Avet LX 6 with Sailfish Drag Fishing Reel

Outfitted with our BMC drag modification, the LX 6.0 is hard to beat when it comes to catching sailfish, and winning tournaments. The fast retrieve allows the angler to pick up slack line quickly, and tighten up when fishing the mandatory non-offset tournament legal circle hooks. This reel has a more gradual drag curve, allowing the angler to set their strike drags at 5 LBS, and increasing to 10 LBS when the lever is moved to the FULL position. The fast retrieve allows for faster landing of the fish, decreasing fish release time, and increasing fishing time, which exponentially increases your chances of tournament placement.  When fished with 20 LB test line, this reel has a line capacity of 500 yds, 30 LB test monofilament, yields a line capacity of 350 yds.




Guide for choosing Avet Reel Models SX through HX including 2 Speed Reels

This guide offers important specifications that highlight different features that are important for reel selection. The line capacities on this page are based on approximate Sufix brand monofilament, and Jerry Brown Spectra braided fishing line diameters.

Avet LX 6 with Sailfish Drag Fishing Reel

The Avet LX 6.0 has gained a huge popularity amongst sailfish tournament anglers due to it's impressive performance and outstanding tournament results. This reel provides for a smoother drag and a more gradual drag curve, allowing anglers to fish a lighter drag when fishing live baits off the kites, and on the flat lines. Ideal drag settings and fast retrieve makes this the best sailfish tournament reel you have ever used. 

I personally use the Avet LX 6 with Sailfish Drag Fishing Reel exclusively when fishing sailfish tournaments here in South Florida. 7 FT live bait rods are the perfect rods to combo with this reel. The Avet LX 6 with Sailfish Drag Fishing Reel will fit in both plastic, and aluminum 22 and 24 mm diameter reel seats. I recommend my Sceptre 7 FT Sailfish Tournament Series with E-glass blank, or our new Sceptre Carbon graphite composite 7 FT Sailfish rods. For those anglers who prefer AFTCO Light Roller guides, our KFR rods are an excellent choice.
