Carry on using Maya I think
You'll get to grips with it if you keep working at it.

I'd try out the demo of Modo if I were you as well. For some reason, it wouldn't work on my PC, but it seems like an amazing modeler.

Lightwave


I struggled with Maya but found it very capable.

3Dstudio seems to be an ice breaking norm.

I use 3DSMax, and its a pretty good program. Its a bit...complicated at times.

I can't help but feel, if Modo worked on my machine, that it would have been the better modeller available for me to use
It also allows you to texture and sculpt within the program itself, without using external sculpters like Z-Brush/Mudbox.

It can certainly create some good stuff with its onboard renderer anyways:
