I got a Shimano Sedona in the spring and have been using it exclusively this year for spinning. It is a great reel. For $60 I don't think it can be beat. I have heard the president is a great reels, but I cant tell you much because I have never used one.

I'm tempted to try out Doug Hannons Wave Spin reels. I've seen the videos on them and it looks as if you don't get birds nests line twist problems from them. They have a 2 year unconditional warranty and they come with a nice spinning reel cover that goes over the reel while it's on the rod. I have heard a lot of good info about the wave spins.

Rod will balance with an Abu Garcia Soron, this is what they were designed for and its what I would use. I have several Abu spinning reels and never a problem. It would cost about $100, a little more than your budget. If the money is too much you could get a 600 series Abu for $80. They sell them factory reconditioned on Pure Fishings outlet at ffo-tackle. com for less than $50. A great combo for under $100, good luck and great fishing.

might be a little light for bigger fish. a 2500 series might be a better pick.

You'll be fine w/ the 1000 series reel.  The deal with the bigger reels is with spool diameter, and less snarl with fluoro line.  For light line, you'll be fine.

I think you will be fine with the Sahara 1000 as well. I have one on a 7' ML Cabelas XML rod with Spiderwire 20 = 6 and haven't had a problem with it at all. Great Reel for the money.
