Chris I`m sure if you provide a bit more info you will get some suggestions..Are you talking about throwing bait or plugs,,how heavy will the bait or plugs be you are throwing? etc...

If you're going to chuck lures then a levelwind seems appropriate. You may want to look into one of the Abu 6500 series reels.
