If you have not done so, line them up, and fish the snot out of them. Let us know how they work. The 3-5 weight model can't be that bad especially since it will most likely be a line holder.

Sorry. I just learned about Topflite reels from this thread. As for sub $100 reels, check out the selections from Orvis and Redington. Usually my first choice for a lower price pointed 8 weight reel is a Lamson Konic 3.5. It cost more than what you want, but sometimes you can snipe one from eBay under $100.

Jim already gave a good response about oil.
