ive been surf fishing for a while now with a spinning setup and now i am looking at purchasing a casting setup, but i dont know what a reel would be best. my limit would be around $150.

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.
