i don't seem to find any info on this generation 2 avet reel hx wide

perhaps its release date is on the horizon - when
maybe 2019
or it is not in development - why

i would buy a used HXW Raptor or HXW 2speed (to complement my HX Raptor) - if the price is competitive with show specials, 10%, free spectra, tax - but the g2 could sway me to full retail...

No HX series in the G2 line. G2 line was based in part on the HX design.

You can read this thread to the end if you want to read details from Scott ...
holy moley 9 pages deep, last updated 2016 ... not sure how my search missed that mega thread

reads like the HX already has the G2 engineering - except the increased drag in nonRaptor version

The HXW Raptor is well worth the $85 over the standard HXW. For a reel that will last a lifetime, with proper maintenance, for the extra drag and less handle binding it is a no brainer for me. I have the 3-speed, I've caught some decent tuna on it without an issue and saw several cow Tuna landed on it.
