I wish...as in, I wish I had a boat.
I found an older model avet LX and wanted to know if it would be worth buying. I heard they can have anti-reverse issues and bad bearings; so my concern is, can the anti-reverse mechanism be upgraded or would I be stuck with whatever comes in the reel?

It is the reel with a ledge on the sideplate, not the rounded sideplate, and has the shark emblem on it.

Thanks for any input.
