I spooled it with 40lb JB solid core braid FG knot to 10ft of 60lb flouro. I like this reel because of how tiny it is. I prefer the narrow frame version of the reels because the line lays easier. It puts out 25lbs of drag which is unreal for it's size, it only weighs 16ozs. The only thing it lacks is line capacity. I think i got a little over 200yds of 40 on it. I caught a nice size cobia with it and he pulled a good bit of line off the reel. I never thought I was going to get spooled or anything like that but I could tell there was a decent bit of line missing off the reel (about 1/3). I did make a pretty long cast to the cobia to start. Towards the end of the season we started catching snapper that were averaging 10-12lbs and we caught quite a few that were 15-20lbs. I had this reel set to 22lb at full drag. It did perform very well with the bigger fish but they tended to pull a little more line off this reel than the other reels that had higher drags. I had one very big fish get me down in some structure and I lost him. After that I really never used this reel at my big fish spots and I used the bigger reels with more drag. I used this reel to fish higher in the water column and it worked excellent for that, it also worked great for butterfly jigging. Don't get me wrong, it's a great snapper reel even for the biggest of snapper... but why use it when I can use reels I have set to 30-35lbs of drag at max? I really enjoyed using it to catch beeliners and it worked great on triggers too. If I were to do this one over I might would opt for an SX or maybe an MXJ to get a little more line capacity, it somewhat limits what you can do with this reel. Then again maybe not, I really like the narrow spool. I purchased this reel for an ultra-light, compact, 2 speed bottom fishing reel for snapper. It does that just fine but it is really not ideal for lighter drag applications such as fishing for king mackerel. I guess I'm trying to compare it to the versatility of the JX a little too much. All in all it's a pretty awesome little reel.
Pros
  • light weight
  • made in america
  • 2-speed
  • stainless gears
  • shielded bearings
  • affordable compared to talicas and accurates
Cons
  • limited due to line capacity

Super reel
November 14, 2021
Great reel for 75 feet and deeper fishing heavier jigs in the salt. Super reliable and great looking. Drag system is the best. The handle is big and I like that. It's not a bass bait caster, it's for salt water.
Pros
  • Everything is great.
Cons
  • Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

ABSOLUTE UNIT OF A REEL
September 30, 2021
In the short few months I’ve owned this reel, I’ve caught several bull reds in this years red drum run. I have mine spooled with 50lb suffix braid and I can cast a mile with the help of the MC Cast. It has plenty of stopping power to put the brakes on 40” reds. Have also caught a few sandbar sharks up to 3ft. Never been worried I was under powered or felt like I was gonna be spooled. The raptor model is definitely worth the extra money.
Pros
  • Tons of drag
  • Easy to use
  • Lower gear ratio helps wench in big fish
  • Durable
Cons
  • Only con is I wish I had two

Great compact reel with two speeds and magic cast. Will be used for offshore bass and school sized tuna.

very smooth
March 6, 2021
easy to cast but the magnetic cast control makes it even smoother and easier to control, very durable and no flexing or unnecessary moving parts.
Pros
  • smooth when casting and reeling, easy to maintenance
Cons
  • not easy to find what (colors, raptor) you want in the left hand models and cost a bit more for them

Perfect grouper reel
December 28, 2020
Was looking for a lighter reel that still had the guts to handle a 30”
grouper. The Raptor 2 speed fit the Bill perfectly. Light, solid and love the 2 speed. Wife can leave the rod in the gunnel holder, flip into low speed and easily lift grouper off the bottom! Nuff said!
Pros
  • Solid drag rail that clicks to position
Cons
  • Drag has been a bit grabby durning break 9n period, but after several outings, it is smoothing out ? wish Avet would improve the the drag smoothness out of the box.

One Beautiful Reel
December 28, 2020
Did a search for ocean reels and found theses. Never heard of them. Bought one and I can't believe I've never heard of them. One of the finest reels I've ever seen and used. Wont buy any other reel from now on.
Pros
  • Quality number 10+
Cons
  • Can't find anything

Hard to beat!
December 10, 2020
This reel puts out a tremendous amount of drag for the size. Raptor drag has a much more gradual drag curve than my non-raptor avets. Super smooth. Fit and finish are excellent. Came well greased. It is a little noisier than the MXJ Raptor but still very quiet.
Pros
  • -Tons of Drag with a good drag curve
  • -Small & light
  • -Very smooth
Cons
  • -Anti-Reverse could allow for less reverse movement. I caveat that this AR seems completely bomber and indestructible.

This reel is a tank!

Throw anything at this reel. Getting your iron out there, and landing stripers and blues from the surf is what this reel is all about. Paired it with an 8-ft Shimano Teramar and it’s perfect. After getting the hang of casting with it and getting muscle memory dialed in, it’s a lot of fun. Lightweight setup with cast control and a good amount of line, just drive up to the water or jetty and fish for hours.
Easy to service too. 5 screws and you have access to everything you need to clean and lube.
This was the start of my Avet obsession!
Pros
  • Easy to service.
  • Drag for anything you could ever land from the surf.
  • Line capacity.
  • Unbelievable performance for a reel this size.
Cons
  • You?ll gonna want another, and another...

Is the raptor worth it?
November 21, 2020
I bought the reel as a multi purpose cobia reel in the spring and surf casting reel in the summer. I had a hard time deciding if the raptor was worth the money and after having it a few months ill give my opinion. For my purposes the extra drag really helps. How ever the MC seems to have little to no effect and its pretty easy to cause a rats nest if not careful, even with years of experience on similar reels and a some practice time on this on.
If you need the extra drag my opinion is to get the raptor.
If you are considering it for the MC, ive casted the same reel model without the MC and there is little to no difference which really disappointed me.
