Back to the original question.
A more expensive reel will not necessarily be a better reel, in my opinion, the 525 is 'the' fishing reel for the west coast of scotland, some of the east coast, welsh and irish coasts; basicaly any rough ground mark where a reasonable cast may be required. Incredibly I have a total of eight 525's, that how much I rate them; its a fitness for purpose thing and the 525 is the current benchmark of fast retrieve robust small/medium casting reels. Same applies to casting reels, I only use Abu's but there are more expensive reels on the market, Shimano calcutta for example, is it a better casting reel?; I would say no. Abu 55/65 is probably the benchmark here.
