6wt Tibor Back country CL, Ross F1, or Orvis Mirage
 
In terms of drag performance, reliability, and durability which do you think is best. It's going to be used for carp, bass, trout, and light steelhead. I don't have much experience with Tibor but hear they are great. I do have experience with Ross and Orvis though....

Of those three maybe the F1 but what about Hatch, Nautilus, Hardy DD...and in what line weight?

No experiance with the Ross or Orvis. I had a Tibor Light years ago that was fine. I currently am using an Abel super 5n on my 6wt. and love it.

Abel Super 6 is my favorite 6wt reel, but out of your list I would go with the Tibor.
