I am most definitely a Daiwa guy. Not that I don't have a good number of other reels.
I have 13 spinning reels, 9 of which are Pflueger Presidents, 3 are lower priced Daiwa Revros and Legalis and 1 KastKing Sharkey II that I actually like. I don't really consider the spinning reels so important to me to make me want to spend a ton of money on them. They are all on rigs that I use and enjoy, but in a limited way like 6 Crappie poles, a couple of massive 10' trolling rigs, ultra light rigs, and etc. Stuff that I only use for a few weeks a year for very particular things. The Pfuegers have been excellent for this.
I have a couple of the Swedish Abu round bait casters that I mostly use for cut bait fishing or for using live bluegill on the Flathead spawn. I like them a lot and have had them for ages. Also a pair of Daiwa Line counters that I use on trolling rigs.
I voted based on my LP bait casters though. I love the JDM stuff from Daiwa. I currently have 4 TDZ 103 (my absolute fav's), 4 Px68R, 4 Steez 100h, 2 SS SV, 1 Tat CT-R (very under rated IMO), 1 Tat SV, and 2 low cost Laguna 100 (probably the best $50 reel made).
Other than that I have a couple of Abu Revo SX G3(decent if a bit clunky), a Pfueger Supreme XT (Ho Hum...)
And then there are a half dozen of the various KastKing reels that I bought on a whim just to see what all the fuss is about. Still don't know what all the fuss is about since only one was deemed worthy of putting on a rod (except the 1 spinning reel which is actually pretty nice). I fished with that 1 Kastking for about 2 hours before I put it back in the box. I'd sell them all off if I thought anyone would give me something for them. I considered giving them to my young grandson, but just don't have the heart to dump that junk on him. He'll get the Lagunas to start with. (I don't trust his dad, my son , to do the right thing as he is a Lew's guy.)
Oh yeah, I do have a couple of old Zebco 33 and a Johnson Century left over from the old days, kept for nostalgic reasons (they were my Dad's)
2 BPS Carbonlite 2.0's
2 BPS Carbonlites (gold models)
2 Lews BB1 Pros
4 Abu Revo Premier Gen 2's
So it's a mixture for me, as long as the reel is a dual brake system, or centrifical system.
Spinning is all Plueger Supreme MG's or Patriarchs.
