Avet MXL 5.8 Reels
The Avet MXL reels are saltwater lever drag reels designed for big game species applications. The 5.8 MXL reels, from Avet, 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 MXL 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 MXL Reels is very smooth due in large part to the use of eight stainless steel ball bearing and precision machine stainless steel gears.
The MXL 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 MXL 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 MXL 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 MXL 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.
