What is the best all around wide spool reel that doesn't cost a fortune? Looking for a wide spool reel to throw large swim baits.

I use a Lews BB2HZ. About the best I could find without going to a round reel for capacity. The Abu Orra inshore is also one to look at. You can get them both on eBay for $100-$115. I actually seen a reconditioned Lews for $80. If you dont mind buying on eBay you can get a good deal but if not they run around $160.

I like it fine. Its not head and shoulders above anything else I use but would not hesitate to buy another if the need comes. When you start buying this level(by level I mean price) of reel I dont think anybody makes a bad reel. Since I use 20Lb copoly for my swimbaits I needed a reel that holds some line and the BB2 was as good as I could find. I like the Curado 300 but they are really bulky and expensive.

Lexa 300's are what I'm using without any problems. I'm throwing baits up to 7oz on them daily.
