Default Need some reel advice...G Loomis Venture or Redington Drift

Looking for a couple of reels. One is for a 6 weight and one is for a 4 weight. Both are trout rods and used with WF line. Drag is not really an issue as im mainly a palmer. Any experience with either of these two models? What is the better bargain?

Im not familiar with either of these reels though to be honest they both look nice. You may consider going with a pflueger medalist instead though. They are built like a tank, have a good drag, will last forever, and can be had for under $30. No palming rim but honestly those are over raited. I would opt for the 1492 and the 1494 respectivly
