The patriarch is an amazing reel but the XT SURPREME handles just as well.
I'm not an expert, but the pflueger patriarch is the one I'll be buying and it's in the $200.00 range you mentioned. The review I read about it seemed very impressive for such a reasonable price. Before choosing this reel for myself, I looked through several brands including Shimano since I'm a big Shimano fan. I hope this helps.

Pflueger is very very reliable, I have all the Pflueger spinning reels and they have never let me down. You should pick one up sometime.
thanks for the posts, and im looking into every reel you guys mentioned, i want the stradic but after looking into it... it says that it reccomends 3,4 5 pound test and thats way to low to be fishing where i fish because the avg bass is 3 pounds! if this isnt true and anyone has any info on what line it takes please help. The patriarch looks really nice not sure about the brand though is it reliable?

Any of their offerings in your price range is going to be a superb reel.

I recommend #6 Yo-Zuri Hybrid which has a breaking strength of
11.9 lbs. Other options include Seaguar InvizX #10 or even 20 lb
