Is there a casting reel for about $100 that stands out from the heard? I've been using spinning gear most of the time for a few years and have lost touch with which casting reels in this class are the most popular. I will use it on a MH 7' rod for plastics and jigs. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

The BPS Pro Qualifer, the Abu Garcia Orra SX, or the Lew's Speed Spool

BPS Pro Qualifier

Abu Garcia

Lews Speed Spool

I also have a ABu Garcis Pro Max that I really like . I have a Lews BB1 but a lot of times I leave it home and use the AG Pro Max .

The original Shimano Curado. You can pick them up used easily for $100 or less. And it will outlast anything you buy new.

Great reel. I'm sure the others are fine to, but I know for a fact these are very good reels for the money.

I like the Abu Garcia Revo S3. Never thought I would have said that but, I like it more than my Quantum Smokes and Curado's...

The BPS Pro Qualifier and the Lew's Speed Spool are all the reel I need.

The $99 reel from Lews is a great bargain. I am not sure, but I believe that Lews is the only company that puts 8 or more bearings in a reel under $100. Please correct me if there is another.

Also, the BPS Pro Qualifier is a heck of a reel as well. About two or three times a year, you can get the BPS Pro Qualifier for $75 instead of the normal $99

Shimano Caenan 150

To me, the Shimano Caenan stands out over other reels. Why? Because I don't think there is a smoother reel in it's price range. Remember, Shimano also makes bike gears, and they need to be smooth for those cyclists. They take some of their bike technology and put it into reels. I've owned other reels in the same price range but the Caenan blows them all away. To be honest, I see no reason to go above the Caenan and get a Curado, it's just as good if you ask me. It's a great reel at a great price.
