I have owned both so I can give you a good comparison on my thoughts;

I hated the clutch/drag system on the Shimanos and wanted to go back to the Daiwas, that was before I upgraded the clutch and swapped the front spool for one from Future fishing, now I much prefer the shimanos!

So Standard reels - Basia
Upgraded reels - Shimano

Not 100% sure but I think the Shimano will have a line guard to stop it getting behind the spool.
Having used Basia's in the past and flouro - you will need this !

Rarely had any issuers with the mags
Had the sld a month now and no issues at all, I much prefer the clutch
Both are smooth reels tbf, I like both a lot but fancied a change and had a great deal

Thanks Sfeve. Do you think the sld are as smooth as the black mags ? Did you have any issues with fluro when using the mags ?

Just recently had a set of sld, changed from
Black mags. They are smooth as silk lovely clutch I only use
Fluoro and have no issues with it at all.
I had them at a mega deal off a friend who sold up

Imo neither are worth the money but if you have got it spend it.The sld is silky smooth but no mag seal to protect internals the shimano has shimano protection thingy but the drag is too quick on it.If it was me I think the sld would be the one out the two but the new iso would be my first choice as its magsealed if I needed new reels that is

Why not use a set of Tourney 6ks if you havenít already, they come with line guards unlike the two you have mentioned and have all the other attributes bar weight which as they set on sticks 99% of the time ainít really an issue. Used mine with 20lb subline and was comfortably hitting 120 yards with PVA bags.

Any users please give opinions on either basia sld or technium 14000xtc. I often use fluro so interested how either cope with that.
Please dont turn post into the usual Daiwa v Shimano argument/slanging match.
