The Avet HX (Hoo-X) Reels will prove to be one of the most popular reels Avet has ever made. Avet HX/2 Reels feature a 2 speed gearbox for quick line pick up and low-end cranking power. Avet HX Reels are extremely versatile, perfectly suited for vertical jigging, trolling and casting. With 22 lbs. of drag at strike and 28 lbs. at full, this reel is perfectly suited to mono/spectra top shots. Each reel comes with reel clamps and harness lugs (excluding the HXJ, which does not have harness lugs).
HX 4.2 Single Speed is a standard, mid-size reel which allows you to fish heavier line without losing line capacity. Excellent live bait reel and Marlin caster.
HX 5/2 is the Two Speed version of the HX 5/01, giving you the high speed gear for line capacity and the low speed gear for more control of your line retrieval rate for the power to turn big fish.
HXJ 5/2 Two Speed is the narrowest of this series used for jigging and casting. The narrow width of this reel makes it easy to thumb spool allowing for easy castability and line control.
HXW 5/2 Two Speed is the wider version of this series. This reel will allow you to fish heavier line without the use of spectra and wide enough for heavy top shot with enough room for wind-on leader without losing line capacity. Exceptional Marlin caster.
