So i just got my new avet reel in the mail. The packing was done by a 2 year old. The hardwear was loose in the box with nothing to protect the reel during shipping leading to scarches on the face of my brandnew 300.00 reel along with some barring noise thats not supposed to be there (may work its self out). Im a customer of tackle direct have been for a few months and have spent close to 1000.00 in the past 2 months. Everything i have orderd has been well packaged and deliverd quickly. I will be ordering my next 3 avets from avet. I gave the reel a 3 star rateing i give tackle direct a 4 star rateing and no stars to who ever packed my reel they need to be fired.

Merchant Response:That is how Avet reels leave the factory. Also, Avet does not sell reels directly.
ProsLove avets Solid built Killer drag
ConsPacking was very poor Reel was scarched up during shipping Making barring noise

Great reel
I've been using this reel for about 3 years now and it's still going strong. Great amount of line capacity for its size, strong drag, and distinctive bait alarm from my other reels. Wish the bait alarm was a little louder, but can hear it fine in most conditions.
ProsLine capacity. Drag. Durability.
ConsSoft bait alarm

Great Kingfish Reel
Great reel for kingfishing. The drags are very smooth, and the 6.0 speed is great to catch up to a fish running at you. The drag adjustment can be a little tricky with the LX. It can go from very light to very tight with minor movement of the lever. This can be fixed with a drag washer change (so i hear from other sources). Once the reels get some use, this doesn't seem to be as much of an issue.
ProsSmooth drag, good line capacity, fast retrieve
ConsDrag adjustment can go from light to heaver with minor adjustment

This 6.0 size Abet reel has plenty enough drag and line capacity to allow fishermen to handle tuna, Maui mahi and wahoo, and many reef reef fish. It's very light and easy to handle

Avet LX 6.0
This is a solid real for 30 to 50 pound mono. Works well for jigging or fishing live bait. Also a solid reel for fishing trolling and has a nice loud clicker. Great reel for under $300 and made in the USA

Best value overall for durability, performance, and price point
If you haven't used one, you should, these are bullet proof aluminum tanks... strong, smooth, great line capacity, the perfect 20-40 pound class reel, all round great. We have charter fished these reels tough and they hold up. Kingfish, sailfish, wahoo, cobia... its a great kite fishing reel too because its fast.
ProsEverything, really everything is great

top notch item
purchased this item for my daughters birthday and was very satisfied at how the color came out. As a shore caster here in Hawaii we do not normally like usung lever drag reels because they never seem to free spool properly causing less distance. To my surprise I could cast this avet lx just as far as a sealine or Seagate. Have yet to test it out on a big strike but thus far has landed 20lb giant trevally and exceeded my expectations.
Prosstrong drag pressure, solid construction, simple to maintain.
Consonly problem I can see is it may be difficult for me personally to get parts if it will ever need it

This is my go to deep drop reel. The 4.6:1 ratio is perfect. It's a great value for the dollar.

Solid well built USA conventional reel
This reel was my first Avet purchase. After handling my friends new Avet SX and experiencing it's amazing freespool I had to have one. I wanted a larger LX for it's line capacity. I matched it to a (discontinued) St Croix 7'6" Premier saltwater rod that came from TackleDirect. Well balanced and a dream to use. I sold the reel after deciding it was overkill for the Lake Sturgeon fishing I used it for. Mistake! I now have some Florida fishing trips in the works and I will likely buy another. This time I will add the MC Cast feature. I was able to fill the LX with a Mono backing and still get 350yds of 80lb braid on this reel. If you need line capacity like this, look no further. I have two other Avet models (sxj and mxl both with the MC Cast feature) and enjoy using them.
ProsSuperior Fit & Finish. Endless freespool.
ConsRubber Knob could be bigger for a more secure grip.

Great reel, silent clicker though.
I have researched this reel sometime before buying. I'm very impressed with its feel, cast ability and outstanding quality. My only complaint is the clicker is so so quiet.
ProsQuality, castabilty, look and feel.
ConsExtremely quiet clicker.

Great King Reel
We use these on our SKA fishing trail. We currently have ten of this model and never had one fail. Great with mono or braid. Add the king drag system and they are perfect for catching King Mackerel on the East Coast
