There no waiting loaded up with fathom atm. But always like avets
Way to Go!.....just put my Gen 2 Fathoms to test on schoolies recently and did not even use half of the 30lb max drag...I’m waiting for a Great Deal on AVET JX Raptor Patriot though as my next purchase...

Even if avet came out with a Star drag I'm not so sure it whould match the tern with the TwinStarDrag system. Stay away from term 300 and 400 sizes I hear there is some problems going around. Unless accurate already fixed it. My Tern 500 is a beast though! No problems while fishing.

No spool, No handle, No foot, No open top and No star. Not sure that reel will even work. :-)

No matter what, it will be hell for stout!

Just posted on the SD LR forum. Avet apparently plans to have the MX sized star drag reels available for sale at the Fred Hall show.

Is Avet going to be selling them?? Usually have to go through a dealer... If so, who’s gonna have them? Ima needs a few of em..

Sorry I don't have details.

RickO was the one who posted the info on the thread I linked to. Might want to PM him or respond on that thread. He did say that they would have some for sale but not sure who the vendor would be if not Avet.

Quote from finadict,

"Right now, the entire factory floor is doubling down on getting the star drags ready for FH. First model off the line is the MXL Star, and will immediately be followed by the MXJ Star. Then we will re tool for the SX and SXJ."

I heard a rumor that Avet was going to offer a level wind version of their star drag MXL. Any truth to this?

Can’t wait to try these out! (If I’m lucky enough to score one/a few lol) I’m on the Avet 7 day in June on the Intrepid. Should be able to put these to the test on some big ol yellowtail. STOKED!!!

Been talk about that for years but no traction yet. Maybe if the new stardrags are successful.

**I** don't want or need a level wind -- but lots of people fishing for salmon want one.
