I've had tremendous experience with 
Shimano's, Austin. But there are some
very good reels from Pflueger, Okuma,
Daiwa and others you could look at.

If you can get into a Bass Pro, or other
store, get your hands on a bunch of 
them and see what fits your hands best,
and feels good to you.

I'm with Darren on this one. For budget reels, shimano has always been the best for me. I have a Sienna 1000 size that is super smooth and problem free along with some other even lower end shimanos that are great. Right now you can get the Sienna for under $35 and spend the rest of your budget on some nice braid!

I would look for deals on a pflueger president. Normal retail $60 but can be found for $45-50 at times.  Best reel dor money out there. Period.

I have two spinning reels on my boat. 

A Pflueger Trion TR30............$39.99

And a Pflueger President 6930...........$59.99

Both are fantastic reels for the $$

wow i cant believe no one said anything about lews.  Ive been fishing lews reels now for about 8 years and wouldn't consider buying anything else.  i haven't had a single problem with them yet and none of my spinning reels are over 80.  im sure if u dont need it today and can wait and post in classifieds you might even find a nicer(higher end model) for a reasonable price

I have several spinning reels. I have Lew's, several Shimanos, Mitchell, and Pflueger. FOR THE MONEY Pflueger is the best buy. I primarily use bait casting reels, but I would reach for the Pflueger as quickly as any spinning reel in my arsenal. The Shimano Saros is the highest end spinning reel at around 150 or so, so I don't have the higher end Shimano reels, but that is not the price range the OP was shopping in, anyway.

My Pflueger President is an amazing workhorse that delivers trouble free fishing ... if mine was stolen, I'd buy another tomorrow.

Another vote for the Pflueger President, you can get a 6930 size on Jet.com for $43 when you use the "triple15" code to get the extra 15% off and it's free shipping. I also have a Lew's Carbonfire size 30 HS reel and like it very much...got that at Dicks Sporting Goods on clearance for $25 but the new model that replaced it is selling new for $49.99. Either of those reels would work well for you.

I fish Lew's baitcasters and Shimano spinning reels.  My wife has a. Pflueger Supreme XT and my daughter has a President.  In your price range, I'd take a serious look at the President. It may not be as refined as the Supreme XT or my Shimanos, but it will get the job done and put a smile on your face.
