Shimano Reel

what is the best fishing reel brand?

I like abu garcia and browning and quantum but i wanna know whos the best out of all the brands for spinning reels?

I'm a Shimano person. I own over 48 different Shimano reels going back to 1990. I fish all over the world and have pretty much every model they made. I was a Penn reel person before that, but after using Shimano, it's hard to beat the power and smoothness of the Shimano's.
