Freams Kix is an old but reliable model, you can't go wrong with that if the price is right. :) There are quite a few reels within that price range, like Daiwa Revros and Daiwa Crest but both drag power is only 2kg while freams kix has 4kg. You may also want to consider Shimano Elf which is comparable to Freams.

Not that I know of, maybe it's selling well enough that Daiwa don't see a need to replace it with a new model. ;)

I don't know of any tackle shops offering on Freams right now, you can try looking at FK Classified if you do not mind second hand items. There seems to be a new version of Freams available at Fishingbuddy website as well, so do check that one out!

Welcome to HLF, Roady. :)
