daiwa shouldnt be in that sentence man!
its like comparing a kia to a bmw
I was thinking the same thing about the Penn.

Definatly Shimano. I own and use all three. I would replace them all with Shimano's if I could afford it. Without a thought about it. As a matter of fact, I was looking at replacing my quantum ultralite with a shimano Spirex 1000RD just yesterday.

Penn if you are considering only unimportant things like gear strength, drag quality and consistency, finish, etc. Shimano if you are only looking at marketing hype ;-)

But a Tiagra beats the hell out of an international.

for bottom bumping and what-not, i'm a huge fan of the shimano Trinidad... you can damn sure put the brakes on an AJ... like the torsa too, but it's exspensive, and i really don't like the lever drag.

Did all you Shimano lovers get paid for your endorsement here? I've never seen such a one sided post even on the internet. Just to make it even....anything but Shimano.

Yeah, I'm sure, especially if you are talking about gold reels (International V vs anything Shimano makes, Torque vs anything Shimano makes, etc).

Sure they do Will. Whatever you say. Exactly how many Internationalsor Tiagras do you have anyway? How about Torques, Toriums, or Torsas? That's what I thought.

we've boated everthing from 70# hoo to white marlin this year while targeting kings fishing the ska along with numerous mid 40# kings all caught on.............big ole bad Penn 535's with 25# test ande, the other things everyone bashes, ande mono.............I must be a rebel with you Harry.

actually everything on the boat is a Penn, sold all the Shimano's I owned and now have everything from Int V's to my little 430ssg.
