    MAK 16 sea has my vote. Although to be honest I have only fondled it...not fished it yet.

    I'd get the penn, in 20 years you'll still be able to get parts. Just one angle if you tend to hold onto gear

    Visx, but unless you have an upcoming trip I would wait til the Fred hall show to save a few bucks and probably get some free gifts as well as test out all the other gear

    I have the Mak and love it, and I’d still take a serious look at the Penn before I made up mind about which of the two I’d go for if I was you.

    Buy the PENN. It’s easily the best of the bunch

    ^^^ This!!! ^^^

    Although I have the Mak16 and Mak20, I'd still take a close look at the VISX line. Haven't fished either though.

    You have already narrowed down your selection to 3 excellent choices. Pick the one you like best. Don't let all us internet trolls make your decision for you as it may not be the best one for YOU.
