I like my Shimano Symetre 2500FL, Shimano Syncopate 2500FG, and Shimano Stratic 2500FJ trigger reels, $39 each. And my Daiwa Tierra 2500, and Daiwa Fuego 2000SH non trigger reels, $100 plus each if I remember correctly.
I got a couple of 2500 shimano siennas. They've held up held up great against chum, pinks and trout up there. I use them for gar and bowfin mostly down here since the move. I've had them for about 5 years and out side a little lube now and then and a bail spring replacement they still run smooth. I like them more then some of my higher end spinning reels
Fishing relaxes me. It's like yoga, except i still get to kill something.
Plueger Presidents are the only spinning reels I buy anymore. Have never had one fail me, never. Ones I bought close to 10 years ago work as well as the day I bought them and have never needed any type of refurb or service. At ~$60 a reel I just don’t believe there’s a better value out there. If there is I haven’t found them yet.
