    Sceptre Avet LX 6 Rod Reel Combo

    Sceptre Kingfish Tournament Series 7 FT Live Bait Rod & Avet LX 6.0 Kingfish Reel with BMC Drag

    The perfect rod and reel combo for drift fishing live baits off the kites, as well as slow trolling with live baits on the surface or on the downriggers. This rod and reel combo is a favorite with both Sailfish and Kingfish King Mackerel tournament anglers.

    Our BMC Drag update allows for a more gradual drag curve. This reel may be set at lighter STRIKE drag settings, which will not be excessive when the lever is moved to the FULL drag position. Perfect for catching Kingfish & Sailfish on 20 LB Test fishing lines.
    Sceptre Stealth Tournament Series 7 FT Rod & Avet LX 6.0 Combo

    The Sceptre Stealth 7 FT Tournament Series Rods are the perfect rods for those anglers who fish for King Mackerel, Sailfish, as well as Stripers. Our rod features a fast action tip with lots of backbone. Ideal for fishing live baits off the kites, slow trolling, as well as off the downriggers. This rod is wrapped 100% in BLACK with our custom Sceptre Rods logo.


    Aluminum 22 mm Diameter Reel Seats

    All our Sceptre Stealth 7 FT Conventional Rods feature a total of 10 guides including rod tip, a 22 mm diameter aluminum reel seat with washer. The 22 mm reel seat is the perfect size for Avet models MX, LX, as well as the new HX Series. In addition, the Shimano TLDs, SpeedMasters, as well as Trinidads, Penn 545's, and Calcuttas will fit just fine. The reel seat will also fit the new Alutecnos Veloce, Penn Torques, as well as the Penn Senators. Basically any reel that falls into the same size as the reels mentioned above will fit on our 22 mm aluminum reel seat.

    When I designed Sceptre Fishing Rods I took into account the many design flaws that I found to underperform when fishing offshore. One of these flaws are reel seats that tighten from the butt up towards the rod tip. This type of reel seat alignment is not only impractical due to the reel coming loose and getting lost overboard, but such alignment can also cause injury if the reel flys off the reel seat. Personally I found that the composite reel seats eventually loose their threads, as well as deform when exposed to the elements. Our machined reel seats will not deform or come loose. Each reel seat features a lock washer to further assure the stability of the reel on the reel seat.

    Fuji Silicone Carbide Rod Tip:

     The Fuji SIC Rod Tip guides were designed to take the punishment of the new Spectra braided fishing lines. I chose to use the Fuji SIC tip to assure the utmost performance as well as to prevent rod tip
    guide tangles, and failure commonly seen in other rod tips.

    Turbo Guides:

     Turbo guides feature ceramic inserts surrounded by a sturdy heavy aluminum frame. These inserts will not fall off when the rod is accidentally bumped during storage, or from heavy offshore use. The sturdiness of the turbo guide frame protects the integrity of the ceramic inserts.  

    Slick Butt:

    We use the hard plastic slick butts with epoxied EVA underneath to provide a tight fit of the slick butt to the through butt rod construction. This feature prevents the reel seat and butt from dis-alignment over time. Our rods will always maintain the reel's alignment with the guides.

    Nylon Gimbal:

    We use a hard plastic nylon gimbal on all our rods. While aluminum makes for an excellent gimbal, it will also scratch gelcoat. I have found that replacing a nylon gimbal is far less expensive than gelcoat repairs. Our gimbal will not scratch your gunwale or your deck.

    Lure / Hook Keeper:

    All our Sceptre Rods feature a lure / hook keeper built into the rod. The keeper allows you to attach your hook or lure to the rod instead of one of the guides. This also avoids the need of having to wrap the leader around the reel. The lure / hook keeper allows for faster deployment of your bait or lure.

    Rod Blank:

    All our Sceptre Rods are build on indestructible blanks. Short of running the rod over with a lawn mower, these blanks will take a bend from big fish! I have caught everything from Pacific Sails, Yellow Fin Tuna, to Kingfish, and the blanks have all performed flawlessly. The fast tip allows for a super enjoyable fight, while the backbone will facilitate landing the fish.

    Combo'ed out with an Avet LX 6.0 with BMC Drag, this rod and reel combo is ideal for fishing live baits off the kites, downriggers, as well as flat lines or when slow trolling. The lightning fast retrieve rate of the Avet LX 6.0 allows the quick retrieval of slack line when a sailfish or kingfish takes a live bait off your kite. The increased drag curve provided by the BMC drag update, protects you from pulling hooks due to excessive drag pressure when the lever is moved to the STRIKE, or FULL position.

    Tight Lines,
