I've had my Daiwa MF100TSH for over 3 years and have not had any problems out of it EXCEPT for one, getting the clutch adjusted just right for my casting style but that is excepted of any bait-caster. I use it at least 25 to 30 times a year and use it all day long on my fishing trips. It has exceded my exceptatons on all levels. My father loved it so much after using mine that he went out and bought the left handed model for himself. The only thing i would change about it would be to have a extra spool come with it when you buy it, it gets aggravating having to reline it after it gets tangled up.
