Avet Single Speed Reels
Avet single speed reels include industry leading features unlike any other reel on the market. Featuring an adjustable strike pre-set lever drag system, precision machined 6061-T6 aluminum and stainless steel components, 8 rubber sealed stainless steel ball bearings, stainless steel gears and Avet's smooth, powerful Avedrag dry drag system. Avet single speed reels are at the peak of quality and performance. All Avet single speed reels are available with or without their M.C. Cast control system. (except HXW)

Avet 2-Speed Reels
Avet 2-speed reels include all of the quality features of our single speed reels, with 2-speeds. The simple, yet reliable gear shift mechanism built into the 2-speed models is so easy to operate that it becomes second nature almost immediately. The push button located at the center of the handle arm permits shifting between the high and low gears without your hand ever leaving the handle knob, and can be shifted with or without pressure, so you can shift while cranking, or when a fish is running. All Avet 2-speed lever drag casting reels (SX-HX) are available with or without their M.C. Cast control system.

Avet M.C. Cast Anti-Backlash / Cast Control
Avet's revolutionary M.C. Cast (Magic Cast) adjustable magnetic anti-backlash cast control system is available as an option on all of their single and 2-speed casting reels, SX through HX, and is a standard feature on the Raptor Series Reels (excluding the HXW Raptor). The M.C. Cast control system incorporates Avet's Patented Adjustable Intensity Polar Amplification Technology to create the most efficient and easy to use cast control system for a conventional style reel. From the lightest bait to heavy lures, the M.C. Cast Control System is simple to use, even if you have never before cast a conventional style reel. Simply place your thumb on the spool to cast, swing, remove your thumb from the spool and let it fly! You will only need to thumb the spool when the lure hits the water.

Avet Raptor Series Reels
Avet Raptor Series Reels are the cutting edge in compact large game reels. These reels are consistently landing shockingly large fish in relation to their compact size. Designed for use with the ultra thin, super strong superbraid lines available today, it's now possible to target large game species with a reel half of the size and weight compared to a reel traditionally designed for similar monofilament line and drag capacities. And the Raptor has the drag and cranking power to back it up.

The Avet Raptor Series comes standard with Avet's innovative 2-speed gears, M.C. Cast control, and a ratcheting drag lever with a positive stop strike button to prevent accidental advancement past strike. Featuring Avet's patented DUAL DIRECT DRIVE Full Surface Caliper Brake System, Raptor models put out nearly twice the drag pressure of the original Avets! There's a Raptor model that will stop any fish in the ocean, yet small and light enough to cast. If you find a fish too big for a Raptor, you probably wouldn't want it near your boat! The Raptor Series reels are the same sizes as the original Avet reels, with enhanced line capacities, and each are engineered and built to fish several line classes heavier than the original Avet Reels.

Well built, easy to cast
June 20, 2019
Very solidly built reel. The narrow spool on the 'J' models makes it easy to thumb the line and control the cast. This is my first lever drag reel and takes a little getting used to but I do like it.
Cast control is on the strong side but that not a bad thing. Overall, a great reel.

This is the second AVET reel I've owned. Would put it up against any of the competition. This is a nice light weight reel with plenty of capacity for anything inshore. Everything on the reel works flawlessly. Love the MC option which I wish I'd have gotten on my other reel.

Bought the six 5.3 was worried about not having the mc. Haven’t used a bait caster in about 5 years. Not a problem with this little guy. Cast farther than any reel I have. Only backlash once. I have been catching a lot of oversized reds out of my kayak. The reel handles big reds with ease.
ProsYou won?t find a quality reel for the price. Light weight and easy to cast.
ConsNONE!

Nice reels

Just what you expect from Avet.
ProsSmooth and strong drag, durable.
ConsNot sure how well the MC actually works. You can turn it into a birds nest, not a great casting reel.

Hello, sx or mxj, which one I should get for using in south florida for slow jigging and bottom fishing on the reef and wrecks, 40 or 50lb braid.

Hi, I am a striped bass fisherman from Maine and I was wondering wich avet reel would you think would be good for live lining mackerel and trolling. Sxj5.3, Sx 5.3?

Both would work for those applications but the SX would likely be more appropriate because of the higher line capacity.

from long island, ny asked:
June 8, 2014
Hello. Quick question on avet reels. I plan on ordering one from you. Trying to decide between the sx and mx series. Will be the mc model. Will be used mostly for striped bass on long island. Is there a power difference between the two, it seems the drags are the same? I currently use a penn international 965 and am looking for a little more power. Would either of these provide more power than the 965 or is there another reel I should look at?
1 Answer
Both the SX and the MX are extremely powerful. The MX is larger than the SX and gives you more line capacity. For your application, you would be fine with the SX.
