To late but - Penn Captiva CV2 4000 vs Shimano Sedona 4000FD

Hi Guys

If you were to choose between the Shimano Sedona 4000fd and the Penn Captiva CV2 4000 which would you go for.

I chose the Penn which I got at wall-mart while on holiday.

2 main reasons, I had used another penn reel a few days earlier and it was really nice and felt like a well made piece of kit, secondly it looked cool ;-)

I will be loading on my new braid soon and then trying it out will report back.

I hate to say this but the Craptiva turned out to be a windknot creation machine for me - worst reel I ever had for braid (oh and all the gold peeled off in about 3 sessions)

hope yours is a newer version & that you dont have the issues I did
