Had S'pere Omni, an Okuma something and Daiwa Regals, I would have to say the Daiwa's were the best by far.

These are the old Regal Z 4550 if I remember correctly (not the new shape/size Regal)

great bit of kit, my father in law still uses his, the free-spool ratchet sound is quite loud (in some respects a good thing as you can do a day session without alarms!) and for small water work I couldn't really fault them (still have a pair as my spares).

they look decent enough, i have found i own a pair of small freespools, they are grauvall`s and not very good but might do for what i need
