  • Avet Price Promise

    Designed for use with hollow-core superbraid lines available today, it's now possible to target large game species with a reel half of the size and weight compared to a traditional reel designed for similar monofilament line and drag capacities. Importantly, the HXW Raptor has a very impressive drag and serious cranking power to back it up!

    The Avet Raptor Series comes standard with Avet's innovative 2-speed gears and a ratcheting drag lever with a positive stop strike button to prevent accidental advancement past strike. Featuring Avet's patented DUAL DIRECT DRIVE Full Surface Caliper Brake System, Raptor models put out nearly twice the drag pressure of the original Avets! There's a Raptor model that will stop any fish in the ocean, yet small and light enough to cast. If you find a fish too big for a Raptor, you probably wouldn't want it near your boat! The Raptor Series reels are the same sizes as the original Avet reels, with enhanced line capacities, and each are engineered and built to fish several line classes heavier than the original Avet Reels.
