AVENTUS REELS - IN DEPTH 1f440.png 1f50d.png 1f525.png The Aventus reels have been designed and built for maximum performance and durability, for the serious angler. The Aventus reel project has been over three years in the making… yes three years! In this time we have seriously put the reels through their paces… testing them across various different fishing situations and weather conditions, with the aim to make the reels as efficient as they can possibly be!
In sizes 3000 and 4000 these reels are perfect for float and feeder fishing. The 3000 size is ideal for traditional waggler, shorter range Pellet Waggler, light feeder and bomb work, while the 4000 is the ultimate reel for distance feeder up to 70m, method feeder and bigger float work 1f3a3.png
The aluminium body with machine cut aluminium spool is where these reels get their superior strength. Precision machined and cut gears create super smooth rotation, durability and winding power, that lasts a long time. Even after heavy usage in the most demanding situations over long periods, the reels will retain their smooth and powerful performance assets.

The LCR line control roller is fitted with a super smooth bearing to eliminate line twist, even when using very light and delicate waggler or stickfloat mainlines the performance is exceptional. The Distance Safety Line Clip is spring loaded to absorb the pressure of the float or feeder when fishing to the line clip for accurate distance every cast, and ensures that line or braid isn’t damaged in any circumstance.
One key asset we spent a lot of time developing was the reels power and torque… The Aventus reels feature a Machine Power Gear ‘MPG’ which offers seriously powerful winding power, even under heavy load!

HSD - the Aventus reels feature a super smooth High Speed Drag system to give you ultimate control in every fish battle 1f4aa_1f3fb.png
Other features and assets include eight sealed ball bearings, plus a lightweight hollow Power Bail. This part of the reel takes a lot of hammer, and the Power Bail ensures this is tough and durable without adding weight and clumsiness to the tool. Both reels feature a one-touch folding handle for compact transportation when rods are assembled in your rod bag, quick, easy, neat and tidy!
Both reels come supplied will a full spec machine cut aluminium spare spool. Spare spools are also available to buy sperate for both reels.

£270 to a lot of anglers seems expensive but, if you have the money and want to treat yourself then why not ? Remember the Daiwa Certate was £450 some 10 years ago. 😳 You’re only here once peeps. Personally I prefer Shimano reels. They are virtually indestructible. Which is a big plus for clumsy me. 🤣

Still looks very much like a Daiwa with some detail changes (maybe the new Theory?) The listed features can be found on Daiwa reels just under a different name

For me it looks like a little modified Daiwa tournament reel. 3 years in making may be true for the daiwa one. But after all, guru tackle looks good and provides quality. So nothing wrong to buy one.

That is no Daiwa Tournament , it's a painted Match Winner 100% , just look at the pictures side by side (exactly the same body, same handle , same butterfly at the front drag.....) , and compare the spec's ( 8 ball barings , same weight etc...)

Does look to have similar features.
I'm surprised no one has ever done a tear down video on youtube to side by side compare the inners of things like this.
One for that angling4u chap maybe 😃

I've got a couple of little used Matchwinners. What do you reckon, £150 each? That leaves the new owner a few quid to buy single handles to replace the current doubles. They'll end up with a comparative bargain that isn't orange. A much more modest all black will go nicely on any rod you care to mention.

Going back to 2007 when I joined Shakespeare they bought out the new red Mach 3 XT range of reels. These lasted me years, 8 bearings 3 spare spools and I abused the hell out of them. The line clip wasn't brilliant and the line lay wasn't perfect but they stood up to a lot of abuse. Price about £45. I took John Walker on the Wye and when he had a go of my rod he commented that the reel felt almost as good as his TDM/R which at the time was around £100.

The Stradics which I used prior to getting the Mach 3's cost about the same price and these and the TDM or R, (I can't remember which one it was), were regarded as the best reels on the market at the time.

Roll on 14 years with a 2.8% P/A rise in inflation and I have to ask how did we get to where we are now with reel prices, with what seems to be almost a 200% price increase for the equivalent Daiwa reel. I have two TDM 3012 QDA's unused as I prefer my Cadence CS10's, I think they'll be going on ebay as soon as there's another offer on the CS10's.

We need a UK version of Alan Hawk......if you’ve never heard of him, google it......he takes all the top end Japanese saltwater spinning reels such as the Stella’s and Saltiga’s apart and gives an unbiased report (I assume it’s unbiased unless I’m being completely naive!):LOL:

Would be interesting to see how things compare with different coarse fishing reels on the UK market when they are taken apart.

Might finally prove which Reel the orange one actually is and help people to make an informed decision when shelling out their hard earned money :)

Morning guys, Just looking through the mail shots and have been advised by Fishing tackle and bait that these new Guru reels are finally available to buy.Having enjoyed the review by Mr Rooney, and the personal thinking of the folks on this site, it certainly appears to be raising a degree of amusement, or should that be incredulity.Like most of he guys on the site, I have owned many different brands of the reels before deciding which one suits me the best. I settled on Daiwa, and thats that. The more I am able to analyse this new reel from the photos available at the minute, and as someone said the specs sheet, it does bear a passing resemblance to a certain style of reel manufactured by Daiwa. Should this ,ahem, be the case, it does have one great benefit for those purchasing one in the future. You may be able to send it to Scotland to be serviced and repaired should the worst happen. Reassuring thought I would think for what is a chunk of money. Then again, you could always buy the original.

Had a look at some in the shop on Saturday they’re very very nice but I couldn’t justify paying £275 for a reel when I can get a Daiwa for £150

I think you should buy what you want to with your hard earned cash. I am sure you get a really high quality product for that money.

It’s not an option for me. I spend every spare penny I get on fishing but I have to settle for what I can afford. My Garbolino Altima rods were a real stretch at £130 each (two of them). They feel like the ultimate in quality to me as they are so much nicer than any other rod I’ve ever owned. I am incredibly proud of them. The secret of happiness is not to get what you want but to want what you get if you understand me. I love all my tackle and don’t often feel the need to upgrade anything. I messed about chopping and changing stuff when I came back to fishing until I found what suited me though.

I think it’s sad when people laugh at those who buy really expensive tackle, I would if I had the money. People like to feel quality.

The same applies to people who use relatively low budget tackle. I know a guy who’s retired like me and fishes with a £30 feeder rod and a £25 reel. He gets ribbed all the time but when it comes to feeder fishing he catches 200lb hauls every time out. He doesn’t even own a pole, just fishes the method all the time.

This shop are doing them for £200 in the Black Friday sale. If anyone is after an Aventus reel, that’s the cheapest I’ve seen them
