Was always a Penn guy but i switched over to an Avet after trying a friend of mines new one. These reels have great drag power behind them and will catch fish bigger than what they are rated for.

I purchased one of these reels to use for pier fishing in northeast Florida. I spooled it with 50-pound braid. We paddled it off the beach to see if we could get a shark. After about an hour we had a run. The fish ripped 500 yards of line straight out. We locked the drag down and stopped the fish. After a thirty minute fight we landed the 102-pound southern stingray. The reel had absolutely no problems, even though I know paddling off the beach is not what this reel is made for. This reel is a powerhouse.
ProsPowerful Smooth Drag High max drag Lightweight
ConsDrag heats up very fast

Super smooth. Have caught a ton of fish with this reel. Only issues are that the clicker is quiet and doesn't provide much tension. I actually shortened the springs to stiffen it up. Also the drag is difficult to set when it first engages, which makes slow trolling live bait trickier. Thankfully both issues are addressed by the G2 series
ConsSoft, quiet clicker

October 3, 2015
This is more of a box opening review since I have not used the reel. It looks and feels heavy duty. Everything I read says they are stout reels. The clicker button is super hard to push..I Hate that. When reeling, it's not smooth at all, and I guess that's how it's made. My thought is (take it or leave it) that Avet reels probably shine more on their LX line and bigger when you're going for big shark ect. The JX I got now seems pointless for me. This is my fault, not the reels. After receiving this reel I figured I'd keep it just to test and see if it goes on me. Other then that, in the $230 range, I love the Shimano Toriums. Just as much drag, smoother and easier to use.
ProsSeems well made in USA
ConsNot smooth, very hard clicker button.

This reel is lightning fast casting and retrieving. Very easy to use, and very smooth! I would caution those new to casting a conventional to get the mc model because of how ridiculously fast this thing free spools!(with 50lbs braid and 3 oz of weight on a 7'6" jigging rod, I cut a hole in the thumb of a new pair of mechanics gloves after 3 casts!) It is my primary surf reel, and I use it on the boat for jigging and working surface baits. It has never skipped a beat. I love the simplicity of removing 3 screws and the drag preset knob and the reel breaks apart into its major components for washing out sand and salt from the surf. If I had gotten the mc 2 speed, it could have replaced all of my reels save for my big land based shark reels! My only gripe is that with the standard drag cam, the drag is almost and off/on switch. It ramps up very fast. Avet offers a less aggressive cam for $15 which I installed on mine and lets me utilize the smooth power of the big carbon drag.
Prossimple but tough construction absolutely beautiful lightweight smooth fast
Consdrag cam a little too aggressive for my taste(easily remedied with a $15 south florida drag cam from avet)

I've fished this reel hard this season with the phenomenal pelagic bite we've had out here in SoCal. From throwing the popper for tuna and dorado off kelp paddies to yo-yoing the iron for large yellowtail, this reel has held up to everything I've thrown at it.
ProsLow maintenance reel and easy breakdown
ConsNone that I've experienced

If your new to saltwater fishing this should be the first reel you purchase. 20 pounds of drag and great for 25-40 pound mono. This is a jigging or live bait real. You can use mono or braid but I prefer mono for jigging so I get that line stretch.

I use this reel for trolling with lead core line for Striped Bass. It is very well made; lightweight, sensitive drag and plenty of line capacity.
