The SX is the smallest, yes? Great reels though, very good value in a fully machined, US made reel.

I am not a fan of their smaller line up - I hate the lever on the reels, while its not a huge deal for me, my wife would put the reels in full when she had a fish on and break them off. I don't need or want to worry about it while fishing. Now the EXW 30/2 is an awesome reel and would be a great Wahoo reel, and its lighter than anything Shimano has to offer (Tiargra)
I went with Accurate reels and they are a thing of beauty, they are amazing.

Yes, SX is the smallest. Great reel but you may want to consider the next step up which is the MXJ model. Only $10 more and worth every penny as it hold a bunch more line and can also be used for trolling in certain applications.

You can also invert the belleville washers on the spool shaft and nearly double your top end drag on the SX. Thery don't respond very well to neglect, if you spend a decent amount of time on the water you're going to want to service them every few weeks. I've serviced quite a few of these reels for freinds, and I can tell you first hand that you don't want to wash them down and then throw them in a closet for 3 months. I don't have alot of use for conventional stuff, but it sure is nice to see a quality product that's made in the US, offered at a reasonable price.
