Default Fs: Avet pro exw 50/2---SOLD SOLD

Have for sale an AVET 50 wide 2-Speed reel. It is in excellent condition, both mechanically and cosmetically. It has been recently serviced by AVET and has not been fished since the service. During this service all of the bearings were replaced. I would rate the reel a 10 mechanically and maybe 8.5 cosmetically (see pictures!) as it has some small dings and scratches incurred during normal use. It comes completely spooled with 200 pound spectra and is ready for your top shot to be ready to fish. Price is $460.00 which includes insured U S shipping. PayPal gift or add 3%.

2/17/17 Had a THTer ask if I would sell the reel without the line at a reduced price. Removed the line and found some forgotten minor corrosion on the spool arbor, the corrosion has been removed and the location repaired. Attached are new pictures showing the repaired spots on the spool. Price with no line is $400.00 PayPal Gift which includes Insured Priority Shipping.

2/31/17 Price drop to $375.00 with no line including insured shipping.

Spectra is hollow core, Izorline. Has a couple of splices in it where I've replaced some bad spots. I checked it after each trip to be sure it was still good to go.

Hi 2_Gator, Don't know the age, bought from a fellow THTer a while back and find it a little too large for what I need. Since then its been totally refurbished.

In an earlier post I offered to trade this one for a 50 size, San Diego Special, found and bought one of those just a few days ago so need to sell this one.

Serial Number: EXW5005-12957. Couldn't find an actual break down on how that dates the reel, but if I was guessing it was manufactured in 2005, maybe December? If you find a serial number break down would appreciate a follow up on how it's constructed.

Reel functions perfectly now. Don't know how a brand new one could work better.

I'm located in San Pedro, CA.

I am putting together my first 50 setup and debating whether to buy a new or used reel, so I appreciate the info. I am leaning towards new, but if I change my mind I will let you know.

Reel is in better shape than it looked in the pictures and got to Florida from California in two days. Thanks for the smooth transaction. Anyone dealing with josa1 in the future will not be disappointed.
