PLEASE NOTE, ON 7/25 WE TOOK DOWN OUR AVET PAGES WHILE WE ADDRESSED SOME BACK ORDER ISSUES. Given that Avet now makes over 800 different models of reels, considering colors and configurations, you can see how these problems can grow. Today it appears this has been resolved, with the best efforts of the manufacturer. So, we're back up and running again, backorders should be filled tomorrow, Friday 8/1. And, I can hope we'll move ahead smoothly. Given that we support this manufacturer in greater depth, with higher volume than any other dealer in the world, and have done so for over a decade, it is our intent to continue to offer our clients the very best service, values and support with this manufacturer. We apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused by "going black" for a week. But, it was necessary to do so in our attempt to provide the kind of turn around and support that's expected by our clients.


PROMOTIONS

We have two excellent special offers going on right now on Avet's Big Game collection. First off, all reels offered receive the benefit of FREE BRAID SPOOLING - and not just any braid. On the Big Game reels for a limited time we are including Toro Tamer's 16 STRAND HOLLOW CORE SPLICEABLE SUPER BRAID, arguably the best high end super braid on the market today. The new line opens up better than any other, making hollow core rigging downright easy (that's due to the construction of the line - 16 strands verses 8-12 for most other higher quality braids). You'll get 300 yards of the best braid made plus a free reel cover, and mono topshot if required. If you prefer, you can go "solid" on the braid, and even mulit-color depth counter if that's your preference. Of course you have many other optional ways to rig up, so pay attention to the spooling options when making your selection. If you don't need the braid, we have an alternate offer - FREE PREMIUM PLIERS WITH SHEATH AND TITANIUM CUTTERS.

Your Pick: SPECTRA/BRAID - INCLUDING 12 or 16 STRAND TORO TAMER SPLICEABLE HOLLOW CORE,
or CharkBait Premium Quality Multi-Function Pliers

You choose either FREE offer. Receive either the Premium PLIERS as pictured, PLIERS or superior quality Super Braid (gel spun polyethelyne line) spooling with mono topshot (if desired) at no additional charge. Both offers represent a value of up to $80, and both are excellent.
 

Secondly, Avet has a special promotion going on now with their HXJ size reels. In the case of the Raptor version, it's a nice $105 off! (HXJ was $409 - now $369, HXJ MC was $449 - now $405, HXJ RAPTOR was $549 - now $445)


To order from this page just make your selections and click on the "Add to Cart" button or the  "Buy" link. If you run into difficulties please make use of our toll-free line and give us a call. Our phone numbers, fax and email addresses are posted  at the bottom of this page.  

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

We're proud to have been named Avet's largest retailer again this year (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012 & 2013). We stock more models, more gear ratios, more colors, with more options than any other dealer, and we've helped supply more reels to clients worldwide than any retailer. No smoke and mirrors, no false promises, we offer the best deals on the best gear, and we guarantee it.

 

Video Presentation of Avet's Big Game Series: Raptors, 30, 50, 80 & TrX Reels

I'll also suggest watching our videos on the equipment we use to wind line on the larger reels and steps we take in spooling up a reel which will be put to more demanding use.

There are a few more videos posted on our channel explaining different spooling options, use of hollow core...

 


SPOOLING/RIGGING:

Please note, you will see many spooling options for the reels listed below. It's not our intent to confuse folks, but you do have options here unlike some places and we take pride in the fact we can rig things according to your needs, applications and preferences. We have been pioneers in Super Braid / Spectra rigging and we offer a few methods of rigging the lines together beyond most retailers capability, including the standard long range Bimini to Albright knots, Served and Sato connections. We do not use simple uni-to-uni knots for connecting braid to leader, we take the time to make a better knot, one that will hold up over time and deal with larger fish. Simpler knots don't work as well. You can see videos of what we do on our YouTube channel - CharkBaitUSA. We can upgrade that connection to one of several options, the benefit with those connections is that the diameter is thinner and that allows the line to flow through your rod's guides more smoothly, has less resistance in the water and is stealthier. If you have questions regarding rigging, please give us a call or zap back an email and we can go over things with you. Bottom line, you have options with us and we're proud of our staff's ability to rig things to your needs rather than simply "slapping" things together. Our knots hold, as does our in-line rigging.


 

What's NEW?

AVET 50 Series 3 Speeds
NEW 2014 Models

IN STOCK!

80, 50 & 30 Series

Here's a surprise move by Avet, very much of a surprise to me at least. They took their innovative 3 speed design that was first offered on their 80 series this year and added that option to their very popular 50 & 30 series reels! So, now our long range anglers have something to turn heads! Yes, you can indeed turn a cow size tuna's head with this beefy brute of a reel once you drop that gear down to a 1:1 first gear.  For folks heading out on a long range trip of a lifetime, this new reel might be the best insurance of landing the fish of your dreams that's ever been made.

Not much more to say about the new 30 & 50 series THREE SPEEDS. They are the same as their other 2 speed models in terms of design, meaning they are very robust, have exceptional drag capability and offer excellent freespool performance. The new 3 speeds are available in both the narrow SDS (San Diego Special) form and as a 30 & 50 Wides. Gearing is wonderfully thought out, 4:1, 2:1 and 1:1. So, you've got speed when you need it. A reasonable low gear at 2 to 1, that's capable of pulling most fish you'll encounter. And, when things get tough, when you hook into to big ones, well, just drop her down to first gear and turn that suckers head and with the drag level these reels are capable of producing you can keep the critters head turned your way! WONDERFUL for anglers, and big time CONGRATULATIONS TO AVET FOR PRODUCING ANOTHER EXCELLENT TOOL FOR SERIOUS ANGLERS.

AVET Raptors!

We've got 'em all! Raptor models are available, even in Candy Apple RED!

Raptors are a more refined, and higher drag capacity series of reels from Avet. These take their whole game up one notch, providing truly big fish capable reels in compact sizes. Their machining is better, their operation better, and their drag capacity much greater than their size would suggest. There is less side load on the bearings as a result of increased drag capacity. Casting is flawless, and all models with the exception of the HX Wide Raptor come with Avet's super performing Magnetic Cast control. They are the best this innovative manufacturer produces, and they are made to outperform all other reels on the market.

Pictured right, the powerful and compact Avet JX Raptor.

Pictured above left, the JX Raptor. Drag the mouse over the image to change view. Pictured above right are three models of Raptor, the little SX, MX, JX/LX and the HX. All Raptors feature dual drags, magnetic cast control (with the exception of the wide), ratcheting lever, extended handle length  and extended line capacity compared to the standard models.

Made in America, and very proud of it!

HXW (wide) Raptor. The "w" model does not have cast control, also note the larger 30 size handle.


The Avet 30 Narrow and Wide  represents an upgrade of the very popular and much respected EX 4/0. The new 30 offers several enhancements which are based upon the Pro 50. There are some small differences, some operational changes, and some significant improvements. Let's go over what has changed first. The new model uses a more traditional (and loud) clicker. It does not self-disengage. The new model's lever requires you to push a button before you can ease it into the full position from strike. The weight is just a tad bid lighter than the older model. The most significant improvement advances a very impressive drag performance. The new model will provide OVER 35#'s of drag while maintaining very impressive freespool performance (the older model does 20#'s at strike w/freespool). That's right 35#'s of drag! It will button down at full to 40#'s! This is one serious reel, for serious fishermen. It's a more refined piece, both in terms of feel and finish. Like all Avet reels, this leverdrag will spin, without expensive after-market enhancement. The reel features six shielded bearings. Maintenance is easy, reliability is superior, quality of manufacture very high in terms of the machining and ultimate performance.

Given the strength and drag capability, we've had some folks opt to run these as heavy 80# rail pieces instead of 60# trollers. Certainly they'll excel at any application that makes maximum use of their freespool and braking power.

Avet 50 Series Two Speed Reels

These new reels from Avet were long awaited, and they creating quite a stir upon their introduction during the huge cow yellowfin bite a few years ago.  They're the most powerful and useful reels you're likely to encounter if you target larger gamefish. They do some things no other reel will match, and they do it without being sent off for enhancement.  They are designed for what we want to do, right out of the box!  They all spin very, very well.  They all offer six bearings, very strong drag performance, and they're all finally available! We now have a good selection of the new 50 wide and narrow and the topless 50 narrow - the San Diego Special. 

Avet first introduced these new two speed reels at the Fred Hall Long Beach show. The BIG DOG is capable of pulling 50# of drag at strike, with a full 57# at your disposal! Amazing.  The new reels are available in three colors, silver, blue and gold. Six bearings, machined aluminum, made in America, these guys are on a roll!

The 50 is a whole new game in this size gear.  It turns more drag than you need, certainly.  That means it has headroom, you're not fishing at the max.  There's no fade, no problems.  The 50W and 50N are strong reels, and like the other reels from Avet, they're well under priced for what they offer.  There's no better or more fishable 50 size reel on the market in my humble opinion.

In the fall of 2005 the long range fleet operating from San Diego found a huge school of biting yellowfin. This bite was epoch, with literally hundreds of fish over 200 pounds taken, and lots of fish over 300#! Check our Charter section to see some pictures from our own Red Rooster Charter for some proof. On our charter we had fishermen from all over the country, many of whom purchased reels from us, and many of those were Avet 50's.  The only product to have performed without a hitch were the Avet 50's. We're talking multiple fish over 200#. The big Penns and other reels of the gold variety caught fish and did well, but the freespool performance of the Avet helped the bait to swim, get noticed, and get bit. All the gear is good these days, but some is "gooder" than others. The Avet 50 is the kind.

(*Regarding Tiburon, I took one big tuna on my 30, but after the trip discovered that they had done an upgrade on the drag to handle 100# plus line. The 30 was intended as an 80# rig, I was fishing 135/150# on the reel and felt that more power would have been desired. They addressed that point, very well. Others with the modification did great with the 30 for multiple big fish. Every 30 from Tib. that we stock has the upgrade.)

Great Reel - Record Breaking Drag Performance, Unbeatable Price!
Avet's big gun 80 sets new standards for performance in a big game reel of this size. Extended line capacity verses a 50 wide is the most noticeable difference in this LARGE reel. Going after big black marlin, or for use as a kite reel targeting huge yellowfin or bluefin tuna, this is a reel that will inspire confidence and continue to perform for years and years beyond your expectation. If you are doing some deepwater swordfishing, an 80 properly rigged is a very good option for your most serious fishing. And going one step further...the Avet 80 Three Speed

Great Reel - Record Breaking Drag Performance, Unbeatable Price!
Avet's big gun 80 sets new standards for performance in a big game reel of this size. Extended line capacity verses a 50 wide is the most noticeable difference in this LARGE reel. Going after big black marlin, or for use as a kite reel targeting huge yellowfin or bluefin tuna, this is a reel that will inspire confidence and continue to perform for years and years beyond your expectation. If you are doing some deepwater swordfishing, an 80 properly rigged is a very good option for your most serious fishing.

For 2012 Avet introduced a very interesting innovation, a 3 speed 80 class reel! This reel was first shown at the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach in March, and now she's finally on the markket. The new reels allow shifting through all three gears without taking your hand off the handle. You gain the benefit of a fast high gear, wonderful for kite use or clearing trolled lines quickly. The mid gear is great for fighting  most fish, and the 1:1 low provides power for the grander marlin, deep water swordfish and cow size tuna. The new 3 speed has a reason to exist in the most dedicated big game fisherman's arsenal.

At present a new "narrow" size is available for the 80/3, however this size is also going into production for the standard 2 speed version. We have the new 80/3 narrow in our inventory (and as always you know we're talking about a real product because we present our own images from our own stock...unlike some phantoms of the 'net... The wide version of this reel will become available in about 3 weeks according to Avet, so allow 4 weeks before these are delivered. Silver, black, blue and gold colored reels well be available, and we'll probably also commission to have some red ones produced. But, at present you can probably expect a delay in delivery should you order any color other than silver (since that's what we have in our hands). Colors other than silver, expect a weeks delay for gold or blue, and perhaps a bit more like 3-4 weeks for any other color.

So, how does she work? Well, you have three positions on the push button
shifter. You must engage each gear as you move up or down the sequence
of gear options. What I found was that's it's easy going down in ratio,
there are times you can fool it when bumping up in gear, going from 1 to 3
for instance, that's no hardship. And, moving through the sequence of gears
is sensible as well. All in all, Avet has produced another VERY useful
innovation, and a dandy reel for those with the most serious of big game
fishing goals.

 Price includes 300 yards FREE BRAID and mono spooling, reel skin and shipping within continental USA.

Great Reel - Record Breaking Drag Performance, Unbelievable Price!
Avet's T-RX series reels are their best, their statement pieces made to blow the socks off all other big game reels on the market in terms of drag capability. These are their best reels, the T-RX 50W and 50 standard (narrow). These are 100# capable stump pullers. They use two drags, on either side of the spool (but are not in conflict with Accurate's patent because of the manner in which they apply pressure). They are the only reel on the market than I am aware of that allows you to change the pre-set while the drag lever is engaged! These are Avet's best big game reels. 50 Wide - now $849 and $799 for the standard size.  (Narrow available topless or with crossbar frame).

Avet also produces a 30 series T-RX in wide only. These run $699 and make little sense at the present time given their promotion on the 50 class gear and new 3 speed 30 series. We can certainly provide the piece to you if that's what your heart desires...but, note it's on the way out and not the most rational purchase given line capacity and price. I guess Avet came to the same conclusion...

 Price includes 300 yards FREE BRAID/SPECTRA and mono spooling, reel skin and shipping within continental USA.

Avet Reel Storage

Avet makes a nice pair of reel storage cases. These are a "soft" case, with adjustable storage. They include plenty of pockets to hold leader material, tools, reel clamps.... They feature some nice embroidery work, mentioning the manufacturer's name of course. The smaller case is about 14"x9"x8" with room for 6 reels up to a 30 size. The larger case is 22"x14"x12" (which is photographed below - small at right) has eight adjustable dividers capable of holding up to 8 30's or 50's. These are a quality products, and will hold your reels safely while traveling to and from a boat, or for storage at home. They are not designed for air travel and baggage check ins. For that, a hard case would be preferred...with locks.

You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)
