Absolutely fantastic reels
Was always a Penn guy but i switched over to an Avet after trying a friend of mines new one. These reels have great drag power behind them and will catch fish bigger than what they are rated for.

Great all around reel
Used mostly with low gear for bottom fishing on the boat. Powerful and smooth low gear, cranked up 20+lb fish with ease and without pumping the rod. I got the two speed because that was the only way to get the low gear these days. Works great on the beach too. I suck with my thumb, that MC really helps with long cast. The high gear was noisy in the beginning but feels better now after a year used. Very easy to take care, I just wash it with water after every use, been using it hard for about a year now without any issue. Great American made reel and worth the money.

The highest recommendation with no reservations

Neptune’s Heart SX- g2 awesome reel
I am a steady customer of tackle direct and recently purchased an AVET SX G2 reel .(Neptune’s heart). I am a fan of Avet
Equipment ; and have purchased a number of These
Reels from TACKLE DIRECT . Their customer service
Fast and reliable delivery time to me is always
Consistent.i was able to use my new reel within days
of receiving it on a fishing trip on the ocean. On the first drop of the trip on employing my new reel I
Landed a magnificent double header Black Sea bass
Catch . I was able to use all of the new features of the
Avet SX G2 to bring the two fish into the boat as they were putting up a significant battle .
I highly recommend AVET equipment and tackle direct
As the place to purchase it.
ProsTackle DIRECT : Great source of supply for all equipment AVET REELS: very reliable piece of fishing equipment ;moderate price / good value

Lever vs Star
So these were my first lever drags. I've owned many star drags. These definitely take some time to get used to.
Pro; smooth,looks awesome,tons of drag,lightweight,cast great,hold lots of braid
Con; drag is linear with cast preload, no level wind, more drag = harder to reel, need to put into cast mode if you max drag lever and need more
You definitely have to find a happy medium with the cast preload and max or even minimum drag. I find this hardest casting lighter weight with large fish (sturgeon) or heavier weight with smaller fish (striper)

Incredible Purchase!
Not much more I can say about this reel except that I love it. Primarily use this baby when I do offshore fishing for cod, seabass, Ling & she handles like a dream. The drag system is nice and smooth & with the G2 models it comes with a improved bearing system with max drag at 20lbs! This reel is just fun to use.
ProsFun to use, great drag system, can use for a number of different things.
ConsNone thus far

Quality reel
This little reel is light and small but powerful enough for tuna and yellowtail under 40lbs.
Most of the time I use it all day..

Awesome reel
The reel has a very nice color combination as far as aesthetics. Performed well chunking for blues, didn't have any issues what so ever. Have heard from other anglers that you can even troll with the SX series, but would probably go MXL for it, or JX depending on trolling speed. Granted the G2 drag is that of the first generation JX. Was my second avet purchsae and was happy with it.

Worth the investment
I have one of these SX5.3 G2 reels and am buying yet another one on sale. Used them for the first time on a long range trip out of San Diego and they were a total blast on big yellowtails and smallish yellowfins. Great castability and a smooth drag. I wasn't a fan of the first gen reels, but the G2 Avets have addressed most of my concerns with increased line capacity, a ratchet lever drag system that stays where you put it and increased drag capacity. Time to get another one. I am a northeast charter boat capt and these are my personal reels, plus made in the USA. Gotta love it. Use these to catch just about everything that swims in my 23' charter boat's range, including fluke, sea bass, togs, tuna, stripers, blues, small sharks and deepwater wreckfish.
ProsSmooth drag with higher max capacity on G2 models Ratchet lever drag that stays in place where you set it Increased line capacity great finish on the gold model
ConsNoisy gears, but this is a minor nit

Worth every penny!
I bought 2 avet sx mc G2's from tackle direct and I love them both. Very smooth reels and cast very well on a 12ft surf rod.

super little Avet
I lost count how many 20lb+ fish I hauled in with this little light Avet SX. The G2 drag a a dream come true and is equivalent to more expensive reels. The rubber beefy handle fit perfectly in your palm. Maintenance is as easy as rinsing with water and wiping down. Highly recommend.
ProsDrag, comfy handle

I am looking for a avet for fishing for sea bass, tog, porgy, bluefish and striped bass at deepest I would be fishing in 150 ft of water with 8 oz lead should I get the sx or the sxj size.
1 Answers
I'd suggest the SX over the SXJ for your applications. The SX will give you more line capacity which will make the reel a bit more versatile for a multitude of applications.

Hi TD. I have been looking at this reel and wondering if it would be a good reel for trolling for kingfish, bottom fishing for snapper with 3-4 oz weights and fishing for sharks in the surf. Also, what rods would be a good match for those applications. Thanks
1 Answers
The G2 SX would be good bottom fishing reels. I wouldn't use this reel fishing for sharks from the surf. A rod to pair with the Avet SX G2 would be the Shimnao Trevala jigging casting rods or the Tsunami Trophy jigging casting rods. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.
