new jigging setup

I just ordered an Avet HX5/2 and a hopper 500FS jigging rod. Anyone have this combo? Any reviews? I've got two Avet JX's on hopper 270's and I love them, but needed a bit more backbone.

Also got me a jig bag and starting on my jig collection.

I have a JX on a 500 Hopper and am pleased with it. Largest so far is 50 - 60 lb yellowfin and 61 lb warsaw. The warsaw kept it bowed up pretty good, but never put it to any limit. I like it.

I have an avet hxj 5-2. I wish the high speed was around 6. I am not real happy with the anti reverse. it has enough slack in it that it makes a loud bang on every stroke. it is usable , but you have to get the timing just right so it doesn't bang.

Avet are known for that , simply they're not jigging reels. Don't have the gearing & the anti-reverse to dealt with the jigging torture .
you should have gotten a JM , Alu gorilla , Torsa something on this range.

how long have you been using that Avet ? Be happy that still hold up, but it might be not for long

Interesting feedback. I've had two avets and have been really happy with them, which is why i'm buying a 3rd. I'm definitely not a subject matter expert on jigging reels though.

I am not saying that those Avets dont work , what I said is that they are not designed as jigging reels.
The gears & anti reverse paw wont hold the constant beating of the jigging motion. Sure they'll do the job for a while , but if you jig on a regular basis the first failure will be the anti reverse.
Glad you guys are happy with them
