    Default New line counter reels

    Ran across these small, compact line counter reels and thought that I'd give them a try. Here are some pics of the new reels. The size is nice. I can tell there is a slight quality difference in the feel vs. my Shimano Tekotas but these are a lot less expensive reels. We'll have to wait to get them Flaming Gorge Kokanee tested.

    Are those Lexas? Iíve seen them at Sportsmanís for around $129. What kind of deal did you get and where?

    Yes, they are Daiwa Lexa 100ís. TackleDirect and Amazon Prime are just a little less than that price you quoted.

    Iíve been debating between a Lexa and Cold Water low pro. The Lexa has a faster retrieve and a lower price tag. Think Iíll give the Lexa a try. The few reviews out there seem positive as well.

    The size of the Coldwater low profile is still a fairly heavy body reel, probably closer to a Lexa 300. The Lexa 100 is very small and compact. I was able to completely fill the spool with 200 yards of 10 lb. test mono.

    I fished with them last week, and they were a very smooth reel
