Is there anybody else out there who owns an Avet?

I just picked up my first Avet an SX (20 lbs class reel). All i can say is wow.

I never understood why so many people bragged about freespool when fishing for bass. I kept thinking why would you want to increase your chances of backlashing? Lets just say the light bulb went off in my head after getting better at casting this thing. (It's all about the thumb.)

I now have a better respect for team diapers, i'm sure when they first started with baitcasters they didn't have brakes on them.

  Anyway i'm proud to say i own an American made, awesome peice of machinery!

Maybe for big swimbaits or to catch stipers but otherwise a bit heavy and overkill for bass.  I'd hate to lug that beast around all day to cast a craw or spinnerbait or flip a jig.

I have an Avet MXJ, step higher than the sx, I love it.  I use mine for fish up to sailfish, definitely too big for bass.  Avets are popular in California and as I've read guys surf fish with these reels and can cast them up to 600'..WOW!

I magged mine, but since have removed the mags.

All you need for yellowtail is 5-8000 spinning reel on a 10/20 rod, lighter if you are freelining.
