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.

Solid reel, lots of drag. I got the reel for fishing structure and spooled it with #100 powerpro, it took 375 yards. Nice finish, smooth reeling and drag, drag lever is easy to use and get into full, but it shouldn't happen unintentionally. It was hard to get the gear to change under load, but that could've been me struggling on with a fish too.

Everything I expected from an Avet!
ProsSize and drag make this perfect for handling all day.
ConsWish it had lugs for hooking to harness...after landing a couple big YFT's, it would be nice to be able to hook up and use the harness as leverage on those 5 day long range trips!

It may seem like a chunk of change but it’s built like a tank

I have put this reel to the test, I’ve dragged it on the beaches in the sand, dropped it over 250 meters in the Atlantic and the lever system never seizes on me it’s like the M1 grand of conventional reels and still it works like a winch

Just received this reel, rigged up and ready to go. Beautiful fit and finish, drag feels smooth, handles nicely. 4 stars so far but may move to 5 stars after I take it out later this month on a long range trip. We'll see. Quick and accurate service from Tackle direct

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.

I love my new Avet LX 6/3 reel. It's very smooth, it's a great looking piece of gear and it's powerful. I fish yellowtail in So Cal Waters and it just works perfectly.
ProsSmooth powerful drag. Big comfortable handle.

I purchased this reel after using a friend's on his boat. The drag is great and easy to adjust with the lever system. No twisting involved.Extremely smooth for bottom fishing or trolling. I am not sure the 2-speed is necessary but I am reserving this opinion after a full season of use. Functions as good as it looks.
By Snollygoster
You can catch anything out there with this tank.

The LX6/3's performance is as solid as its appearance. Stay within stated drag specs and this reel will never fail. Exceed the specs and you get the same results as you would with any machine...failure. Mine is loaded with 300yds of 80lb braid and 75yd of 80lb mono topshot. Drag is set at 15lbs at strike. Catch snapper, grouper, amberjack, mahi-mahi, cobia, shark, barracuda, african pompano, etc. all day long, no worries.
ProsLooks great, smooth drag, minimal water intrusion, easy to take disassemble/reassemble, US made, good value for money, all controls smooth and reliable, lightweight.
ConsIt's not idiot proof therefore those who exceed stated drag specs will damage bearings. Not really a con but a least you know what happened when someone complains about premature bearing failure.
