Avet SXJ G2 Lever Drag Casting Reels fill in the line class gap between Avet's original and Raptor series. Avet's Generation 2 Reels add impressive new features, like an updated frame with new look and feel, 40% more drag output, increased line capacity, and a ratcheting Glide Plate/Lever System, making one of the Avet SXJ G2 Reels a great choice for your next fishing trip.

Avet SXJ G2 Reel Features:

  • Redesigned frame with new refined look and feel
  • Ratcheting Glide Plate/Lever System, with positive button release stop at strike position, just like the Raptor Series
  • Faceted, knurled drag knob and lever grip provide tactile feel and positive grip
  • Increased line capacities like the Raptor Series, allow generous space for appropriate larger line classes
  • Refined, silent, reliable, dog and Gear Anti-Reverse System, with more gear teeth and minimal handle back-play
  • 40% more drag output, bridging the line-class-gap between the original and Raptor series
  • Optional M.C. Cast Control

Best reels on the market in my opinion
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.
Cons none, unless you are a person who does not like to catch fish.pleae make these in Dorado.

Great little reel
Great little reel with allot of power. The addition of the ratcheting guide plate is great. Adjusting the drag is much smoother.
