Default Any opinions on the 3-speed Avet 50 wide?

It looks like a real winch in this video:

I should be seeing a demo soon although I'm still not sold on the idea. We shall see. Hopefully we can bust a few big swordfish on it and find out!

I want to get one for snapper season next year.

Avet puts out a good product no doubt but murphys law and all that. 1:1 gear ratio is indeed winch like! Price isnt too bad either considering.

~Some~ over-zealous bass fishin types reel too fast after a snapper bite. The 1:1 should help with that.

The Avet in 2 or 3 speed weighs in at 67 oz.

A Tiagra 50wlrsa is 86.3 oz.

With the Avet you never take your hand off the crank to shift gears, just push the button with your index finger.

I'm not sure it's worth $200 more for the 3rd gear. I'm hoping they drop the 2-speed model and bring the price down on the 3-speed before spring.

You gave your brother a present and he wasn't impressed? Nice guy!

Big fan of any avet, they have always performed very well for me.
