I've been using the Team Daiwa Advantage reels since they hit the market. My Shimano MGs are saved for bass fishing. Since salt is so hard on reels, I look for something good, but not super expensive.
I haven't used their Coastal Inshore reel or the Tierra, but would be interested in some reports.
I usually match with an All Star 7' medium light to light action rod depending on the lure, and a 6'6" medium for topwaters.
By the way, I'm talking baitcasters, not spinning. I usually only use spinning on finesse and some live bait.
