  1. Up For Sale Brand new in box Avet SX 5.3 Lever drag casting reel I received this as a gift but I already have a similar sized reel. Asking $185 shipped via USPS priority mail or $175 pick up Since I am pretty new to the forum, I prefer to meet up around Baltimore, DC metro or NOVA area. Thanks.
  2. Looking to trade my barely used Curado K 201 for a 4000-5000 size spinning reel or small conventional (penn squall/fathom 12 or Avet sxj/sx or similar size). It is the 7:1 speed and left hand retrieve. Will post pics in the morning. Wanted to see if anyone was interested in a trade for something of similar value (retail). Let me know what you got. Located outside Philly. Have a MH Shimano Exage casting rod I can include as well.
  3. Still gearing up for the season, looking for one or two more salmon/halibut reels. No color preference, thanks! aloha, isao
  4. Trying one more time. Looking for an unused Raptor SX Raptor Dorado. I know these are next to impossible to find. Will purchase outright or have reels for trade.
  5. A question, and a speculation, on "twin drags." This comes in response to Kilsong's preference for the IRT Dual Drag reels, but isn't limited to them. I don't own anything with dual drags. If you do and have a comment, make sure you tell us what reel it is that you own. I have assumed, all along, that the real value of a dual-drag or twin-drag design isn't the ridiculously high loads you can place on the reel. The gain is in drag smoothness as line is taken, the diameter of the loaded spool shrinks; since the lever arm (distance from the surface of the loaded spool to the spool axle) shrinks, leverage declines, and the actual drag load increases. However contra-intuitive, you'd have to reduce the drag as the diameter of the loaded spool is reduced in order to maintain the same load on the drag. A related thought or two. First, current braids are skinnier then those of just a few years ago, never mind mono. This reduces spool shrinkage when Moby Whale climbs on, and takes off. So there's less need for twin drags then there might have been. Second, modern reels can, with a single drag setup, exert ridiculous amounts of pressure on a fish, enough to pull me over the side of any boat, if I'm careless. There's a Torque 300 in my basement, lined with a solid braid for jigging tuna. I never used it ... the box says it can exert 29 lbs. of pressure. Having played with it, I believe the blurb. Zcoker has remarked that he catches blacktip sharks on a Stella 8000, with a rated top drag of 60 lb. SIXTY LBs on a surf reel? That's wild. That last anyone would see of me, with that much drag on a surf fish, would be the drag marks of two feet and a belly. And my nose. Do those of you who fish an Accurate reel with two drags, Avet or Maxel with what they call two drags, Okuma Makaira, IRT DD or anything else, feel you're getting something for your extra bucks? I suspect that Accurate, AFAIK the first twin-drag user, shows the best result. They put a drag washer and pressure plate on each side of the spool, on their lever drags. No doubt they fenced off their design with lots of patents, as broadly written as possible. Avet has had - I suspect - to step around that arrangement. Maxel, I think, got in a patent fight with Accurate, and lost. The Makaira gets great love on Alan Tani's site, but that may or may not be because of their drag design. Accurate's TwinSpin spinning reel did not get love from Alan Hawk in its' first iteration, and user reports are few. Ladies, Gentlemen, persons of indeterminate gender, those who are confused, the floor is open. Kilsong, I'm going to start another thread with IRT - specific questions.
  6. Looking for a brand new (I know chances are slim) Avet SX Raptor in the Dorado color. May have a SXJ Raptor Dorado to trade, or will outright purchase if available. I'm in New York, would prefer an in person deal, but let me know what's out there.

  12. So I pre-ordered Avet SXJ G2 5.3 MC Single Speed Reel in black from TD in December of last year (2016). I saw the "Expected Availability" date change at least 4 times, starting with January and now it's showing early May delivery. The vendor has not communicated any information about the delay, so I just finally contacted the vendor to see if they had any more information. Does anyone here have any more info? Maybe a manufacturing issue? Also, I am wondering if anyone has a different Avet G2 5.3 model and how they are liking the reel so far? I bought the SXJ version for wreck fishing and the MC option in case I want to use it on the surf occasionally.
