Jun's comment: Exist's small spool design will be the new standard for spinning reels today. Braided lines have far less friction at spool edge than mono-lines, and smaller spool is to reduce friction at rod guides to add casting distance, as long as line twist may be well managed. I have felt previous Daiwa 2500 has too large spools, and I can't wait to test new Exist 2500.
