I have a Lamson ULA Force 3, extremely light.. it far more durable than I could have imagined. Never an issue with it - had it for about 10 years.
Ross - only have an Evolution - great products
Nautilus - still on my list to check out
Like most things there is no best, just how it suits you
I would seriously contact them and get a new reel, you must have a one in a million lemon or something. Used Galvan Torque reels more than anything else over the past few years, never once had an issue.
They are good people, just call them.
