Default Fly Reel for a 4wt

I just got an unused 4wt, 8-ft St. Croix Avid for panfish (or a decent backup to my 5wt Imperial). I'm looking for an inexpensive reel. I've been eyeballing these:

Bass Pro Hobbs Creek Large Arbor - 39.99

Martin Mountain Brooke Large Arbor - 27.50

I don't want to spend alot of money as I don't have alot of discretionary funds. My thought is that, for panfishing, it just holds the line. If I run into anything that will really give me a battle, I'll handle it the best way I can. As for a backup for the Imperial, in the areas where I fish for trout, the max is usually 5lb rainbows. Haven't hooked into the browns or brookies yet in this particular place.
