I have to go with the new Tidewater series by Shakespeare. If there are some of you out there who dont want to spend more that 35-40 dollars on a rock solid reel, this is your best bet. Im sure that most everyone who has ever used one of these agrees. Walmart sells these so you can take them back if anything goes wrong with them. They cast like champs, have extremely loud clickers, have tremendious cranking power and large comfortable power handles. If any of you are on a budget, please consider giving this reel a try.
