A Pflueger in your price range. Size 25. You want the lightest line you can get away with and the slower the reel the better. 30 is too big for this technique.

That's what I like about pflueger.  A 30 is slightly smaller than a 2500 Shimano. The 25 is pretty similar to a 1000.  I've used both for ned but the 30 matches up better with medium and medium light rods.  Retrieve speed can vary depending on the gear ratio.  The supreme is faster than the president for example

Generally true but a size 25 Pflueger on a ML especially with a technique like the Ned is absolutely perfect imo. However almost never use a rod long than 6'9 or 6'10 and my ML Ned rod is 6'6. Used for yaking and wading for river smallmouth.
