Shimano, sahara or symmetre. Awesome drags, instant flawless anti-reverse, best bang for the dollar!

Can't disagree with anyone on this thread! (Although the new Symetre is $100 now. Still worth the money though!)

I still see the old style Symetre around for $70-80 bones. Sports Authority seems to have quite a few. The ones close to me are out of 2500's though.

The symetere was just listed as $75 in the new outdoor life, it won the tackle test for spinning reels.

That must have been the old version symetre. The 2009 models are $99.99.

The new Sahara is very nice, the new Symetre is a little out of the price range in the OP's title.
