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.

So good I just bought my 2nd after 6 years
September 20, 2020
Just received the second MXJ5.8:1 that I have purchased. This one is for my wife. I have fished the first reel for six years landing hundreds of rockfish, lingcod, and albacore tuna. The fit, finish, and quality materials used in this reel are outstanding and the reel looks and operates as well today as the day I purchased it. The 5.8:1 gear ratio combined with the length of the handle gives it a pretty speedy retrieve but still has plenty of power to fight fish to 40 lbs. with confidence. It's made in America and most importantly, my wife thinks it's pretty! ( She's pretty too and also catches lots of fish)!!

Killed The Red Snapper in the Gulf
July 23, 2020
I purchased this reel with the expectations of doing some jigging and deep drops in in the Gulf. I didn't get to do any jigging; but, the reel hampered the Red Snapper on deep drops in the Gulf. Since the rod and reel setup is so light, I was able to fish it all day and not even come close to getting tired. Needless to say, I slayed Red Snapper. The reel is smooth and very responsive. I loaded it with 50# PowerPro with a flouro leader.... couldn't be happier. I'm looking at getting one for the wife, who doesn't even fish......

What rod would pair well with this?
1 Answer
Depending what fish you plan on targeting i would pair this reel with one of our Silverhook Medium or Med.Heavy Jigging rods, St. Croix mojo jig, or Daiwa Harrier X jigging rod,

this reel would also pair well with the new Talavera Boat rod by Shimano if you are looking for a more versatile bait/chunking set up
