Re: Daiwa Lexa HD 300 vs 400

The Lexa 300 is a bit bigger than Daiwa's freshwater baitcasters. It's palmable but noticibly larger than a Tatula. A 300 is perfect for larger swimbaits and light saltwater fishing. A 400 would be too big for your purposes.

Re: 2019 Daiwa Admira Baitcaster

I can't imagine those knobs being thumb friendly. I like to rest my thumbs on a flat knob when reeling a baitcaster.

I would like to see the TWS on a smaller, Alphas sized frame.

I was thinking the same thing. Will a 2500 hold enough line and have enough drag for pike?

Thanks. Do you remember if it was 2 bearings per knob or just 1?

No as in you don't know or no the knobs won't accept a bearing upgrade?

Re: Steez palm ability?

I have the previous generation Steez (the one with red accents) and it is the most comfortable palming reel I've owned. I have average sized hands. I have/had the Sol, Core 50MG, and Curados but the Steez beats them all as far as palming goes.

Not sure if this is the one you're referring to. If so, I've written a review of it.

Re: Chronarch CI4+ owners, any update?

I was excited about trying out this reel but I just read that the drag star is plastic. Now I'm a lot less excited. A $270 reel shouldn't have a plastic drag star. where did you read that the drag star is plastic? its aluminum I read it at this review which I found on another thread here. It's at t...
