    The lack of "free" between the case screws and no hash mark above the case screws confirms its not a lever drag.

    Next question is when will it be available and how much will it cost?

    I'll take one in all black please. :lux:

    Screenshot_2018-07-10-20-10-25-1.png I just saw it on Facebook on the avet reels page. I've been all over Facebook today trying to see if anyone took a pic of the new accurate but no luck.

    They listened to us. There was a thread asking what new reel we would want and alot said star drag and they actually did it. Im stoked if i didn't just buy a Trinidad this would be my first pick. If they put MC on it i might just buy one

    Yeah, I'm definitely waiting on accurate. Kudos to avet for their new product! Im happy to see all the companies listening, keeping us happy, and keeping us fishing. I have one avet. An avet dorado sx raptor. If it wasn't because of the color scheme and because I love mahi, I would've sold it already! It just sits pretty and clean in a box. My accurates don't, they catch fish!

    Hell yes! A couple new American made star drags to choose from. That Avet is badass! I’m excited and can’t wait to hear what sizes and price point these reels come in at.

    You sure the Avet pic is real? Is it from their official source and not an imposter? Why is Avet spelled backwards and upside down.?

    I’m definitely not sure. This thread is the first evidence I’ve seen of either manufacturer offering a star drag. I do hope it’s true.

    I hope it’s real as well but I hope they proof read the released model..the backwards upside down Avet was the first thing I noticed. Pretty dumb

    It's from the avet official Instagram. It's just a computer graphic not an actual reel. I'm sure it's a legit response to accurates offering. As well as consumer demand.

    Accurate is gonna show us an actual reel tomorrow. Not a picture.

    Based upon previous experience the Avet will be less refined and at a lower price point almost without question. The accurate will be at a higher price point and highly refined. That being said we wont know forsure until they both make it to the consumer level.

    First thing I noticed too. Avet is certainly not known for their branding or marketing, that’s for sure.

    Saw an IG video of the accurate star drag, It looks awesome but I hope they don’t all come with the ball handle.
