Excellent discontinued reel. Be aware that the new Litespeed models will not accept spools from this discontinued model. This reel is very smooth in both drag and an retrieve. The Hard Alox is very scratch resistant. Large arbor design provides fast pick-up.
The 3X is only different from 3 in that it has a slight "vee" in the spool which increases line capacity. The spools for the 3X and the 3 will fit the same the same frame. But again, they do not fit the most recent model of the Litespeed.

Lamson did a great job on this reel and Sierra Trading Post's pricing makes it even better. This is a quality reel that works well with newer light weight rods. The only negative is that you cannot change spools while fishing (i.e. when the reel is wet).
