One of the two Lexas dismantled and cleaned.
A great reel when it comes to swedish pike fishing, it copes fairly well with heavy baits. One of few flaws I can find is the remarkable difference in size between the two spool ball bearings. Without having the proper engineering knowledge I guess this leads to differences in wear over time. The spool axle on the side of the small non handle side bearing isn't supported while the handle side is supported by both the pinion gear and a plastic bushing.
The bearings are typically the first to fail and it think the above mentioned is part of the explenation.
