Avet SX G2 Lever Drag Casting Reels fill in the line class gap between Avet's original and Raptor series. Avet's Generation 2 Reels add impressive new features, like an updated frame with new look and feel, 40% more drag output, increased line capacity, and a ratcheting Glide Plate/Lever System, making one of the Avet SX G2 Reels a great choice for your next fishing trip.

Avet SX G2 Reel Features:

  • Redesigned frame with new refined look and feel
  • Ratcheting Glide Plate/Lever System, with positive button release stop at strike position, just like the Raptor Series
  • Faceted, knurled drag knob and lever grip provide tactile feel and positive grip
  • Increased line capacities like the Raptor Series, allow generous space for appropriate larger line classes
  • Refined, silent, reliable, dog and Gear Anti-Reverse System, with more gear teeth and minimal handle back-play
  • 40% more drag output, bridging the line-class-gap between the original and Raptor series
  • Optional M.C. Cast Control

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.

Neptune’s Heart SX- g2 awesome reel
July 4, 2018
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.

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)

Incredible Purchase!
January 18, 2018
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.

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.
