Default Large arbor reels

Does anybody have any recommendations on an affordable large arbor reel in the 9 - 10 WT range?

Thanks

Sean

I've checked out the Allen line of reels- I like them, I've heard 50/50 things about them though

Been looking at these guys too:

Don't know much about them, but the price is pretty sweet for the product your getting.

Had an Echo Ion for a while and had a terrible experience with it, but I guess thats what you get for 80 bucks

Yeah I have one for my 7wt, super smooth retrieve and decent drag, only concern is the drag is not sealed which could cause problems in saltwater applications, not really that aesthetically pleasing, but whatever it works and great price

I own 2 Cabelas RLS reels (6 and 8 wt) and have used them in Colorado, Florida and Texas (salt and fresh) and have never had an issue. I would wade in the salt catching ladyfish, blue runners, spanish macks, and the occasional red fish. That reel would get dunked routinely and it is still doing just fine (8 years later).

Just my .02.
