Of the Pflueger's and Shimano's that you have shown, I believe the Shimano's cast the best. Reason being, these are single piece spool designs, the spool shaft passes through the pinion gear. Shimano's system is different in that they use a frame mounted bearing to support the pinion and help hold it in better alignment, the Pflueger lacks any support for the pinion and it can rub on the spool shaft. The third bearing in the Pflueger design, the one under the tension cap, has very little impact on casting. The spool shaft on that end is a bit smaller than the ID of the bearing and actual makes almost no contact. The bearing is there for when the reel is under torque and the frame and spool flex a little bit, the bearing then makes contact and helps hold everything in a better alignment.
I prefer the Daiwa and Abu designs with a free floating spool, no spool shaft through the pinion.
