I think all these mgl reels cast very similar to one another.
What really like is that I use this gen of reels out of the box no mods.
These new mgl reels are so good that the other reel manufacturers are playing catch-up at this point.
Shimano is killing it!
I have: 2-Met mgl 1-CH mgl 1-Batntam mgl

The tatula SV is the only Daiwa i own at the moment. I have a love hate relationship with this reel because its the noisiest reel i own. When i spin the handle with no tension on it its just a noisy mess, but when you have tension on it like a lure retrieve its great. Its a casting machine with Hedg...

I have this rod also, I like it alot but its best suited for 1/2 and up spinnerbaits/chatterbaits. You can throw lighter baits with it but its not intended to be a light bait rod.

I grew up using Shimano reels but Daiwa is killing it with their braking systems. Its nice to be able to just snug the tension knob just so its not loose and use the Magforce to brake with. I never touch the tension knob!
Daiwa SS SV with a 8.1 brass gear is by far the smoothest reel iv had in a long time. I think Daiwa reels spin more freely in the handle than Shimano. I think the new Shimanos and their huge gears kind of take away from that freeness(if that make any sense)that Daiwa has. JMHO

The gears swap in the Curado 70 to the 200i, so there is some interchangeability.
Ci4 set wasn't even close, so I would say that the MGL set wouldn't work either, since the frame didn't change.
Well that bites!
