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. 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 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.

Iíve used this reel for the last couple of years and love it. Itís even spent about an hour submerged on muddy bottom after getting knocked off the dock. Cranks super smooth and Iíve caught everything from small sea bass and fluke to medium sized shark.

Have you EVER...

Went out on a wonderful evening and Wade fished out in grass flats with an Avet SXJ 5.3?!
LET ME TELL Yuh- the 1st time I had heard that clicker goo and I mean Gooo! I knew from that point on that was going to be a reel for my personal selection. That 1st take ended up being a nice 37" Bull Red, caught off a Carolina rig. Let me explain that cast, mind you (for the moderate and experienced) this reel does not contain no worm guide as you would find on most other star drag reels and some lever drag reels.
I can cast a mile with this reel, compared to the cast of my star drag baitcaster. I've pulled many fish and I'm still currently fishing this reel. Be sure to maintain reel and rod maintenance! I'd recommend this reel. I personally enjoy fishing with this reel.
  • Love the color choices!
  • Love the durability!
  • Too bad there wasn't a con I could think of.. ooops.
  • Ohh heres one, birdsnest will occur. Once you get yours dialed in youd be casting further and fighting in no time!

Love this reel. Smaller than initially expected but great lightweight reel for flounder fishing. If buying again I would get the g2 model with more drag.

I brought the Avet SXJ 5.3 Speed Lever Drag Casting Reel in Gunmetal finish. This will be my go-to reel for black sea bass and tautog.
  • Machined out of lightweight aircraft aluminum makes for a light but tough reel.

This is my second reel and love it. Perfect for bottom fishing or jigging. Paired with a Shimano Trevala rod.
  • Lightweight and compact. I like the drag.
  • Need to put friction or hockey tape on spool before putting on braid. My Penn reels have a rubber seat but no big deal, tape works fine.

Feels Right
April 24, 2020
I bought this reel for a lighter tackle jig set up as it was on sale. The construction is great, it feels solid. fits comfortably on the rod and the handle should provide plenty of power. the lower profile will make this a great all around rod for the north east.

No matter what kind of fishing you do, these will endure whatever you throw at them. These come with hard to beat quality at a respectable price point.

Good light weight reel

I got the sxj for my girlfriend because of how light and small this reel is. And it's still strong. I am a big avet fan after my lx g2 and sx g2. Just ordered the hxw raptor for my trip to the middle grounds this summer
