definitely, the extreme. the new 2009 models are on sale in the stores thru sunday for $59.94. i bought two as backup reels and i've been very impressed with them.

i'm not a fan of the megaforce...i had two of them and, at first, i thought the twitchin' bar would be a helpful feature. as it turned out, i almost never used it because twitchin' via the rod gives better sensitivity. plus, the bar got in the way and made palming the reel very comfortable.

if the accurist you're thinking about is not the PT version, i'd recommend against it. i had accurist IIs and they displayed a very disconcerting behavior wherein, right after the cast, it took 5-6 full turns of the handle before it felt like the spool shaft was fully engaged. i had two of them and they both did it.

I would say the extreme as well.  I have heard good things about the Acurrist PTs and people who have them seem to love them. Wanted a megaforce but glad I decided against it and got my code.  not very comfortable with the twitching bar...sounds good in theory but it seems that it's not great in practice.

Hmmm alright looks like its gonna be a hard one to choose. Worse part is that its for my brother, so it cant be like "whichever feels best for you". So I am leaning towards the Quantum because i own a few Tour editions and love them

I've got 6 BP reels and now have 4 Accurist PTs. The Accurist is a better reel. They are worth the $130 price and a steal at the sale price. Everyone that has them loves them. I have only read one bad review of the Accurist and the guy just got a bad one.
