Avet 5.3 lever drag
I bought this reel to pair with a Shimano Trevala medium rod for jigging Striper and Blues along with night Bass eeling, I have used this combo for a few weeks now and absolutely love it, The reel feels great in my hand holds plenty of line to let the the fish run with no worries of getting spooled b4 tiring ,the drag is smooth and reel feels strong while under Battle. I plan on purchasing another Avet soon based on the few trips I have taken it out on I feel that it is a must have in my arsonal
ConsI only own 1 of these currently, None great reel for the price point

Second Avet Ive purchased
Great reel at a reasonable price. Made in the USA and extremely durable. This model has a smaller spool width so take care not to add too much line. If the reel is over wound it tends to bind if you don’t keep the line retrieve even and allow it to bunch on one side. Matced this with a Tsunami TSSPJC-681H and the rig weighs around 20 oz's
ProsSmall size and weight make it easy to fish for extended periods of time without fatigue
Cons This model has a smaller spool wudth so take care not to add to much line. If the reel is over wound it ttends to bind if you dont keep the line retriveeven.

Best reels on the market in my opinion and magic cast makes them better!
I have three Avets and I have used many....many..... more reels over the years! My buddy owns a charter boat, and another works on a party boat, plus i have my own boat, and bring guests all the time so i have the fortunate luxury of getting to try all kinds of reels and poles. Nothing really compares to these guys. They cost more money but it is worth it by a mile. These are reels that you buy if you want to hand them down to your kids and they hand them down to your grand kids! Just bought a 30/2 wide to add to my collection for sharking and WOW! no comparison! This line of reels is the New Penn in my opinion!
Prosgreat quality. Best drags on the market. Line capacity. Last years. tough as nails. beautiful finish. smooth reel action. cast as far as........Ahem....not going to say the next word out of politeness.
Consone, unless you are a person who does not like to catch fish.

Do you have left hand? This reel.
1 Answers
We do, but not in blue camo. The left handed Avet reels are only available in sliver. The reel you would be looking for is the SXJ 5.3 L/H. (TD code AVE-0304)
