Whatever brand you choose, a machined reel will outlast a cast reel many times over (usually) when climbing boulders, etc, etc associated with small-stream mountain fishing. I've busted several cast reels in the past by an accidental drop while climbing rock faces, etc. Not to say a machined reel wont have problems, but overall, they are tougher.
I'd definitely look for a machined reel.
