    Default Seward charter selling Avet reels

    Did anyone notice all the Avet reels for sale on CL? 3 or 4 different models but the guy had about 40 reels. I called and the guy said they were a charter outfit in Seward.

    I wonder if he had bad luck with them, or is just updating?
    I have a couple Avets myself and they've been very good for me.

    I have a few Avets but quickly realized that they show wear with the anodizing. Mechanically they are still great. The problem is (like charter fishing) that our guests (family friends) don't realize they need to be treated with some care. I have since switched out to Penn lever drags for family and friends.

    I might guess a charter outfit likes to keep things looking new. Also the Avets (like other high end reels) need to be rinsed with fresh water daily and also need to be regularly serviced and oiled less they get crusty.

    I bought 5 from him today. He only has a few MXL left but several of the other models.
    The HX's are in pretty good shape but the MXL's are scratched up.
    The price was right and since they are pre-scratched up I won't worry about my guests and family abusing them.
