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.

GREAT REEL WITH EXCELLENT FEATURES BUT...
September 21, 2021
Bought this reel about 2 months ago and have taken it out twice. Compact and light enough to handle fishing with it all day paired with an Edge Rod FSC LRR 7630 for flylining. I'm not exactly proficient with using lever drag but the hookups set nicely and if more power was needed, the drag can be advanced further to really lock it down.
The only thing that caused a problem for me was the J-Braid 4 strand 65lb was actually thin enough to slip into the gap between the spool and housing. That caused the reel to bind and unable to free spool. My fault for putting too much line on and an easy fix by stripping off some line. Otherwise, powerful little reel, I can't wait to see how it performs in low gear for bottom fishing.

Very nice reel. Mine is rigged with 65# Nomad and a phoenix rod. Just a great combination. The reel is great to throw and has very smooth, very strong drag just built for big Tuna.
Pros
  • Smooth, Great drag, light, fast

You know the old saying...you get what you pay for. That's definitely the case with AVET reels. I finally stepped up to a premium reel and the fact these are made in the US was a big factor in my deciding to do it. Now there's no looking back. Everything about the reel is SOLID. I've had it out on the Pacific for halibut and bottom fish and I liked it so much I've ordered another (larger) AVET. Yes, costly, but well worth the investment.
Pros
  • Rock solid, two speed, lever drag, and made in the USA

Absolutely fantastic reel. The gearing is extremely smooth, drag is like butter. Another bonus is that Avets customer service is top notch. The AR dog is completely silent-The only thing I would change is adding a back up anti reverse that takes some of the reverse play out before engaging.

November 5, 2020
I have used the reel once and it was very stiff at the start of the day. But after a few hours it did loosen up. I was dropping jigs, so don't know how the free the spool will be for fly lining live bait. All reel functionality and drag is good.
Pros
  • Solid reel
  • Drag
Cons
  • Very stiff free spool requiring break in

Handles Bluefin
July 22, 2020
I caught a 90lb Bluefin on it using 40lb fluoro leader. Did the job paired with Phenix Axis MH 20-40lb rod. I was able to get it to gaff in 30min.
Pros
  • Easy to service yourself. Plenty of youtube videos walking you through this process. Great line capacity for reel size.
Cons
  • Casting and stacking the line. You might want to look at the narrow version of this reel. The Downside is you lose line capacity.

New Avet Reel

I loved that I was able to choose the exact style and model reel that I wanted. There were so many colors to choose from too. It was taking a bit longer to ship than I would have liked due to covid, but I emailed them and they were able to help expedite it from the manufacturer a bit sooner. I was able to get it for my salmon fishing trips. Works SO well for the big salmon with that 2-speed. I'll never go back to 1-speed!

This is a great reel. Put 65LB braid on it and took it out to San Clemente Island here in So Cal. Pulled in a 30+ and a 40+ yellowtail on that first trip. 100% would buy again. The reel is smooth and powerful for its size.
