Default Avet for Jigging?

Are the Avet SX 5.o:1 any good for jigging? What about trolling also? I want to get into jigging for mutton, aj's, etc. But I dont have a good reel for it. Also, what about the Shimano Tyrnos for the same application?

Thanks

Avet sx's are great little reels. Not that good for jigging due to the play in the antireverse although I know a bunch of people who jig with them. If you're going to use the reel strickly for jigging, choose one with instant antireverse. Too small for trolling IMO.

The SX has will have some backwards play as you jig but it is a great reeel. For trolling, take a look at the bigger avets, HXs or the raptors.

Defo look into the ATLAS Reels. A new company with an awsome product. I love mine. Terminator tackle has them.

the lack of infinite anti-reverse is defintely a deal killer. avet is way overrated and there are much better options out there IMO. personally I don't like lever drags for jigging either.

I use the avet JX as well and it has done great. All bottom species and AJ's up to 50 lb range so far.
