Just purchased a new to me (used) jx 2 speed, what should I replace in the reel, i own other avets that I have purchased brand new so I have not had to go through them. I notice horrible free spool on this reel and an odd sound when in strike and testing the drag. Sounds like a bearing or washer? Any suggestions Thank You in advance.

Most likely a bearing, I always replace mine or my friends if they buy it off someone

But also take it apart and check to make sure parts are assembled properly while replacing bearing.

    It's more than bearings. I'll bet you have salt and corrosion build up on the spool and drag washer. I say this because of the odd sound when in strike. But I'm sure you need bearings too. These are great and reliable reels but they do need at least annually maintenance and a daily rinse.

    Just got mine back from Avet. Had an anti-reverse issue. $39.00 service replaced all the bearings, cleaned and lubed, & fixed the anti-reverse problem.
    May be worth sending it to them for the $39.00 service for all new bearings. If anything else is wrong they will fix as well.
    Just a thought.

    Bearings. Send it to Avet for a service. My JX had the same issue. Just gets some build up and grit inside the reel over time. A service will make it like new. Best $40 you'll ever spend!

    If you have to ship it to them, do they charge to ship it back to you? I'm just trying to figure out the total cost to have the reel serviced.

    I sent my MK 30SEa to Okuma, under warranty, and had to pay for shipping BOTH ways. The reel was defective. It did not need regular service.

    Send them an email to ask about shipping, but I am almost certain they cover return shipping -- unless you live away from the 48 contiguous states.

    Just one of many reasons if you fish often, NOT to own Avets. The last of mine will be on the S.D. Anglers swapmeet table in October. Their like a bad girlfriend, you have to give them a lot of attenention OR ELSE.
