    On the Daiwa, the good is they're bulletproof. The bad is they're heavy with no instant anti-reverse. The ugly is, well... they're ugly.

    On the Penn, The good is they've corrected the problems with the first battles and they are a solid reel, priced right. The bad is they're not as light as most of their contemporaries, though I would translate that as they are stronger. The ugly remains to be seen: Will the paint flake off?

    In Diawa I prefer the old school " Black Gold "....great reel that back in the day the guides loved because of low upkeep.

    I have the new battle II...so far solid as a rock.
    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.
    Knots to be unraveled
