Am i correct.

The Tranx 3000 and 4000 are the same reel except the 4000 has a a bigger spool / line capacity

Yep... Both come in HG and LG as well as lefties. Oddly, the HG models have the power handle and the LG models a traditional double baitcaster handle.

Reason for me looking at the 3000 is that the 4000 almost has too much capacity... It's more than one needs. Must say, they are beautifully made reels. I haven't held the 5000 in my hand, but apparently, it's a winch on note.

Liked my 400 Tranx and Major Craft combo so much, I bought myself a 500... It's a winch of note. Then I found a Temple Reef BD100 blank on sale in the States, brought it out, and my mate Brandon built the rod for me. I picked it up from him about 2 weeks ago but have not had the opportunity to go down to the dam for some throwing practice, but I'll report back once I have.
