I think Shimano made a mistake by removing backwind from latest reels and rules them out for me, I have a couple of Daiwa reels I paid £60 for procaster evo and old TDM and both are very good just as good as equivalent ShimanoSame as most others really, buy what suits the need best. Having said that, love my Shimano reels, do have others though. Only have Map poles. Strangely, i will not use Daiwa at all, over priced and even more so, over-hyped, IMHO of course.
