Fishing Equipment Review: Avet’s Newest Raptor Reel Series

Western Outdoor NewsPublished: Feb 24, 2012

All Raptors are two-speed

New Avet Raptors designed to withstand even the toughest game fish

With the introduction of Avet’s newest Raptor reel series, it should come as little surprise the company has infused these reels with all of the signature features anglers have come to expect from Avet.

The Raptor has a ratcheting lever drag control system with adjustable pre-set and strike/stop button to prevent accidental advancement to full drag. The powerful, patented Dual Direct Drive full surface caliper brake system features their proprietary oversized carbon fiber Avedrag dry drag system; which makes these reels capable of exceptionally high drag pressure while maintaining full free-spool capability.

All Raptors are two-speed, and feature Avet’s quick shift mechanism, which allows anglers to shift between gears without ever having to move their hand from the handle. These reels are also designed to maximize the potential of modern superbraid lines and lighter, high-performance composite rods for the ultimate compact, castable big-game reel.
