Give it a Google and one link I found had lots of them listed. Part that made me do a Woozer is the things (size/maker dependent I supposed) was they ran from $200.00 to $1,000!

Hi Duck,

About the most affordable and quality built AR reel I know of are the old Orvis DXR Anti Reverse, they are available in various sizes and come for sale on the e-auction site frequently. I have had 2 of these over the years but sold both.

Why not look to a reel with a good strong drag and exposed rim instead of anti reverse? I understand the idea of not getting whacked in the fingers with a spinning spool handle but............ I found the DXR to have a few more things that needed tinkered with than I preferred. For a 9 weight rod many of the current production reels would give you good drag control and you will just have to remember to keep the fingers & knuckles clear when a fish takes line fast.

here is a good deal:
On the Bay in germany(ebay.de), look for stenzel mogul

no i do not know the seller, just like the brand. about as bomb proof as they come; it has cork plates on both sides of the spool and has bushings rather than ball bearings (that can rust)

another choice could be the orvis SSS 9/10 if you can find one of those old friends:
here are a few i own:
