Concept Reels question

Okay guys, I've been using Lews reels for the last few years and have been reel (ha) happy with them, but keep hearing that the Concept 13 is special. So, are they truly that much better than the bb1ng inshore? If so, I'll go buy one.
Should I get the 13 or the 3?

If it is not broken, don't fix it. Just my opinion and some may not agree but this is the hype, flavor of the day, the zeitgeist of the time. Google the definition of zeitgeist, LOL! Just an observation but many, many, many of the anglers I see using them have had it subsidized in some way or another. Not saying it is a bad marketing strategy, but nobody knows what the condition of these reels will be 4 years from today. Meanwhile, on Facebook the prostaffers have found the Holy Grail My reel cleaner shared with me that he has seen a few at his shop and can't order parts. Not sure why but they don't want others working on them. True or not, I am holding out.

Have the Concept C, fished with the Inception, A, and KP.

Honestly, I'm not impressed. I had bad experience with their customer service to start. Only had the reel for a few months now and nothing has messed up on it, but I personally can't see the $230 price tag on it. Much happier with the Lews Lite. Not to mention, 13 doesn't have too good of a rep for saltwater. I'm not saying they are bad reels by any means. But they are a little on their horses as far as price goes. I'd buy another C if I found one for like $150. $230 is going to Lews though.

I love my Concept 13, but it's already been warranty replaced once... and I don't fish that much.

Heard on the radio the new 13 TX and matching Hook Spit rod $100 off at Hook Spit. Must be a pricey son of a gun for $100 off deal.

I have the concept c and the lews lite. I will prob end up selling the concept for another lews. My concept sometimes makes a whistle noise when I cast and a drop of oil on the rail that the guide goes on usually fixes it. Other than have not had a problem. They are both good reels I just favor the lews more.
