38# BFT on the SX
63# BFT & 47# halibut MXJ
76# BFT MXJ Raptor
Loose screw on the dog cover plate caused the plate to break when I was winding down on the fish and it decided it wanted to run again. Turned out it was user error on my friend when he limp wristed screwing everything back together. I decided that it wasn't worth any more future problems that he might have caused and basically gave it away to another friend that loves his MX reels with the knowledge that he would have to go through it all before using
Thanks. That was my next guess :->.
90# Bluefin on Mx, 45 minutes. After that I can't imagine what a 200# tuna would be like!
lol I caught an 80b bluefin on a Torium 20 with 50 braid and 30 topshot. took a shit too, lol.
80 lb bft on my mxl, 30 lb test, calstar 700ml rod. Fought for about 45 min. Reel still works great!
44 lbs YFT 9/15. Oceanside 4 miles out or so.
Caught a 40lb Dorado on SX with 20lb Trilene, Loreto BCS
65lb BFT on a MXL,
Here we go. This was my first trip out with my mxl. Had the drag buttoned down about as far as I could within factory specs. Caught atleast 20 AJ's this size, one false albacore and had a big wahoo take about 200 yards out within a minute or less before he broke me off of the wreck. Sure was a heck of a day. Needless to say I have had 5 avet reels and am planning to get a good many more. Heck of a piece of art and very easy to disassemble/ maintain.
28# yellowtail on MXL with 30 LB. P-Line mono. off of San Clemente Island. 6/26/2015 on live squid.
100lb Opah. Caught on Avet MXL, 50lb PP, 30lb Premier, Point Wilson dart, at the 14
Nice fish guys.
MXJ with 30lb PP, I caught a 180lb Sturgeon

65lb Amberjack - Avet SX 5.3 MC
50lb Cobia - Avet SX 5.3 MC
6ft 7in Sandbar Shark - Avet SX 5.3 MC
Reel is still works great, clicker is going out, and the AJ managed get the frame screws to back out, but I still bring it every trip and tear it up with it.
125lb marlin on mxl and 25lb ande
It's funny how I started this thread to show a buddy of mine that you don't need an insanely powered reel to catch big fish even if it's deep sea fishing but some of these are just eye popping
ARB = Anti-Reverse Bearing
I know what ARB is my man... And i also know that they are nonexistent in these reels lol
My bad, I read ur message as "whats ARB?" rather than "What ARB?"
Wow, some awesome catches here everyone.
SX 5.3 MC, 35lb Bluefin with 50# braid and 40lb flouro leader for me using a cal star 800L deck hand rod. Wasn't even close to limiting this little reel.
