MarkT said:Yes, the handle gets harder to turn as the drag increases (> 10# on my JX). I think they suffer from a side load on the bearings with higher drag.
Yep, Avet reels do this more than any other lever drag reels. I 've had Accurates, Shimanos,Tiburons, and others. None of these other reels bind up like Avets. What 's up with all the Avets fiends?Samson said:Hey All,
I have a question for all of you Avet owners.
Do you find it harder to turn the handle on your SX, MX, and MXJ 6/4 when the reel is at strike vs when it is out of gear?
