Avet SX two speed and single speed

I own a two speed and single speed avets. For a few years they were my reel of choice. Tough, smooth, and worked like a champ. The only drawback is that they do not handle any length of exposure to corrosive saltwater environments. I know folks who carry extra bearings because it happens so often. If you are take care of these reels (i.e fresh water rinse or bath IMMEDIATELY after every use) they will work flawlessly and last forever. I however, abuse my gear and found these reels take a little too much TLC for my style of fishing. But make no mistake, these reels will do their job flawlessly when taken care of.
