Any of the Lews reels. For around $159 or less if you look around....you can get the Tournament Speed Spool Baitcast Reel.

I love 'em as much as my Curado and Abu Garcia STX reels which run around $50 more.

x2 on this. Decent reels for the money.
I also really like the Carbonlites and JM Signature BCs.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris signature reels are the best value on the market.

+1 on the Citica. I had several of them a few years ago and never had any problems. Just bought one of the new 2012 models 2 weeks ago and very impressed so far.
