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.

Jackpot 1st out with this reel.
October 5, 2019
I paired this reel up to my new Calstar 970 Graphfighter to bring in a 27lb yellow tail. I know it’s not the biggest fish caught on one of these reels, but when Capt transitioned to rock fish it was an easy configuration change to rock fishing. It was a great day of freelance fishing and this reel performed flawlessly. I actually ended up losing the rod and reel. My wife used it when she broke off, and claimed it as hers. I’ll miss this rod and reel, but I know I will be getting a duplicate soon. The money I won for big fish would have paid for the reel, but I used those $$ to tip the crew of the Aloha Spirit.
ProsSmooth. Super smooth and easy to maintain. Powerful retrieve and disc brake that is perfect. Dropping down 200+ feet is quick and fly lining a sardine or anchovies is in this reels wheelhouse.
ConsI love Avet reels. I can?t think of a single thing I?d want different on this reel.

Absolutely fantastic reels
April 4, 2019
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 have a nice MX I use for fluking. Spend the extra money for the Magic cast, its worth the price difference and is less hastle. if you have people who are not experienced fishermen use your gear as guests MC is great.

This reel is smooth and tuff. Best reel I've ever bought. Really cranks in the hogs from the bottom and can be used for trolling as well. My crew love them.

Raptor supreme
March 12, 2018
I purchased an MXL Raptor from TD and it has become my grouper reel of choice. Paired with a MH Tallus this reel can bring anything up off the bottom. This is the perfect 80 pound braid to 80 pound leader reel for bottom fishing the Gulf. Also serves well for fishing mangos.These MX size reels are the optimal size for my hands, still small enough to easily palm but big enough to handle just about anything on the bottom. Once you go to an Avet reel, you'll never go back to anything else. If you fish in the Gulf and you can only have 2 conventionals then the MX and SX would be the 2 you couldn't go wrong with.
ProsEverything from drag to the weight
ConsNot the smoothest reels out there but smooth enough.

Real world spectra line capacity

The MXJ raptor holds just over 400 yards of 50 lb. Izorline spectra with room for short 40 lb. fluorocarbon top-shot, which is more than enough given the line class!

HULK green and just as incredible
May 2, 2017
When this first arrived, it didn't feel very smooth reeling right out of the box. After playing around with it for a short while, it seemed to break in and now reels nice and smooth. When I brought it into spool up at the bait shop where my friend works, he was surprised how smooth my Avet was. Since he's only handled brand new Avets straight out of the box, he thought they were just gritty feeling.

There feels like there is plenty of drag and I'm glad I didn't spend a bit more on the Avet MXJ raptor. The 2 speed is awesome too.

Spirits were high, as the yellowfin counts earlier in the week were "limit style". Last weekend had an old buddy in town who wanted to fish, so we jumped on a two day trip out of Oceanside. Spirits were high, as the yellowfin counts earlier... Read More
