Great reel!

This is a great reel for the size/function at this price. I seriously doubt you will find better at this price. It has way more drag than most can use in a reel this size. It casts very well and shifting the gears is almost foolproof.
ProsThe drag on this reel is unexpected in this size. The shifting between gears is fast and easy while fighting a fish. The different colors that are available will help to customize your harem.
ConsAttaching a safety line to the reel could be easier if something was provided on the reel clamp, even as an optional purchase.

Don't let this little reel fool you, this thing has the power to take down some large fish. I spooled this up with 300yrd Jerry Brown 50 solid and a 75yrd 30lbs mono top shot. Small, lite, power full, what else can you ask for.
ProsQuality, price point, Avet guy who has many, best reels on the market for that price point, the MC casting isn't to bad either

very solid little reel that I was able to get for a great price. The drag is silky smooth. The mc casting feature worked flawlessly. Very pleased with this product and I anticipate adding a few more to my collection when the time comes.
ProsEasy to use Smooth drag Two speed and large power handle are sweet
ConsPricey but you get what you pay for

This is a very well made small strong reel.combined with a G loomus pro blue rod 50lb braid and a good boat capt big fish well past it's lb class are on the deck.The raptor models are well worth the extra cost. If shimano made this reel it would cost $2000.

used it for the first time yesterday catching yellowtail! perfect for jigging, narrow, light. 2 speed gear worked like a charm, hi spd to entice a bite, lo spd to winch in the fish.

As OUTSTANDING Reel - Great for Wreck Fishing and Jigging in Deep Water
December 17, 2014
Avets are quality reels and are worth every penny spent on them...This particular reel is a workhorse with a great gear ratio to add in deep water fishing...AWESOME!!! Pair it up with a Shimano Trevala Rod and you will have the best combo money can buy!!!

One of the best reels in my arsenal.

Love this reel. I have had it for over an year now and I absolutely love it. I came from the world of spinning rods so I had to learn how to use this properly. Once I got the hang go it, I fell in love with it. I have bridge fished, deep dropped, surf casted, I've baited this reel and it does each equally well. It totally overbuilt for what I use it for. That being said, I wouldn't have it any other way. This is an American made gem, and you deserve to have one and cherish it and appreciate it like I do. Its made to be put to work.
ProsAmerican made. Tuff. Beautiful finish All around use

Solid Reel

Very smooth reel. The lever drag works great. I live line 10 inch bunker for stripers at a light drag setting. When they take the bait and run I slide the drag to the preset strike position and the fun begins. Also a great reel to cast with.

Compact yet Smooth and Powerful
September 25, 2014
I use these reels on striped bass to 50# and yellowfin to 70#. They are light but carry exceptionally strong gearing. The MC feature makes it particularly well suited for live lining larger bait. I chose this particular model Raptor for the higher max drag limits of 17# in the strike position and 26# full forward. I set these on the scale and they do not vary. This reel does not feel stressed one bit on these size fish. No need to gear down on the bass but it comes in handy on the tuna especially during the pinwheel. Reel is compact with a big handle. I liked the first one so much I just bought its twin. Enough said.
ProsCompact lightweight for the fish it handles....this is definitely the wave of the future. 17# drag in the strike position Very smooth drag system
ConsCouldn't think of any.....

Best Reels for the Money
June 6, 2014
One of the best reels for the price. The design makes it easy to maintain and I prefer the MC version as well as the 2 speed models.
ProsReasonable price Easy to maintain
ConsThe colored models tend to show scratches more but then, if it ain't scratched it's not being used...

this little reel is GREAT! made in usa and very proud of it!!! smooth, light, powerful, retrieve on low is in the 20s (my preference), casts very, very well, mc is a dream to use, too many good qualities to list! with its drag capabilities, those thinking about getting jx avet might as well get this gem of a reel! I paired it with a 7 ft penn bluewater carnage and they are perfect for each other.

Very well built made in the USA reel! This is a small niche reel. Perfect size for fluke and porgies but can handle just about any fish you come across.
ProsUSA made! Solid one piece frame!
