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?
Nice strong drag, heavy duty frame with a small reel feel. Excellent reel.

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

Great reels
Have 2 of the 5.3 Avets amazing reels. We tried them jigging haddock this past spring. Was a blast on light gear landed some nice cod as well unfortunately had to release the cod. Bought this 5.8 for haddock paired with Trevalas F serious jigging rod can't wait to try it out in the spring

Love this reel
I am a big fan of Avets, and the mxl is a great all around reel for inshore/offshore in California targeting yellowtail an other pelagics. The G2 upgrades addresses my only issues with this great reel. The clicker is stronger and the drag is easier to adjust when it first engages, making it much easier to slow troll live bait.
ProsImproved clicker More drag and easier to set

Do you have a left handed version in stock of this reel? Which colour and if not what MX reels do you have available in left handed?
1 Answers
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.
