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.

This is my second one
After using my first SX for over two years I decided to purchase a second one because of the ease of use , cast ability , large handle knob and Gear ratio. I feel very comfortable fighting 5 and 10 pound fish with this reel on the bridges in the Florida Keys and it is very fun. Check out this load of yellow jacks I caught on a recent two day trip. These are primo eating fish not Jack Cravales. All caught on my SX in a screaming current . Smallest fish 12 inches largest 24
ProsNational recognition and service centers in my area of South Florida
Cons I would like to the clicker to be louder as I generally have spread of five or six rods out.

Turns hard when drag engaged
I bought this reel because it has cast control on a small lever drag reel. Quality is ok but not any better than the accurate fury that I own. What is really disappointing is when you move the lever from free to drag the handle gets progressively harder to turn the more drag you apply ....according to dealer, this is Ô€œnormalÔ€. Maybe Avet should hire someone from accurate to show them how to make a high quality and functional reel.

Great reels for the salt

Perfect Kayak nearshore jigging reel.
This reel could not be better for the price, size and power. I don't know why the industry wants to load reels with many hundreds of yards of unnecessary line for near shore fishing in depths of 100' feet or less. It makes zero sense. Also, a level wind is not necessary and only adds to the friction. This is a great reel at a great price. I cannot imagine better without paying twice as much and that would not be better. Also, the lever action drag is absolutely necessary for working the bottom of rocky structure with weight. It is a critical component of a sound fishing technique.

Sturdy reel.
Bought this reel for tog fishing. Great gear ratio for cranking tog out of the reefs. Also caught some Striped Bass and blues without an issue.
ProsLightweight, solid construction, good gear ratio, holds plenty of line for inshore.
ConsDon't overspool with line, there is no line runner and the line can build up and block the spool from turning.

Wife loves the reel. Lightweight compared to other conventional reels.
Wife has had issues using the standard boat rental reel and rods as they are bulky and heavy. Currently this AVET is on a Shimano Trevala rod and she had no problems on a 7 hour fishing trip. Wrapped with 30lb. fluro. Highly recommend this reel and the Shimano Trevala rod combo for teens and women who may not have the arm strength for longer fishing trips.
ProsLightweight, extremely smooth, and it's PINK
ConsFor people just used to 1 click dropping for just vertical deep drop fishing, might be find it a bit of a hassle as this has Free (same as 1 click), Bait (for free lining bait), Strike (initial drag fighting), and Full (all power).

Very well done unit
Got this reel to wade around in gulf surf on a 10' St Croix Avid Surf Rod. The thing is like a Red ant, hard working and high strenght to weight rato. Can wrangle the setup all day and its as powerful as a mule. The Reel and rod combo has become my favorite after a few outings. Its very well designed and machined and as good looking a unit as it is built. Priced well, and Tackle direct ships fast. I think id like to have another SX in the future and put it on an inshore rod.
ProsWell built, flush it out in a freshwater bucket, holds decent capacity of 20# test, fits all my salt water rods - Mojo surf, Avid Surf, Cal-star West coast boat rod, berkley big game rod. It fits marginally on freshwater catfish rods, but it comes with a clamp and if trigger is not in the way it can be used. I can not imagine not having the SX on a Fishing trip. Very compact and fits anywhere. Hendles very well and is light.

Just a great little reel!
This is just a great little reel. It is very good casting and it is very reliable. I have it paired with a light surfcasting rod and use it for surf fishing, where the ruggedness of the lever-action to engage/disengage the spool is a huge advantage.
ProsReliability. Smoothness of operation. Good casting ability. Magnetic cast control.
ConsNone, really. You'd have to spend two or three times as much to get a reel that matches this for performance.

A great reel that is made in the USA
At first I was not pleased with this reel. I set the hook on fish and it would slip drag and not come tight on strike. Once I adjusted the drag settings a few times I was pleased with its performance. it is a smooth drag and is small and light. It does seem a little slow on dropping down. It seems like the drag system does not release completely, like my other bigger Avets, but I am getting used to it.

Brilliant little reel!!
I ordered this online, and when I received it the first things I noticed were that it was far smaller than I had expected, and also somewhat heavier. It's built very well it would seem, and is a nice solid reel. The bit of extra weight for its size helps balance out rods its capable of fishing. This reel is small. It's the size of a baitcaster. Don't be fooled. The drag is super smooth. Full drag has plenty of punch for big fish, and fishing in 250 + ft of water all day with heavy jigs was a breeze. I've only used it on lingcod and rockfish up to 30lbs, but would be confident it could handle far bigger fish with ease. I plan to take this to fish the great barrier reef (swains) and I'm sure it will be up to the hard pulling fish, despite it's size. Thoroughly recommend.
ProsExcellent construction, drag, smoothness, and small size with decent line capacity. Little rugged beast.
ConsNone noted.
