which reel to buy?

I'm just getting into tuna fishing and I was going to get a jig set up for butterfly jigging. I also was thinking of using it for cod fishing. But mostly for Tuna. I'm looking at the Penn Torque 300, Shimano Tyrnos 20, And the Trinidad. Which one do most of you fish with? Any help would be great. I'm looking for something that's gonna last and is some what simple to rebuild or fix after a season of fighting big fish. Also, How big a tuna do you think I could reel in with these reel? 50-150pound class?
Thanks Dan

Mines an older one,bought brand new.HXLW(I believe)single speed wide,with dual drags,and accucast.It IS heavy,being a wide model,but I wanted the extra capacity for larger fish.
I'll be honest,all I've done with it,is Stripers,and Cod,but it's performed flawlessly,and I expect it to subdue some large Tuna,and that,right quick.

I've got a set of these for jigging.

Bulletproof, and affordable. Been very happy so far.
