dk2429 One of the only reel companies left made in USA! I would have them if I did that kind of fishing.. Sadly, low profile baitcasters made in USA aren't a thing..

sea sick I've used Avets and Accurate reels for the past 15 years.
My choice is accurate. Very smooth reel, cast well, no clicking on the jigging. Smooth drag.

buckmaster133 I guess the word I was looking for is slop on speed jigging, when you speed jig with a Avet the ant reverse backs up and inch or so and that is what causes the click, but like lite liner said not great for speed jigging, and this is not just mine they all have a little give in the anti reverse, take the reel apart and you can see it

lite-liner I have owned/fished just about every US-built reel out there. Avet does not design their reels to be jigging-specific. I love my HX-2 for chunking & bottom, but previously Avets had too much "slop" to effectively speed-jig. if you are looking for a vert. jigging-specific reel, they are out there.
specifically the Shimano Ocea Jigger & Trinidad models, available in 1500-5000 sizes, is probably the best reel out there for this niche-style of fishing.
With the advent of "slow-pitch" vertical jigging, other makes have come into the fold as well. Maxel, Jigging Master (same reel, different brands) are also very strong pieces.
if you like lever-drag really can't go wrong with an Accurate Bx-400x, been jigging with mine for 10 years with only 1 bearing failure in dozens of trips

photofishin I have two Avets for jigging and love them both. One is the HXJ I use for larger fish like tuna and AJ's and an SX 6/4 MC Raptor that I use for snapper. Both are new within the last year and don't have the clicking noise suggested above. I have a Diawa BG6500 spinning reel on a Daiwa Saltist rod (rated for 60-8lb braid) that I use for jigging too.

I have several Avet’s, but I really don’t like them for jigging, the anti reverse makes a clicking noise, every time you pull up on the rod it clicks, just a personal thing maybe, but they are great! I use them for snapper,

[email protected] I personally don't like a star drag for speed jigging so I would not use a torium. Look at Talica 20 or 25 or an Accurate fury 500 both will work well for vertical fishing,pitching, and chunking both have very loud clickers unlike the Avet

lulurage Take a look at Seigler reels. Small but boy do they pack a punch.
