    I have had 2 65's and 2 80's for 2 years and my son now fishes with them because I went back to baitcasters. They have all been excellent with no problems so far. Tough to beat for the money.

    I have two 65's. My avatar explains how I feel about them.

    The earlier ones use to have bail failure problems. I have one that failed after the thrid use. They since fixed that problem and came out with a new 08 model. I have heard other people having good luck with them.

    Having owned and used the AV-65s as I have and do, I would think that the AV-80s are just as user friendly with a Little more line capacity to boot. Many people have voiced concerns over the Baitfeeder lever not engaging and it has not been an issue for me. You should be more than HAPPY with this product. JMHO!!!!!!
