  1. Time has come to say good by to some of my prized boat reels. I am downsizing and decided to sell three of them. I like these all equally and I'm planning to sell only the first three that get claimed. All are 8/10 cosmetically, 10/10 functionally. I would actually give them an additional point for cosmetics, but that's all relative. I can take more close-up pictures upon request. I only took two reels at a time on boat trips and I didn't get to rotate them around too many times. The Saltiga saw more action than others. Not sure why, but that reel just feels extra nice. Avets are both G2's and they are built like tanks. Definitely not as smooth as the other three reels, but perfect for togging in the winter or going for sea bass in wrecks (maybe overkill). Daiwa and Shimano are all very smooooooooth, especially compared to the Avets, but they also cost more. I worked hard for these babies... One part of me says just keep them all, but a small part of me (and the wife) says let some go. Prices include shipping to CONUS. I am accepting Paypal.

  2. 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.
