Never used a quantum reel before, but I picked up an mg a month ago and I love the reel. I am pretty new to bc's so I can't really compare to any others, but I do know that I will fish this reel for a very long time.

An early adopter issue   ;D

The MG is proven

The new Energy looks pretty, but doesn't have a track record yet.

I personally have a history of buying innovative, and unproven products.  That said, I just ordered an MG because I wanted to own a classic :)  I also have a Tour Edition 1171 awaiting its first use ;)

I recently purchased an MG and all I can say is....WOW  This has to be one of the lightest/smoothest reels I have ever used.  I am predominantly a Daiwa guy, but I too got a deal on a MG I couldnt refuse. I think it will become a "1st string player" this year on the boat.

The TD-X  just may have to play on the 2nd string.... ;D...

Do a side by side comparison pick which one YOU like. Both should be fine. :)

Quantum Energy, Quantum has really changed and I think they have started making dependable products.

For me, I've been using Quantum baitcasters since '97 and I have only had one issue with any of my Quantums which Reel Mech helped me figure out that I caused the failure due to neglect on my part. I haven't had any issues since. Maybe I've been lucky but they perform well for me.

I'm betting KVD would burn up any reel in a couple months :)

I fish Quantum and I've never had a problem. I love em. I know Shimano makes a great reel too. I don't think you can go wrong with whichever one you choose.
