Very good price on two sizes and I think the 40b is the lowest ever at $24.08 @ Amazon. For comparison the 30 size is running $35

AV- 40B $24.08

They are very dependable reels I have many pushing or past ten years old that have seen extreme use and abuse and they hold up like champs. Just a quick rinse at the end of the day and I have never even had to disassemble or grease one. Parts don't break, no sticky bails they just keep going.

Some credit goes over here where this thread that got me browsing reels . The deal linked here is for the same Avenger series but in the ABF bait feeder model and there are some great prices to be had. Surf size reel for $45 bucks is a great price. Have a look.

Newbie here, wondering the same thing.

Also, how would the quality of an Okuma Avenger compare to an equivalent Plueger President (like in this combo, for example https://www.cabelas.com/product/C...lsrc=aw.ds)

Any good deals on a pole to go with the 40B? Novice fisher, the Eagle Claw Featherlight for $20 looks decent

Honestly yes. the 30 or even the 25 would be better. If you are like me and like light gear the 25. The 40 is getting to somewhat of the the big game or saltwater size range. Good size for carp, stripers or bluefish. It could be used for bass but it's not the size at all for small creeks The 30 would work for what you describe and is a nice in between, multiple duty size that I use for everything from creeks & ponds to the ocean on occasion

Generally, this would be a bit big for what you're doing. Most of the rods you'll want to look will have a lure weight rating of 1/2 ounce of less, and this will be pretty huge on such a rod. Of the ones mentioned, the Pflueger President is the only one with which I've had any experience. It's a good reel, a little slow on the retrieve for my tasteless, and you'd probably want one in the 30 or even smaller size (line capacity of 150 yds of 6 lb test or less). With a setup like this, you'll be set for trout, panfish, and the occasional bass. Hope this helps.

They hold up very well to saltwater. The hard use I mention is mostly saltwater.

Yes, too big. Aim for 10 to 20 for small creek trout or panfish

Bought a few reels now we need to lookout for some rod deals. Maybe we'll find a few Father's Day specials.

If I'm fishing off the pier for makerel that goes up to about 1/5lb to 1 lb, what is the appropriate line weight to use ? I don't understand if the fish is expected to pull stronger than it's weight when fighting against the water and it's movement. Based on the chart :

6-10 lb Mono Inshore, pier Spinning, casting Bream, flathead, salmon, larger native fish

So 6-10lb line should be appropriate for a 1lb fish at the pier ?

I'll buy the AV-40B, the shakespere reel that came with my ugly stick GX2 is still working ok after 2 seasons, but one of them, the bail is already not flipping back smoothly. Pulling up lots of mackerel with it. Sometimes the size 6 hook works great, sometimes the 4. What size hook is recommended for 1/5lb mackerel ?

No 6 is not good for a pier. You want much heavier line for pier fishing to take the shock and abuse. Get some 30lb braid and you will be set. It will be heavy enough to take the abuse. Yet thin enough you can still get good casting distance. It will also handle bigger species if you happen to catch one or target them in the future

This stuff from Amazon is very reasonably priced.
