What do you plan to use it for? My reels are bought and used based on the intended technique I plan to use the reel for.

Tatula, SLX, Lew's Mach 1, Abu Revo S, would all be very serviceable for your needs.

I have owned all of those except the slx. I have used the slx, so I will add it to the list.

they are all functional, but this is how I would rate them:

 

1: tatula

2: fuego

3: slx

4: revo s

5: mach 1

 

While it is usually a little more expensive the Tatula is far superior to the others in my opinion. The magforce z brake is worth the extra money.

the fuego is close to  a tatula. maybe just a little less refined

 

I have only uses an slx a couple times, but it felt like a solid reel.

 

The revo s is not bad, but you can often get an SX on sale for about the same price. it is a much better reel.

 

In my opinion the mach 1 is Lews version of the abu silver max. I own 2 that collect dust in my spare parts compartment.

Some Fuegos are $75 on Amazon. With $50 off you basically get to steal it.

Wouldn't Lews version of the Silver Max be the $80 Laser reel?

I was comparing the reels according to how they handled in my hands. 

To me the mach 1 feels like a silver max. . I do like the BB1.

I'd go with the slx or lews tournament mb.  The daiwas are fine reels but they're too big, location of the brake dial is a no go for me, and not a fan of the t wing. The revo sx is also a fine reel. Love my slx reels tho lol

My last 3 reel baitcaster purchases have been a Tatula 100, Tatula SV TW 103HS, and a Tatula 150. If I had $50 off, I'd be adding another Tatula.

I can afford any of them but love a good deal . I could get the fuego for 25 dollars , with 30 per cent off  coupon and fifty dollars off I can get a KastKing Speed demon for free .

I'm glad someone else is all about a great deal. $50 off a $200 reel is a good deal but a $75 reel for $25 is great lol

I’d get one of the Tatulas or a Zillion depending on how much extra money I had to spend. If money was tight I’d definitely get the Fuego for $25.

Id say anything shimano. However looks like Amazon has the mb for $95. Less the 50 thats pretty good bang for the buck.

The speed demon is a decent reel. It works well with heavier baits. I own one speed demon and one speed demon pro. They do pickup a lot of line in a hurry.

One is used for whopper ploppers and frogs. The other is used for Carolina rigs.

If you want to cast light baits the Fuego will do a better job.

Given my experiences with them - a Fuego CT for $50 or less...or a President for almost free.

Great price on a very nice reel.

 

Fuego CT for $25-$50 is also a great choice.

 

But $45 for a Tournament MB would probably be my first choice.  I do love my Daiwas so either would work for me.  :D

This site costs me a pile of money. I was just reading this thread and thought “Man I have a new rod coming and $45 worth of amazon dollars to spend. A Fuego for $30 sounds like a great idea!!”  

 I need to take a break from Bass Resource!!
