Any of you guys use Avet reels for jigging or casting. If so which reel would you recommend,(hoo-x)? How is the casting performance.?

Thanks

SX = 50-80# BFT
MX = 50-100#
JX/LX = 80-120#
HX = 100-150#
SX Raptor = 80-120#
HX Raptor = 100-250#

The reels cast very well as long as you are used to casting fast spinning conventionals. The MC cast control versions help a lot (from what I hear). I will give more feedback on the HX Raptor hopefully in the beginning of June.

I think the JX raptor could be a sweet reel when it finally comes out....

What line weight do you want to cast? What reel size? The AVET 50 will Cast big bait pretty well. (as is common on Long Range Tuna boats) More of a toss really. Casting a plug? Casting what? A JX will toss an iron (Tady etc) very well with 30 or 40 lb mono on a Jig Stick. I have a HX on a Seeker 670 XH (50-100 lb 7 foot rod) It cast sWahoo Bombs and such very well.

I give an SX on a 80lbs BFT about 10-15 seconds. On the other hand I did see quite a few 60-80 lbs BFT caught on an MXL and it wasnt to pretty either. I dont think its recommended to significantly underwiegh your tackle when BFT tuna fishing, exhausted fish tend to have a very high mortality rate.

The SX and the MX have the same drags :)
