Looking to buy a couple 2-3 reels and wanting to hear some feedback. Never fished anything above the level of a SilverMax but have narrowed the sub-$100 reel choices to these;
-ABU ORRA2 SX $80
-LEWS SPEED SPOOL $74
-ABU REVO S $99

I have an Orra and it's got a super low profile. Good if you don't have big hands. I don't prefer it though just because it's a little on the heavy side and isn't a solid frame which I prefer. I also have a MGX Revo and I love it. It's not a normal revo though, but I will say I've never heard a bad thing about a Revo.

Speed spools are awesome for about the first 30 minutes. Then they start doing crazy stuff. I'd stay away.

Lew's......Some pretty good deals to be had on e-bay, Speed Spools anywhere from $45 to $60, Laser MG from $60 to $85.

Have several I use and like quite a lot.

Speed spool! I bought one and like it so much that now I only buy Lews. The lazer mg works just as well like said earlier

Lew's all day. There's a reason so many guys have switched over to Lew'sin the last 2 or 3 years, their reels are hard to beat for value.

I used to use the bb1NG and loved it that was decades ago. Last year I bought several of the new ones and I'm amazed how great they are. I bought some of the revos and to me there is no comparison. LEWS FOR SURE

Lews. Really your better off getting the BPS pro qualifier/carbonlite combo that's on sale for $100 right now.
