As much as I am a Daiwa fan, you can't beat the Shimano Symetre for $99, or even a Penn Battle at the same price

I've been very happy with my Shimano Sahara reels. I've got an older model and a new one. Those that have fished both the Sahara and Symetre, is there that much of a difference? The price point is almost the same with the Sahara being a few dollars cheaper.
According to the Shimano site the Sahara has 3 SS Bearings to the Symetre's 4 S A-RB Bearings. The gear ratio for the 4000 class is 5.8:1 to 5.7:1 respectively.
