New Light and Tough concept is one of DAIWA’s main stream of developing new products. This is easy to understand, and having positive reviews from anglers now a days.
And now, Another LT concept spinning reel is out – DAIWA Lexa LT.
TOUGHNESS REEL FOR TOUGH USE LIKE SHORE JIGGING, ROCK FISHING
This reel has some important features like the other LT series, such as Magsealed at around pinion gear, ATD – Automatic Drag System, Air Rotor, Tough Digigear…
But the main things are the price of them, and Strength achieved by aluminium body.
At the beginning of LT concept, DAIWA produced Freams ’18 at the last year, for the entry model. This is a “Versatile” spinning reel that you can use for lots of types of fishing, but with affordable price.
And this Lexa LT’19 is, comparing to Freams’18, a bit heavier but toughened up as Freams’18 has combination of metal + resin body, especially for tough saltwater use – Shore Jigging, Rock Game Fishing, etc. Of course offshore light jigging can be the one as well.
If you are a game fishing angler – like using hard body lures, metal jigs, the metal body is very important from my point of view. I used to use both but resin body reel can be weakened by tough use, especially from Jigging.
But metal body is really strong, and you won’t feel it weakened easily.
