I have a few avet LX's that i use for sailfishing in south florida, and i was curious if i can add the glide plate that comes on the raptor models to just regular LX 6.0. I love my reels but the lever moves so easily and sometimes they get unexpectedly hit into free spool so i would like the lever to lock into place better with the guide plate.

Avet used to sell kits for this for around $50.00. Several years ago I added one to my MXL and really like the way the drag lever works, just like the Raptors. I haven't seen it on their web page in a while. Suggest to email or call Avet to see if they have any left over stock.

Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
The kits were only for two speed reels so it wouldn't fit on your LX 6.0.
