Of the ones I have in that range, I like the Curado I

Yes, there will be many opinions. Foe me the two I like and depending upon use, are Lews LITE and Cabelas Archnid.

Lews tournament pro g, daiwa tatula CT type r, shimano curado 70 and curado I.

Ohio Bassin's reel, Okuma Helios Air, Pinnacle Primmus and Lew's Pro Z.   Some sell for over your $200, but I paid less for all except the Pro Z which was at your limit.   Lots of very nice reels in that price range.  My favorite is usually the one I have in hand at that time.  From reviews I've read Pflueger's Patriarch and Supreme XT are both pretty nice.  For a lot less you can add Lew's Tournament MB.  I'd add some Shimano's to my list, but have no experience with the newest models, and there will be plenty of others singing their praise.

The Curado I series for me!  But most reels at that price are pretty competitive.

I think any of the Daiwa Tatula models (Cabela's Arachnid included) represent some hard to beat value and performance.

I purchased my Alphas SV 105 for under $200 from Japan. I would say it ranks up there with the best of them. The Curado I in the 70 size or the new Tatula CT would also be contenders for me.

I think you can get any of the Lew's in that price range and be completely satisfied. Lew's has a good reputation and I like their reels. Any of the BB series reels, Lew's Tournament Pro G, Superduty, Superduty Lite, or Superduty Wide should be able to fix you up for that price.

At that price point you can't go wrong among any of the name brands. Performance and durability are there it comes down to the features you prefer.

This exactly. Everyone makes a good reel in that price range, and everyone has their personal preferences in reels. Get to a tackle store so you can play with some of them and decide what one you like best. I have Lew's, Shimano, Okuma, Pinnacle, Daiwa, and Pfluegar. All are nice reels and have their own quirks and qualities.
