    Not trying to hijack the thread but how is everyone spooling them. Last year I wasn't happy with power pro and a top shot ,the power pro ended up digging into the spool and binding up. Broke off a few before retiring that particular setup.

    Might not be the very best option, but it was cheap and we never had issues.

    Randy your going to like the Avets.
    Cheers

    Had to read your title slower. Thought one one the Ns was an I. Whew!

    I don't know what model which Avets are, but getting small one. So much nicer with a crazy light rod and reel.

    Used 112s in nice condition are not common. I would not be in a rush to rid yourself of them. They are great boat reels. Are they US made?

    When I got 3 avets MXJ a year back I got 1 with the MC control. Made sense 2 live bait and 1 to throw iron. Well so far I have not had a chance to throw iron due to the live bait show. But it worked great when the other 2 were snapped off or fed to the sharks. Grab the one with the hooks and go. As far as a free spool I did not notice the control affecting it at all, but did not really have time for the bait to swim.

    Good luck
