I would agree with Botsari. Take a look at the Okuma's, I have a 5/6 and a 7/8 and they've been going for years, they've even been used in saltwater. I think they're under $60, large arbor, nice drag. I also have a handful of expensive reels that were purchased only for their looks and because I could. Never really needed any of the fancy drags and mechanics they tout....after all I've never put a trout on the reel anyway, salmon yes, small mouth bass yes. And these reels have handled all of that.
Personally I prefer a large arbor reel, every time.
