IMO Shimano is better! Better backlash control. I have both.

I have been using the Tournament Pro models for about 2 years now and love them. They are light, smooth, cast a mile and hold up great.
I haven't had any problems yet.
You can find the Tournament Pro's on ebay new for less than $140 with free shipping.

The Tournament Pro is one of the best reels around for the money, in my opinion. I have cheaper reels that perform like cheaper reels, and I have more expensive reels that do not perform that much better than the Tournament Pro. It's just a solid reel.

I still own 10 of the original designs made by Ryobi / Browning and 2 that Zebco built.

Best reels ever made to me.
I tried a couple of the new ones..........they're ok but they won't last twenty years like some of these have.

Like Guy said:

"I got an ol' pair of boots and they fit just right,
Well, I can work all day and I can dance all night.
I got an ol' used car and it runs just like a top,
I get the feelin it aint ever gonna stop.

Stuff that works, stuff that holds up
The kind of stuff you dont hang on the wall."

I like the BB1, BB1 Pro and the Super Duty reels better than the Tournament Pro.
