What do you guys think of the older Avet Pro EX 4/02 reels? I recently picked up a used one, looks almost brand new. Got killer deal $100! I was told the factory drag is usually around 18/25lb. But, I sent mine to Alan Tani for service and to have him HotRod the drags, we're hoping for upper 20s to mid 30lbs on the drag.
If I get these numbers out of the rebuild, would his reel work for 80lb bait or 100lb dropper loop?
Kenji - I have that exact same reel that I bought many years ago. I recently sent it back to Avet and they beefed it up and now it's getting 35lbs.
