Great Quality Reel
Love the G2 models- skeptical how I’d feel about the extra pieces the drag consists of- but love the way it functions and the extra drag- will only buy G2 models now

Money well spent
I have to say that I am never disappointed when it comes to the Avet reel. Once agin they have created a fine piece of equipment with the new G2 equipped with the magic cast feature. All I can say is I love it and money well spent.
ProsEverything you could want in a reel

Had been using a friends G2 MXL all summer catching everything from fluke to Cobia and King Mackerel and it’s just a winch of a reel. High quality parts make high quality reels in my opinion, and the Avet Reels use the best parts in the price range and above it. Casting with the MC is rediculously easy and the drag ramp on the G2 is such a nice touch over the first generation. I have it spooled with 500 yards of 40# power pro and a 120 yard mono topshot since I fish live bait on structure very often. With the increased drag on the G2 the MXL is the perfect size reel for so many applications.
ProsDrag increase is so nice on this small piece, ramp LD is a great addition, MC makes casting silly easy

Upgrades are excellent in G2
This reel now has 14/20 pounds of drag in the G2 and it absolutely changes the game compared to the original. I put 500 yards of 40lb braid on and still had space for 80-100 or so yards of 40lb Momoi Mono as a topshot. I can tell you a 38lb Cobia in NC was not a problem on this reel at 40lbs paired with a Seeker 7’ MH. The LD is much easier to judge now with the ramp and spend the money for the MC it’s $35 but makes it so versatile pitching baits or casting heavy iron. Great reel I fished my buddies all summer and got my own today in blue and couldn’t be happier.
ProsUpgraded drag pressure to 14 at strike 20 at full. Lever drag ramp makes judging drag soo mich more accurate and button to go into full is a great new feature. Machining I think is better although it?s Avet so it?s always been great.
ConsIf you?re looking for a silky smooth reel it?s probably not this but I prefer catching fish over how smooth it is.

Awesome Reel
I have owned many avets and have never been let down by a single one. The generation two reels do not disappoint. The new lever drag on the generation two reels is my favorite addition since it gives the ability to set the drag much more easily than the original models.

Versatile reel
Used for everything from rock fish and ling cod in CA, to salmon in AK, to yellowtail and bottom fish in Baja. Decent amount of drag and line capacity, and a comfortable size and weight. Good retrieve speed too for jigging.

Best reels on the market in my opinion
I have three Avets and I have used many....many..... more reels over the years! My buddy owns a charter boat, and another works on a party boat, plus i have my own boat, and bring guests all the time so i have the fortunate luxury of getting to try all kinds of reels and poles. Nothing really compares to these guys. They cost more money but it is worth it by a mile. These are reels that you buy if you want to hand them down to your kids and they hand them down to your grand kids! Just bought a 30/2 wide to add to my collection for sharking and WOW! no comparison! This line of reels is the New Penn in my opinion!
Prosgreat quality. Best drags on the market. Line capacity. Last years. tough as nails. beautiful finish. smooth reel action. cast as far as........Ahem....not going to say the next word out of politeness.
Consnone, unless you are a person who does not like to catch fish

I absolutely love this reel. I use mine bottom fishing off Jupiter, FL for snapper primarily. I can easily bring in anything on the reef worth eating in a jiffy. Solid as a rock. Easy to clean. Very strong.

Avet MXL G2 5.8 MC Single Speed Reel - Neptune's Heart $304.99
Matched this reel with a 6'6" XXH boat rod. Went out on a cod trip out of Rhode Island the first time with the reel. It performed very nicely. Good balance, good drag performance.
ProsHandled 10lbs cod very nicely. Solid construction. Feels like a well built machine. Good magnetic control (MC) response. Love the new color Neptune Heart. Caught the eye of other anglers on the boat.
ConsThe retrieve is not as smooth as my Shimano Trinidad. Would like to see higher gear ratio in future models.

Great reel, just wish it had a little more drag
I absolutely love the look, feel and quality. Retrieve is super smooth and drag adjust is simple and smooth. I would have rated it 5 stars if it just had a little more drag, but I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. My only advice is I certainly would have bought the MC version had I realized how freely the spool turns. There is virtually no friction at all, which is great unless you forget to apply a little thumb and it over winds.
ProsHigh quality, well built, super bearings
ConsNot quite enough drag, wish I had bought the MC version

The G2 Avets are not currently available in left hand. The standard series Avets are available in left hand but silver is the only color option.

Hi there. Looking for a light compact reel to be used for light tackle game fishing in Cairns Australia. Running braid backing with a 6 - 10kg topshot. Mahi mahi, mackerel, small black marlin, sails etc, reel will also be used as a switchbait reel for sails and floating livebaits for Spanish mackerel. How do you think this reel would suit. Cheers

The Avet MXL G2 Lever Drag Casting Reels will be a great selection to choose from targeting those species of fish.
