Here's another one for you all. I've already figured out what I want to purchase for my charter reels, but I'm thinking of treating myself with a really nice reel. There's a whole bunch of talk about all the different Avets out there and what everyone likes for their purposes. Yeah, I really like the looks of the Avets, BUT I don't believe I've heard of anyone suggesting an Okuma Cedros over an Avet.
I have not sat down and actually looked at the specs of both reels and price point vs. price point, and I plan to do that, but for general discussion does anyone have an opinion of one vs. the other. And PLEASE, I'm not looking for a "gee, I've got an Avet and I sure like it" sort of answer. I'm just curious if people have a good reason for picking an Avet over an Okuma Cedros. And I specifically say "Cedros" because I know the Makaira is a great looking reel, but it's also a very expensive reel.
