    Thinking of upgrading my Penn 112's with Avet SX 5.3 speed Lever Drag reels. Not a huge upgrade but a more compact reel for tossing chovies to Mr Tuna. What is the conciseness?

    Love the Avet. In the last year I have picked up 5 you will not be disappointed.

    What are you waiting for. Do It!

    You fished MXJ's on my boat. They are a little bigger. We double them as shallow halibut and lingcod jigging reels. That extra line capacity is nice!

    Go with the MXJs I use mine for everything, salmon, halibut, tuna, they aren't much bigger than an SX but are much more versatile in my opinion

    If my golf buddies knew what I spend on gear the be giving the biggest ration of shit ever.......How come you don't get rid of those old Pings and get some new clubs? At least re-grip them!!!

    Anybody want some year old Penn 112's?

    The MXJ is a little narrower and a little bigger around than the SX . It nets out with more capacity than the SX. I like my MXJ more than my SX.

    Another vote for MXJ. It is what we use for all our live bait sticks.
