Pulled the trigger on an Avet SX 2-speed today. They come in gunmetal now, and Charkbait was including free spectra, mono topshot, and a free case and shipping!
I ordered it filled with 50lb Blackwater Spectra topped with 25lb Izorline Clear. I have a feeling I'm going to put the hurt to a lot of Fluke with it this summer, and should be a great match to the GUSA 79 MAG I bought from Ragman. The Blackwater is also a 16 strand spectra, so it's nice and soft and should be fantastic to cast with considering the Avet's freespool capabilities.
changed to JB and 2 - speed
The best part is that it was 289.95 SHIPPED!!
this deal applies to ALL AVET MODELS (pricing varies)
(silver, gold, black, purple, blue, gunmetal, red)
Charkbait always has kick ass deals. I was going to pick up a MXL 2 speed or the SX 2 speed in Gunmetal last week from Charkbait with the same promo, but now I'm glad I didn't as I have all this other spinning jigging stuff to buy
I know!! I was totally surprised to see that offered as an option, the only thing i am not sure about it is whether it's hollow or solid. I' m going to call to find out, because I'm not sure if i want a hollow braid on a reel this small, but if the diameter is thin enough, I may stay with it.
the regs may change this year to a 7 fish 21" bag or a 2 fish 19" I'm not totally positive on the numbers but it will be a 2 or 7 fish bag but not totally sure on the size.
I fluke out of Nwport RI and can't wait for the SX. It should be a killer, spooled with 50lb braid and a 25lb topper. Probably swap to put the mono on the bottom of the spool for fluke and switch it back for stripers and tuna.
I found out the Blackwater is hollow, which I don't want for casting, so I need to decide between JB and Izorline. I know the JB comes in 16 strand, but not sure on the Izor. Ideas? Calling Charkbait tomorrow, but wanted to hear from y'all first.
I'm really tempted to go for the 2 - speed, being a tackle ho, now an AVET ho, this is my second in less than a month.
