Avet PRO-EX 80 Wide 3 Speed Reel
Not since the early days of Fin-Nor has there been a 3-speed big game reel made available to anglers. Hands down, Avet's new revolutionary EX-80 3-speed reel sets the new standard for big game offshore fishing performance.
The advantages of a 3-speed reel speak for themselves. The major difference is a high speed retrieve suitable for fighting topwater fish that fight on the surface such as Marlin. Avet's high-speed ratio pulls an incredible 46 inches per crank, which comes in handy for getting rid of slack, and coming tight on the fish. The 2nd speed is a powerful 2.0:1 ratio that pulls 29 inches per crank, allowing the angler easier cranking at a moderate rate of retrieval, and lastly, the mighty 1:1 ratio that pulls 14 inches of line per crank, allowing for easy cranking, less angler fatigue, at a slow, but yet powerful retrieval rate. This reel features ALL the versatility you need to catch any fish that swims!
The 3-speed Avet 80 is the ideal reel for catching Marlin, Tuna, and Swordfish. A grander of any size is no match for Avet's new EX-80 3-speed reel. This reel features a top crossbar for added strength & durability.
