Daiwa tatula on eBay 100 bucks, that's what I'd buy.

I have a Revo S and it has been a very reliable reel.

My Revo S reels have worked great. The Revo reels have a stronger drag system than most reels. You can actually pick up an SX on ebay for cheaper than an S in a store. I seen them the other day for $116 with free shipping. There is not really much of a difference in the reel but why not upgrade if it costs less.

All of the reels mentioned are great reels. I had a Revo S, but couldn't ever get comfortable with it because of the bigger gearbox design on the Gen 3 models. All of the Revo's I have are Gen 1's. That gearbox and the way I have held the rod never worked. Not sure where you are buying the reel from but I would put it on the rod just to make sure it feels good.

My son bought me a Daiwa Lexa 100HS for Christmas and I love it!!!
