I don't have the reels you mentioned, but I have the Galvan Rush for my 7 wt. Even though this is their bargain reel, I find the drag more than adequate (stripers up to 30in., sm bass, pike, salmon). Overall, it has bomber, no-nonsense construction. I would recommend their products generally, although I haven't used the standard.

it appears the standard's only 'features' is that it's small arbor and in the mid-range for price. Is that Small Arbor what you are seeking, and why? The Rush is equivalent in price - could be a good bet.
