I prefer Abu Garcia. The Shimanos I had were stripped when reeling in Stripers. Haven't had a problem since I switched over to Abu.

I like my Shimanos but Pfluegers are my favorite. I love the drag on them. Of course, I'm from Pfluegerville, TX though - I doubt the name is tied to that BTW.

It's really hard to vote without trying so many of these. I've never tried a Pflueger baitcaster so it's hard to say. I'm happy with what I have though.

OKUMA, the last 2 abu POS' I tried didn't last 3 months. I don't mind shimano, have 2 that are going into their 3rd season. Like all brands, there are certain models to avoid
