We're proud to have been named Avet's largest retailer again this year (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016). 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. It's our knowledgeable staff that is responsible for getting the points across to folks - educating fishermen about what set's Avet apart in the fishing reel business. If you have questions about Avet reels, the folks here can provide accurate information.

Lefties:

Unlike most manufacturers (with the exception of Accurate), Avet has offered most models in left and right hand retrieve. As of this date, October 2015, Avet has announced that they will produce ALL models in true left hand retrieve.  In the past one standard color was available, silver. But, a person could special order a lefty in any of Avet's wide range of colors for an upcharge of $50. This has now changed. The lefties are now available in SILVER, BLACK, BLUE and GOLD - ONLY. If your order a colored lefty, it is a special order, there can be a delay in production. You have a choice of four different colors to suit your tastes. SILVER WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR COSTS, HOWEVER OTHER COLORS WILL ADD a $50 EXPENSE, and will likely delay receipt of your order.  Sorry about that, but please do note, Avet does more to accommodate lefties than any other manufacturer in terms of building and offering essentially custom production for you.

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. Before we get into reigging, we also do a few things to the spool of your reel to aid in corrosions prevention and line slippage. We pack the line properly. We have been pioneers in Super Braid / Spectra rigging since this business started, 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. 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.

NEW FROM AVET

Avet G2 Series Single & Two Speeds

For 2017 Avet has announced the new G2 Series (as in generation II) reels to their line. The new reels offer increased drag performance, important for those fishing heavier lines. Also, similarly to the Raptor series, the spool and frame allow for a modest increase in line capacity and smoother performance at higher drag settings. These single drag reels increase the flexibility of the models in comparison to the standard series. For instance, the new JX model now can fish 50# very well, while the standard JX is really a 40# and down piece, the JX/LX G2's can cover 40/50 and even 60# lines with appropriate drag performance. That's a significant upgrade in performance over the standard series reels, and the lever upgrade is also quite useful in setting more precise drag levels and in operation. Whether or not the G2's upgraded performance is right for you depends upon the line tests you plan on fishing in my estimation. Again, back to the JX, if your intent is to fish the piece at 30-40 lb test leaders, then there's no big reason to spend the extra money. However, if you are like me, and want to fish 40-50# on a JX, then the upgrade is very significant and makes the piece a value when compared to the Raptor version. For Avet to provide us fishermen such a range in products, all geared to the types of fishing we do, well it's wonderful and demonstrates that these folks are indeed listening to their clients and coming to market with products that suit all anglers. With respect to the SX/MX series G2's, I see a logical generational improvement. The drag curves were fine with the earlier models for fishing say 30# and down, really better suited for 25# and down lines. Given an increase in drag of about 40% above the previous models, 13 lbs at strike, we're really still looking at fishing 30# and down rather than 40 - but there's going to be less sideload pressure on the spool bearing, greater longevity when the reel is pushed to higher and more appropriate drag settings for 30 lb line and down.

(Just to help in the confusion department: I've had a few calls from folks asking when the G-2 HX's will be produced. Well, they won't be made, the HX really was the first G-2 offered! The SX-LX series reels are following that reel series design, incorporating it's features across the new G-2 models. The first generation SX, MX, JX & LX will stay in the line, at least for now. Feeling from Avet is that the first gen models are most appropriate for those fishing light drag loads, so they still have a reason to be produced...and of course they cost a bit less, so Avet customers have more flexibility in putting their dollars to the best use for their particular applications.)

 


MXL 6/4 G-2's

SX 6/4 MC - G-2

 

The first production will be in the Neptune's Heart color combo - bronze and red as pictured above. This will carry a $10 higher cost than the standard colors. We've now received SX and MX series reels in most standard colors as well as the two color Neptune. The JX/LX series will follow this month - could likely be end of January before the larger two models are completed.

Avet HX

Avet HX Single Speed!

Here's another excellent reel from Avet, one that they've been planning for well over a year's time. For many Alaska bound fishermen it's a very worthwhile piece. The single speed HX is your basic 4/0 Narrow - updated. The new HX will turn 22#'s at strike and 28#'s of drag at the full position of the lever. The gear ratio is a very useful 4.2:1, and the weight is 25 ounces. Spooled with 50# line, you'll get 285 yards of line capacity. Alternatively, with 80# Spectra you'll have a good 300 yards plus room for a modest topshot. In a way, you might think that the firm that created the small two-speed reel market was going backwards, but that's not the case. Two speeds are great, but for some fishermen it's beyond the finances and also beyond that which is needed to get the job done. For a fellow bottom fishing, or targeting larger size halibut in Alaskan or Pacific Northwest waters, this could be exactly what you're looking for. a good strong reel at a very fair price.

Avet HX 5/2

The "Hoo-X"

Avet's done it again, set the bar a bit higher for other manufacturers and created a must-have reel for serious anglers. The new HX or Hoo-X as we affectionately call 'em is one of the more versatile reels you'll come across. It's a compact true 4/0 size similar to a Penn Baja Special, but a bit lighter in weight. Like all Avet reels, it's a lever drag that spins and casts superbly. Six rubber shielded ball bearings that will put up with abuse, huge carbon fiber drag, ergonomic handle... Actually, this reel features 8 ball bearings in total! It's rather tall, so you'll bring in a good amount of line per crank, and the gearing is very well thought out. They are geared at 5.4:1 and 2.4:1 on the narrow J model and 1.9 for the low gear on the standard and wide version of the HX. You've got speed for attracting a bite from a wahoo, but great cranking power for dealing with tuna and even marlin. They'll be great sailfish reels, too. The stylish lugs can also be reversed (lugs/plugs) for situations when having an attachment point is unimportant. You do have options. This is another Avet reel that really has no equal, and fills so many applications that it really will become a must have piece. Let's talk a bit about the drag. Avet claims they'll do 20#'s of drag measured at strike, and still offer GREAT freespool performance for casting. We've tested them, they perform as stated. The reels will most commonly be used for fishing 50-60# lines. This has been a much hyped and talked about reel on all the message boards over the past few months, and now it's a reality. 

Extended use report...since I bought one too, the HX is one of the most versatile big game reels made today. It will take wahoo, larger grade tuna, marlin, pretty much anything that it's line capacity allows. The drag is there, casting performance is very good, and it's not too big to handle comfortably. Like the JX, the HX begs to be used, and it will be used often by any fisherman lucky enough to own one.

Avet makes the HX in three configurations, all based upon the same reel.

Two Speed HX Series Reels

HX - most use 300 yds of 80# Spectra topped with ~140 yds of 60# mono on the standard width HX. The narrow will hold much less, more like 300 of 65 with a topshot of about 50 yds 50#. Certainly these versatile reels lend itself to many applications, rigging ranges from 50 to 80# on top, so there are applications requiring longer 60# Spectra up to 135# Spectra backing.

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.

Avet HX Raptor Three Speeds
New Reels - IN STOCK!

2016 INTRODUCTION
New Three Speed Reels

Avet has added two new models to their Raptor lineup. Both the HX and HX Raptor now have a new option, three speeds! Gearing is well thought out, faster on the top end, powerful in the midrange and a stump pulling 1/3:1 on the low gear. Raptors represent Avet's best effort, dual drag, high drag capability, excellent freespool performance for superior casting, magnetic cast control (on the HX not HXW), harness lugs, progressive ramp for the lever... Of course, like all Avet reels the new HX Raptor 3 speeds are made from machined aluminum, anodized for long term durability, carbon fiber drag material...

Standard Avets are great reels, the Raptors take the performance to the next level, and now with three speeds the versatility increases. The lower low gear will prove a huge advantage when dealing with a larger fish, and the faster high gear will improve jigging effectiveness. Reels have just arrived to our shop, most colors are here now, with some not completed (green, orange, purple, camo). We have silver, red, blue, black and gunmetal at present. Gold colored reels have also been completed, will be arriving later in the week. Reels are in stock now and available for speedy delivery. (Pictured above HX in blue, HXW in Gunmetal)

10/17 - NEW - HXJ 3 Speeds are now being made, limited colors, small batch.

AVET Raptor Special Production
Dorado/Mahi/Dolphinfish Colors
Free Super Braid Rigging (Including hollow-core)
or 10% Off Offer w/o other additional incentives
(free line does not apply w/10% Off price)

A few years ago Avet created a special production run of "Raptorskin" colored reels. These limited production reels were unique, and became collector items - and darn nice fishing pieces, too. At ICAST 2015 Avet showed off their newest limited production color - in Dorado. Availability is limited. This multi-color anodization process is expensive to create, but it's unique and distinctive. Avet SXJ, SX, MXJ, MXL, JX, LX, HX and HXW models are being produced - only Raptor Series models are included in this production. The reels are only available in standard right hand form - no lefties. From $493 to $612.

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.)
