Is it a good reel for someone that has not used a baitcaster in 15+ years

My vote would go to the Daiwa Tatula CT.  I have sold off my  Shimano Curados and Chronarchs and do not miss them at all.  I fish with 1 Daiwa Exceler, 4 Tatula Type Rs and 2 CTs.  It is  personal preference I am sure.

I've used them all, Shimano for me. Like as with most things, personal preference as they will all do the job. I've owned Chevy's, Ford's, and Dodge's, always go back to a Chevy.

Like everyone says, some of the reels might fit better on your hands than others.

 

I have been picking Shimano every since I got the Curado 70. I have sold all of my reels and replacing them with them since I like the small profile and it just works good for me.  

 

The only outcast of my reels is the Daiwa Zillion 100SHA 7.1.1 which is set up with my Dobyns Champion as Lipless setup.

Its perfect for me and I can throw miles on this without any backlash...

 

Everyone has their preference, just go out and try ..bring your rod to the store and test it with choices that you like.

At the same price point, they are all pretty well equal.

If you are buying now my vote would be the Tatula CT but if you can wait my vote would be the Gen 4 Revo SX. you will get the features you see in a Revo STX now in the SX price point once the Gen 4s come to market in the next couple months. Biggest upside to that is dual brakes.
