Shimano Stradic 2500 would be my first choice. For a little more, the new Daiwa ballistic is REALLY nice. Otherwise, I'd look at a Abu Garcia Revo Stx if you don't like Shimanos or Daiwas. For about $150, the Shimano Ultegra is really nice too.

 

In regards to size, stick with a 2500 if you're throwing 6-10lb mono line or 6-8lb flourocarbon. For braid, a 2500 handles everything up to 15lb nicely.

for my freshwater setup and to save a little $$$ i got an shimano ultegra c3000   plenty of reel...it is smoother than my 2500 stradic  and about 149 each 15 lb braid or 8lb mono.....cant beat the smoothness of a Shimano

The Cabelas store brand Verano reel is the same as the prior generation Diawa Ballistic. It often goes on sale for  any where from $79-$111. The regular price is $150 and when it goes on sale it’s an awsome deal. 

 

I have Diawa Ballistics, Shimano stradics(although the ci4 is above your price range) and the Cabelas Verano and can recommend any of them.

I'd hang out for a bit until some of the new daiwa products get some "chatter"

 

Shipwreck is gonna let me play with em'  so I can get an idea how they compare.  

 

They look very promising.

Pflueger president 6930 or 6935 on sale for $39 now.   92% stradic for 20% the price.   

 

You mean that they are both spinning reels and they both hold fishing lines?

Yeah, I know.  Forget I typed that.  The stradic will definitely catch you a lot more fish.

I purchased a few Canyon spinning reels . Theiir Model 2000 would be more than enough feel,for ur use , I'm very pleased with 4 I own two seasons on em no issues ! They are light weight , drags no issues , handles good sized , plenty of drag & capacity ! There serviced out of NJ  & I believe the warehouse is there as well ! Used for  tog jig , Albies , Stripers etc . I own two sizes 2000 & 3500 .
