I am looking for a good quality reel but I am broke, any suggestions.
what kind of reel are you thinking you want? Baitcaster? Spinning reel? What size?
Get a stick and some sewing thread! LOL. Or a zebco 733 Hawg.
Abu Garcia 5000. Get 'em used on E-Bay for around $25-$30. One of the best baitcasters made.
Wait till you get paid and then go out and get a reel, Abu's to Penn's is the best place to start looking.
What DeerHunter said - I have both & you can't go wrong with either. Both durable and affordable.
I would save up my money and get an Abu in the 6000 series.
Like WylieCat said, look on Ebay. I just bought 3 like new penn 209's for a little over $30 each.
For starting out don't go smaller than a 6500 ABU Garcia. If you get serious about big fish later on you can still use it, and upgrade to a 7000 for your next reel. Whatever you do get make sure it comes with a clicker, also called a "line-out alarm". You can get real tired of holding your rod for hours waiting for a big flathead. LOL I"m sending you a PM for a site to start your search.
i bought a abu 6000 and gave $43.00 and some change for it off ebay
