Recently had the opportunity to test out the new Daiwa Lexa 400-HS-P baitcasting reel during my recent trip to Thailand. Thailand is home for monster fish such as Mekong Catfish, Giant Siamese Carp, etc.. These species would definately test out the drag system on the Lexa. The 400 model is practical new. It is a big spool reel designed to battle monster species such as those in Thailand and other brutes worldwide. I found the reel to be exactly what one needs. The powerful 25lbs drag system can handle these fish. The Lexa 400 is easy to cast as it weighs 16.2oz when equipped with the Power Handle. It has a smooth 7 bearing system and is extremely fast at a ratio of 7.1:1. The line retrieve per crank is 37.7in and holds approximately 200 yards of 80lbs braid. I had no problems whatsoever with the reel and highly recommend you taking a look at it. The Lexa series as comes in smaller 100, 200, and 300 sizes along with either a power gear or high speed gear. The 400 series is very similar to the Shimano Tranx at a fraction of the cost. Plus the Lexa is about 4 ounces lighter which really helps out on a day of casting to monster fish!
