Avet casting reels (SX - HX) are grouped in "families" or "series" by size, more specifically by diameter, with the SX Series being the smallest, and the HX Series the largest. Within each series, there are different options and variations:

  • Spool width ("J" or "jig" denotes a narrow spool, and "L" or "large" is a standard width spool, and "W" is a "wide" spool)
  • Different retrieve speeds, (numbers with "." denote single speed gears while numbers with "/" denote 2-speed gears. Example: SX 5.3 = single speed, SX 6/4 = 2-speed)
  • Increased drag output (Raptors) and magnetic anti-backlash cast control (M.C. Cast) are also options within a series
