Does anyone know if the clicker has been redesigned for the 130?
Thanks
Glad to see my thread resurrected on the avet trx130 now that they finally have it!

Never had any issues on my trx 80 wides with the clickers or anything after 2 seasons so far.

Ill let you know on the avet trx130, my tackle guy is gonna order one up soon. Can't wait, beast of a reel!

Default Some dealers already have them.

It is already out . It has 200lbs at max drag.. Beast of a reel. But I see no need in having that much drag. 200lbs of drag would would be alot of stress for any gunnel. Nobody can stand up or chair 200 lbs of drag. Only use I see is for line capacity.

Its kind of like horsepower in a motor, the higher the top end, the less it has to work at lower and mid range. To handle the stress and heat generation at 200 pounds means it will more easily handle 50-80

I would hate to see what you need a 130 trx for.....maybe shark fishing from shore would be a huge benefit with the line capacity
