    Most Durable Low Profile Reel for Shallow Water Rockfishing?

    No worries as tranx is a fine reel for sure used within its limits. But that SS gear of the Komodos will last as long as 4 tranx gears pushed hard. Or something like that anyways as it is hard to strictly quantify. Regardless the Komodo gearing is vastly tougher and an amazing value. Wahoo...

    Most Durable Low Profile Reel for Shallow Water Rockfishing?

    Komodo is class of the bunch for toughness, imo, with the Lexa HD a close second. Revo Beast for all day casting. Tranx are over priced for sure. You do have to maintain them all or come to grief.

    Tranx 400 vs Lexa HD 400

    Lexa HD is a substantially tougher reel with larger capacity. As above the Tranx 400 is more a swimbait reel (like the old Curado) rather than a real popping or surface iron go to beast. Just get what works for you, but that deal at Turner's above was not to be missed.
