Avet MXJ 5.8 Reels

The Avet MXJ reels are saltwater lever drag reels designed for big game species applications. The 5.8 MXJ reels, from Avet, are a slimmer version of Avet's MXL series reels designed for those who prefer a slimmer profile. Other than the slimmer profile, there is no difference between the two; the MXJ maintains the same features, components and fishability Avet's MX series has become known for. The MX Series reels are designed for the 20-30lb test line sizes; a slight increase from the SX series which is best suited for line sizes of 12-20lb. Machined from high grade aluminum and stainless steel components, the one piece frame Avet MXJ Reels exhibit strength and rigidity yet remain rather light in weight. Their anodized finish insures the reel will resist corrosion from direct contact with the salt and its also responsible for the reel's sleek look. Casting and free spooling with Avet's MXJ Reels is very smooth due in large part to the use of eight stainless steel ball bearing and precision machine stainless steel gears.

The MXJ Reels demonstrate the strength to fight a wide variety of big game species. Once hooked up, anglers will appreciate the reel's strength and fighting power due in large part to Avet's patented, indestructible, silent dog and anti-reverse system. Additionally, the use of Avedrag dry carbon fiber drags provide superior stopping power, smoothness and wear resistance. The MX series reels are capable of producing 9lbs of drag at the strike position while maintaining free-spool. When buttoned down completely the reel will deliver a full 16lbs of max drag force. We offer the Avet 5.8 MXJ Reels in both the standard and M.C.(Magic Cast) versions in four color options: Black, Blue, Gold and Silver. Left hand models of both the standard and M.C. versions are only available in the silver color.

Avet MXJ M.C. Models

Avet's revolutionary M.C. Cast (Magic Cast) adjustable magnetic anti-backlash cast control system is available as an option on all of the MXJ Reels - You'll notice they are distinguished by the MC designation in the product option. The M.C. Cast control system incorporates Avet's Patented Adjustable Intensity Polar Amplification Technology to create the most efficient and easy to use cast control system for a conventional style reel. From the lightest bait to heavy lures, the M.C.Cast Control System is simple to use, even if you have never before cast a conventional style reel. Simply place your thumb on the spool to cast, swing, remove your thumb from the spool and let it fly! You will only need to thumb the spool when the lure hits the water.

5 of 5 Avet MXJ March 4, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San francisco, CA United States  
This reel is amazing! Takes about 300yards of 50lbs power pro and about a 30yard top shot of 30lb. Great jigging reel to run as a 20lb-30lbs setup. Very similar to the sx, taller but less wide. Perfecr size of Bay Area fishing!

5 of 5 Avet Surprise January 16, 2014
Reviewer: James from PCB, FL United States  
I was actually a bit apprehensive to buy an Avert reel as I am usually a SOM, Accurate, Shimano Ocea and even a Saltiga and Makaira SEA type guy. But I heard the prices were going up and I decide to buy one to play around with and to use a loaner. After I received the reel, I spooled it up with 65lb Braid for light jigging and I was surprised at how much I liked the reel. My Stellas, to my conventionals like my SOM and Accurates stayed int he rack while I just had fun with this small MXJ. It is one bad a$$ little reel and at a really good price point. No wonder there are so many Avet fans out there. Great machining and upon opening up the reel, they did a good job packing the reel with the proper amount of grease and had good components n there. A little handle slop but really don't notice it when you come tight to a fish. great little reel and amazing at the pricing point.
