I spooled it with 40lb JB solid core braid FG knot to 10ft of 60lb flouro. I like this reel because of how tiny it is. I prefer the narrow frame version of the reels because the line lays easier. It puts out 25lbs of drag which is unreal for it's size, it only weighs 16ozs. The only thing it lacks is line capacity. I think i got a little over 200yds of 40 on it. I caught a nice size cobia with it and he pulled a good bit of line off the reel. I never thought I was going to get spooled or anything like that but I could tell there was a decent bit of line missing off the reel (about 1/3). I did make a pretty long cast to the cobia to start. Towards the end of the season we started catching snapper that were averaging 10-12lbs and we caught quite a few that were 15-20lbs. I had this reel set to 22lb at full drag. It did perform very well with the bigger fish but they tended to pull a little more line off this reel than the other reels that had higher drags. I had one very big fish get me down in some structure and I lost him. After that I really never used this reel at my big fish spots and I used the bigger reels with more drag. I used this reel to fish higher in the water column and it worked excellent for that, it also worked great for butterfly jigging. Don't get me wrong, it's a great snapper reel even for the biggest of snapper... but why use it when I can use reels I have set to 30-35lbs of drag at max? I really enjoyed using it to catch beeliners and it worked great on triggers too. If I were to do this one over I might would opt for an SX or maybe an MXJ to get a little more line capacity, it somewhat limits what you can do with this reel. Then again maybe not, I really like the narrow spool. I purchased this reel for an ultra-light, compact, 2 speed bottom fishing reel for snapper. It does that just fine but it is really not ideal for lighter drag applications such as fishing for king mackerel. I guess I'm trying to compare it to the versatility of the JX a little too much. All in all it's a pretty awesome little reel.

Been using this reel as a go to for live baiting stripers, and casting / jigging mahi and tuna for years, never failed. Drag is strong but has a steep curve once engaged. One of the best compact reels in my fleet.

I was looking for a casting reel that was small but had good capacity. I got my hands on this and I was absolutely blown away. This reel is tiny and light but I was told it's as strong as the SX and it has the same crank and handle. It's not cheap but if you're looking for a light and VERY strong reel this is the one.

Have purchased a number of these reels from Tackle Direct. Great price, always have them in stock, color choices. The reel has over 30lbs of drag, using them for grouper and snapper fishing, and they can handle everything other than Goliaths. Light, great when paired with Shimano Trevali rods.

I have 2 Avets and they are work horses. Best part is they are light so you're not tired jigging them all day.
