You can try the new Abu Garcia Soron.  It's designed for braid.  It is based on the Cardinal 800 which was one of the most robust reels on the market.  The Soron replaced the 800.

I have the Abu Soron with 20 pound power pro on it with no mono backing an it works very well. Smooth as silk on the retrieve an the drag is the best i have ever felt. I love this reel so much i bought several.

I would think any quality reel made would be able to handle braid.

was also wondering if the stradic would be good with braid

Sure.

The Stradic 2500FI was awarded ICAST "Best In Class".

The stradic is an absolute beast.  My buddy has the 3000 size on a cumara and it is a dream setup.  I use the 3000 saros which is another great option for a bit less than the stradic.  The way the spools are designed with the beveled lip lets the line come off nice and even every cast.  Get the stradic, you will not regret it.

the ABU soron has two gripper bands on the spool that prevents braid line from slipping.

Daiwa Revros 2004, nope it 's not a domestic model, it 's a japanese model, I paid for the one I 've got 75 dollars, what makes it great ?

The spool, it 's a shallow spool reel ( you don 't need to add filler line ), it 's designed to hold braided line, the spool is grooved ( to avoid slipping ) and has a hole for your knot ( for the knot to stay flush with the spool ), it has extra tough line roller and an extra though lip coating.
