If your going for a combo go with an Avet 50W/2 combo
October 15, 2018
Avets are fantastic reels, and so is Shimano, but I personally own quite a few of the JX models, LX, and an EXW30/2. They all preform remarkably well, and will last you a lifetime if you put just a little love and care into them. This rod and reel combo will easily crank in a large mako, yellowfin, large groupers, and other fish with no problem, and I get that but the Avet 50W/2 hasjust a little less drag at strike and full and is much better priced. I'm not going to tell anybody on here what to get because it's their choice to buy what they want. Would i recommend this reel? Absolutely, but i would recommend others first.
