RE: Avet 30/2 or 4/02
I would definitely keep the 30/2. I own a 40/2, love the reel and have caught a four tuna on it, but the auto-clicker-disengage can be almost dangerous if you bump the handle while chunking or livebaiting. And it would be really nice to have a button to push before going into full - past strike, for newbie friends on the boat. I believe Avet fixed both these problems on the 30/2 plus added more drag. My 40/2 will get 35 pounds at full, perfect for 80lb, but I have to baby-sit it all day so my friends don't screw anything up.
