High End Baitcasting reel

I am going to upgrade one of my setups and was wondering if anyone had some suggestions. I have one Bass Pro Shops inexpensive baitcasting reel on a XPS Trigger stick. I only use it for slabbing, and pulling bouncers because it has a flipping switch and it serves its purpose just fine. The other is an XPS 7' Trigger stick with an Ambassaduer 5600C4. I love the rod, but I would like to upgrade the reel to something a little more smooth.

It will be used for Bass and Pike fishing. I also visit my family in North Caralina every summer and they are striper fisherman. In fact I am considering moving there this summer to be close to them and the incredible fishing that surrounds them!

Anyway, what do you guys use?

I have 3 of the bass pro extreme reels and I am pretty happy with them for 50 apiece. I also have several of the quantum 1310 mg and these reels are very smoth for around 50. If you want to spend 100+ it is hard to beat shimano.
