TROUT REELS $100 - $200
These reels will offer fairly lightweight performance and be reliable for many years assuming the angler takes good care of them. When new these reel spin great, don't bind, and will perform well. Most are made from a die cast process and don't posses the durability of more expensive machined aluminum reels. Overall they are a wonderful value but don't dismiss the idea of spending a bit more for lighter weight and superior strength.
