Nice upgrade
December 4, 2019
Having a good number of Gen 1's and very happy with them I didn't see me needing a Gen 2 but it was pointed out that they had a much louder clicker so the first chance I got to handle on I found it to be true and the changes to the frame and the lever drag changed my mind , A needed one well it will be more than one over time . Awesome reels worth the price .

With the new G2's, I've been able to down size from the G1 MXL's to the G2 SX's and have plenty of line capacity in an even more compact size. Love the new ratcheting lever drag, the extra line capacity, less handle back play and upgraded drag. Love it!

I have 5 Avet reels, no failures, little maintenance, great factory service from an American company at good prices. Love the magic cast, almost cheating, very hard to get a bird's nest even if you were to try!

Absolutely fantastic reels
December 30, 2018
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
November 1, 2018
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.

Lever vs Star
February 12, 2018
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)

Dear Tackledirect,

I've had the SX MC 5.3 reel for surfcasting for over 10 years? and I'm interested in buying another G2 SX MC 5.3. Will the G2 series cast as far as the previous SX or are the internal mechanics different that it slows down freespool too much?  

Thanks in advance.

1 Answer
The G2 has no effect on the cast control on the reel. As long as you get the MC model it will be the same!

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 Answer
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 Answer
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.
