I am currently using all Revo Sx or STx reels but having a problem with them letting out line while in the rod box. When I finally get them untangled I can pull out drag until it stops and they fish fine but just frustrating that I am having that problem. I am thinking about trying another brand and just wanted some feedback.

Shimano Curado I

I definitely think you should go with a Curado. They've been proven winners for years and they're truly the bomb. Shimano hit a home run again with the I series and these reels feel like a $300 reel in your hand. They're very durable and strong but they're small and compact, which is hard to find in a reel nowadays. They have a smooth, buttery retrieve and all the drag power you could possibly need. I really think you'd be happy with a Curado. Give it a try!

I looked them and they only have 5 ball bearings compared to 11 on most higher end reels.

Also check into the Cabela's Arachnid... near the same as Tatula only with "Cabelas" stamped on it and 4 or 5 additional bearings and just slightly over your budget... if you can wait them out they can usually be had for $130 or so on sale

5 high end bearings. I know of 10 and 12 bearing reels I wouldn't buy or even use if they were given to me.
