The SX5.1:1 has been updated for 2004, I'm looking to pick one up soon. I'll be using it for striped bass and bluefish up here in MA. It will be mounted on a 6'6" Fenwick HMX rod.

Mike,

I have an Avet SX spooled with 80lb test braid. Fished striped bass this past fall, trolling a Stretch 25 and it handled multiple fish up to 31" with no problems. Very smooth to cast and decent drag. Seems very well made, and I like the small size and high capacity. Only fished it one season, but so far very happy.

Good luck,
Ben

I just ordered an SX (2004) also for fishing blues and strippers in the Chesapeake bay. If it works I may add 2-3 more. The price is certainly right. I watched an episode of saltwater sportman this week which was filmed in Trinidad. They were landing Tarpon up to 70lbs with Avet SX reels spooled with 15lb mono and 6'6" Ugly sticks. It was pretty impressive.

Just ordered one, actally ordered it without seeing it first. I got a chance to play with one at the RISAA show yesterday. A very nice little reel can't wait to start beating it up.
