Which of the current Daiwa baitcast reels does the Cabelas Prodigy reel most resemble? Also which does the ZX HS resemble?

The ZX HS is made by Quantum, They make one for Dicks sporting goods to at dicks its called Quantum Escalade Baitcast 870 at dicks..

The Cabela's Fish Eagle® Tournament II Baitcast Reel Is the Daiwa Procaster 6+1... its also this reel to thats a BPS only reel lol its just a different color, but the same reel. Daiwa® Procaster® Tournament PT100-6Bi Baitcast Reel

The Cabela's Prodigy is a Advantage 153/ Tierra... Those reels simply preform at there price points. I have a Few Advantage HSTA's that guest can grab when we head to the boat.. I have not really fished anyone the ones I bought for loaners but I have played with them a little.. Those reels are tops at there price point I bought my nephew a few Tierra's a while back and they are sweet at there price.. and the Cabela's Prodigy preforms the same and even has a Zillion like Swept handle, all for 99.99 and you can get them all the time for 70.00.. I have bought some for loaners to and a few for my dad and nephew... when they are on sale for 69.99 and you use your Cabela's club Visa card it will reduce the price in cart to 49.99 and when I see that I bought 9 for guest reels and some for my dad and nephew... I know this is telling more then you asked but Im just trying to let you know how much of a value this reel really is... This is truthfully a reel that will fish with reels in the 160-190 dollar price range and beat some of them... The Advantage HSTA is like 169.99 and its a heck of a reel at that price... Its Factory "Super tuned" casting performance is just like the Prodigy and thats good, the HSTA will go a little lower in bait weight's but not much... and you will notice the HSTA is a tad smoother thanks to the 4 bearing handle... and you can grab these reels at 50-70 bucks NEW with ease... Tackletour gave the HSTA Editor's choice award.. and gave rave reviews about the HSTA and about how it way out preformed its price point... now take that review and drop the price to 50-70 bucks and you have a flat unbelievable deal.

I've been eyeballing the Advantage TD150H. One of the sites has them on sale right now. Looks like a great reel. The 153HST, however looks like it would be an excellent reel.

the prodigy is closest to the daiwa tierra.

unlike the spinning tournament ZX, the casting tournament ZX is not made by daiwa. in fact, if you look at the current bass pro shops megacast and tourney special, they look almost identical. IIRC, the tournament ZX was the spitting image of the previous-generation quantum KVD signature reel.

That KVD reel had an ALUM frame, the ZX has a graphite frame. It is made by quantum like I said and they have a few store brand reels based on it...

The  Tournament ZX Spinning Reel is a Exceler with one extra bearing and painted white..

I have a Prodigy and it most resembles the Advantage in terms of internal parts, per the schematics.

Looking over the Daiwa site the reel is very very close to the Tierra as far as bearing count and other features.
