Here it goes .I plan on getting a Avet LX 2 speed .I would love for all to give me input on this.I do like the way the gears read 6:1 Hi and 3:1 Lo .The drag seems a little weak at 15# freespool and 20# in full .
The other one would be a AvetEX gears 4:1 HI and 2:1 lo.The drag is 20# at freespool and 30 at full
The reeling going to be in a Narrow style.
The rod will be order from the Great OTI of course

PS I'm a Big Boy and can all the pro's and con's of this reel

I just got off the phone with Avet and the new reel should be out in mid January
Spec's are:
5:4-1 hi and 2:4-1 lo
LINE- 350 of 40# mono
Drag at free spool 24#-26# and in full drag 32#-36#

I was told they are still playing with the Drag setting But so far they think this might be the sweet spot
The new Avet will be a ounce heavier

OK My trip was pretty good.There was a total of 3 YFT hook about 50#-70# was the biggest.I did hook up with one however the popper I was using I did not change the hooks and that was a hard lesson to learn. there was a ton of black fins caught(those are little fighters).The next day we went to a rig that held a butt lot of Grouper and Red snapper caught(all snapper were released)The grouper I did get in the boat went about 60-65 .Grouper are one hard A-- pulling fish That's why I want to get that Avet with the higher lo gear
