that trip with me. Its capability to hold an seemingly endless amount of line make it ideal for the trip.

This reel performs very well. It is by far the smoothest reel I have ever owned. It's lightweight but extremely well made. I use it for Grouper fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. The reel arrived very quickly. 5 star experience

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.

This is my second Avet of the same model. It is a powerhouse of a reel I’ve used it for vertical jigging and bottom fishing. It handles big A.J’s and slob Atlantic Red Snapper with ease. I build custom rods and just wish they offered the left hand model in more colors.

Best reels on the market in my opinion and magic cast makes them better!
July 21, 2018
I have three Avets and I have used many....many..... more reels over the years! My buddy owns a charter boat, and another works on a party boat, plus i have my own boat, and bring guests all the time so i have the fortunate luxury of getting to try all kinds of reels and poles. Nothing really compares to these guys. They cost more money but it is worth it by a mile. These are reels that you buy if you want to hand them down to your kids and they hand them down to your grand kids! Just bought a 30/2 wide to add to my collection for sharking and WOW! no comparison! This line of reels is the New Penn in my opinion!
Prosgreat quality. Best drags on the market. Line capacity. Last years. tough as nails. beautiful finish. smooth reel action. cast as far as........Ahem....not going to say the next word out of politeness.

JX Raptor
I spooled it with 80lb momoi braid (should have just went with 65 because I do not operate these reels at their maximum specified drag capacity) This is the all around best size reel for multi-specie fishing. If I could only afford one Raptor this is the one I would buy. Holds about 500yds of 65lb line and puts out over 35lbs of drag. It fits great in the hand and is comfortable to fish with all day long. It has enough line capacity to fish it with light drag while also having the drag capacity to winch the biggest of bottom dwellers to the boat. I can't think of anything bad to say about it..... it's great

First Impressions: The Avet JX6/3 MC Raptor 2-Speed is of marvel of contemporary "American" engineering. The finish is flawless without any visible machine marks of any kind. The mechanism operates freely and impeccably. Casting is effortless and the MC completes it's assigned task extremely well. Will be testing this item rigorously (this summer) in Florida. Therefore, enough said for now...
ProsRead above statement
ConsNone for now...Will know more after my fishing trip to Florida.

This reel has excellent drag and is smooth as silk when reeling in fish. I've used this reel for fishing all across Southern California, and have yet to lose a fish with this reel. Once you're hooked up, big fish don't stand a chance. Use with confidence!
ProsGreat drag, smooth operation, high line capacity
