    yep you read it right, i shipped (22) reels in a single box to Avet for service, called this morning to see if they were ready and they said they did not have them...long story short the owner of the company (Eliza) was the person who signed for them on 4-17. I have been on the phone several times with them today (cannot believe they hire a customer service person who does not speak and understand clear english, i am so TIRED of repeating stuff to that lady), sounds like they are going to replace them but they were not sure of stock...will let everyone know what happens and the full story.

    Wait...............you gotta be joking.

    A couple of reels, sure...............but how does one lose 22?

    That had to have been a freakin huge box.

    They called and are shipping me 22 new ones today so all is well. They think they signed for 3 boxes but accidentially left mine sitting outside and someone stole it. It was a Ryobi bench grinder box (I think it was a grinder) and the reels were layed in it protected with bubble wrap, they were not in their original boxes

    No they are making it right, certainly cannot complain there ( saved me 1k on service), it was just very frustrating having to tell the same person , the same information over and over again multiple times. Whe she asked me if I have receipts for them I almost lost it thats for sure...lol...

    Don't stress. This is more a story of "shit happens and company makes good" than anything. I'm sure Avet feels plenty bad about it and will be tightening up things on their end.

    Glad to hear they're working everything out with you. I've had nothing but good experience with them so far and have more faith it will continue in the future.

    They were all stripped for line, glad they stood up and made it right I will certainly continue to buy and support their product. if you see someone selling (12) MXl single speed, purple, black and silver...along with (10) LX single speed, grey, blue and some with silver bodies and silver ends please let someone know! I was really not that worried I knew it would get fixed, time is what I was worrried about and obviously the language barrier was driving me absolutely crazy.

    When I first saw your thread about the lost Avets I was going to make a jerk response that "thank god it wasn't 23 reels".......but I realized how much it must of sucked.

    Reading your thread further where you mention Avet is sending you all new reels for the mix up is awesome! I have only 2 Avets, I bought them because I had tried one on a charter with some friends and like the reel, an LX. I also bought them because they are american made........now I have one more reason to buy another one.

    Glad it is working out for you!
