For what its worth:

One of my first baitcasters was a very cheap Daiwa in the $40 range....It lasted a long time and worked well.

Never tried the others

Plus ,  if u need a left hand retrieve the Daiwa is the only one with it out of your choices here.

If you live near a BPS, I would wait until they have their spring sale.  They usually have a reel trade-in and some really good sales on their house brand reels.  They only reel from them that I have used and liked was the Rick Clunn Baitcaster.  I think last year you could pick it up for around $75 on sale during the spring sale.

Waiting for the Spring Classic is good advice, being winter and all.  All BPS and Browning reels are made by Silstar, and I'd rather own a Daiwa (I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the fact I own all Daiwa's  :D:P).  I know Raul always recommends the Procaster as a great cheaper priced reel, so I'm sure he will chime in.  So I'll say Procaster  8-)

x2 on the daiwa procaster.

The tourney reel is also a good reel. I got them both. The tourney reel is beginning it's third tour of duty with no problem. ;D

Also if you wait untill the Bass Prp Shops Classic is that they have a reel trade in program.  If you turn in a old reel that you don't use anymore ( the reel you turn in has to work ) they will give you so much off when you buy a reel. I think for a $ 80.00 reel you get $ 10.00 off.
