    don't know anything about the Daiwa baitcasters.... but like the above posts I can recommend the Curados. I have several anglers that use them a lot and I've done routine maintenance on at least ten of them. Very well built reels with little to go wrong (and all of my guys are using them for heavy salt/backcountry stuff with braid in the 30 to 60lb range...

    In my own arsenal it's mostly Calcuttas in 250 and 400 sizes. They're alright for the salt - but I wouldn't recommend them for freshwater work. If you look around a bit almost any of the old Shimano Bantams were great reels for both fresh/salt and you can still find parts for most of them....

    I've been a baitcaster guy for a while, using Shimano's, particularly their Citica "D" line which is a step below the Curado. Recently, during the course of switching from right to left hand retrieve, I was enticed to get a Revo. Mostly because of the reviews, spool breaking system, and that, wow, 24lb. drag they advertise. I have fished it for a while now, and it is a nice reel. Don't let the big drag # persuade you, though. You'll never get close to that in regular use.

    They are not saltwater specific but Shimano approves their use in saltwater. No probs but dont expect to neglect it like a senator and have it not develop issues. That reel is probably the benchmark in LP baitcasters. It will treat you right.

    Its a great reel. Any shimano you pay more than$100 will be approved for saltwater use.

    If you're interested in the curado, also take a look at the new daiwa lexa 300. I have both a curado 300EJ and the lexa 300. I definitely prefer the lexa 300 since it feels much more solid and refined. Also, it is cheaper than the curado 300.
