What do you consider cheap? If I could find one in the size I wanted, my first choice would be clearance Orvis Battenkill Barstocks, they have the III for $80. Their new version of the Click and Pawl BBS is $98 and it is a nice looking reel. Cheapest ones I know of is from the Angler's Roost, 100 and 200 series. Run around $50 +/- depending on the model. I have one, as does my wife and dad. Only issue I found is that switching the retrieve is more complex that other reels I have.

That's right, I forgot they had one for under 100. Used my Trout reel this past week and it's a great reel.

The LL Bean Pocket Water reel is the cheapest I can think of,

but really, why should we do the shopping for you?

I never saw anything close to him asking for anyone to "shop" for him.

Amazon and eBay are littered with no name machined reels from China on the cheap... if cheap is the only priority then it may be worth a look. As always, though, caveat emptor.
