Got myself the new Lexa 400. Wow, what a reel. Filled it full of 50lb Daiwa silk braid, this stuff is beautiful. Like my 300, this one is super smooth and casts like a bullet. I think I will use the 300 as a river reel and the 400 as my new surf reel. Anyone considering a new reel would do real well to look these up, they are right at the top of the heap.
