I love American made, English made (Hardy & earlier CFO's) and now I'm very impressed with Vosseler reels (German engineering). Very price competitve. Vosseler Reels | Flyreels for flyfishing with drive
You can get large arbors, traditional rim control reels, saltwater etc. I wouldn't be suprised if I (we) end up with more than one.
If you like the traditional rim control the RC series goes from about $125-$145
