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.

Tiny Powerhouse
SXJ Raptor 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.
Proslight weight made in america 2-speed stainless gears shielded bearings affordable compared to talicas and accurates

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.
Consnone, unless you are a person who does not like to catch fish.

Amazing reel
This reel is amazing. It is small, but an absolute workhorse. I got the SX 6/4 MC 2-speed and it’s worth every penny. The small size holds a good amount of line and is so stable while reeling in. The MC feature is incredible. The reel has a reverse magnetic drive system that slows the spool during cast to virtually eliminate backlash, yet you can huck lures for miles. I paid the little extra for the 2-speed model and that is an awesome feature as well. Reeling in a 25 lbs lingcod from 300 ft. deep is much easier now. All it takes to switch gears is the flip of a switch on the crank handle. I highly, highly recommend this reel, or any Avet MC reel for that matter. So versatile, I use it for bottom fishing at 300ft., use it for inshore casting, and even surf fishing. All pieces are made from solid blocks of aircraft grade aluminum, and they are made right here in Southern California. Bad ass reel

I caught a King Mackerel yesterday with this reel. I thought I would get spooled but the lever drag and two speed makes all the difference . It's the best reel I own.

Great reel
Great reels and they are easy to maintain. Have used these on a kayak in saltwater for 20 trips and I just dunk them into a bucket of freshwater as recommended after each trip and it's as smooth as it was when it was new. Very durable reels with alot of cranking power. I've winched bat rays that were 50#+ with these.

Awesome little reel
Got for Gf, different story, but the reel is incredible. Smaller than I expected but matched up with a Shimano jigging rod, its the perfect setup for anyone and perfect for a smaller female companion.

Big reel preformance in a small package!
The SX Raptor is my absolute favorite reel for California yellowtail! Filled with 60lb braid, I can fish a wide array of topshots between 20lb – 50lb fluorocarbon without worrying about drag capability. Fishing a small lightweight reel allows me to cast live baits further, plus it’s more enjoyable to fish than a larger tank of a reel with equal or less drag performance.
ConsExtremely soft "clicker", but rarely use it, so not a deal breaker...

Top notch reel
One of the best reels I've ever used. Only reason for four stars instead of five is because I'm a lefty and the only color available for a lefty is silver, but the reel operates flawlessly.

Loose handle
I was ecstatic when I got this reel in the mail today. But after I turned the reel handle a few times to get a feel of how the 2 speed mechanism worked, I noticed that it was loose. I thought when turning the handle, it would be smooth (which it is), and would feel nice and TIGHT, but the handle is loose and goes BACKWARDS, freely, about an inch worth? I hate when that happens! It feels like the reel is a cheap knock-off. Not what I was expecting, especially from a $400~ American-made reel. Is that supposed to happen? Is that normal? If it's not, ... talk about first impressions... I don't think I'll ever purchase an avet reel, ever again. If that's supposed to be like that, then all is well. I'll still spend my hundreds of dollars on a different reel.
ProsLooks nice, sleek, compact, and powerful.
ConsFeels LOOSE, due to the handle turning backwards freely an inch. Also, perhaps you can seal the reel in an air-tight, plastic bag before you sell it. After I opened the box, I found that the reel was filthy!
