Diawa Fuegos, which according to what I have read is a Tatula without the t shaped level wind, are available on E-bay for around $80. They have 12 bearings. I have not fished with it yet but the one I just bought seems very well made and is smooth as silk.

I will have to say though that the most comfortable reels I have ever used are the BPS pro qualifiers. They really have a great shape to them.

I use both the Abu Orra SX and Diawa Tatula and both have performed excellent.

Most of those reels can be adjusted for backlash , just be careful when casting in the beginning and let her get use to that type of reel slowly .Make sure the spool brake isn't too loose .

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

Another tatula vote super smooth for the price

With reel advancements in technology the market is awash with solid reels, but if you are looking for a deal try Academy's off brand H2o for 59-85 dollars. Reel has lifetime warrantee, with receipt, similar braking system as Shimano, cover plate opens easily without disconnecting. If you haven't used casting reels in awhile you can't go wrong. Of course if your willing to break the 100.00 mark there are some awesome reels, good luck and tight lines
