I had 2 lexa 400, and never used them,I can’t speak to the daiwa because I have never owned one but I have the 400 and 500 Tranx and love them
Resale value can be an odd metric for reel performance, but for the sake of debate, I made a quick frequency distribution of the first 50 threads in the BD Classifieds under the search terms "Lexa" and "Tranx", respectively. Based the tags that currently appear on the first 50 threads of each search term, here's what the data show:There's got to be a reason that TranX don't usually sell right away. Unless they're really priced low.
But Lexas usually sell right away. For more than i bought my reels for brand new.
dont forget penn just came out with a fathom low profile... I brought the 400 hs... it feels solid, but I have not tested it yet... I also have a tranx 500 and 400 hs... 500 is a beast and in a league of their own.... only problem is small drag (25lbs) for big reel.. 400 hs is awesome, but again only 18 lbs drag for reel.
i brought a daiwa and a komodo, sold them after using them for a couple of weeks.
Disclaimer: I use reels from shimano, penn, accurate, seigler... so i am not a fan for any brand.
