Default Any recommendations for an affordable steelhead reel?

I'm in the market for an affordable steelhead reel - in the $100 range if such a thing exists. I recently purchased a Redington CD 7/8 wt at a great price (~$70) but based upon some of the feedback that I have read on this site as well as others I'm considering sending it back. The reel was recommended over the Lamson Radius by the e-tailer even though the Lamson was a little more expensive.

Anyway, I'll be using the reel for winter steelheading and would like to find a reel that will serve me well for years to come. There are lots of options in the market today - some manufactureres with US and Asian made products.

Any input provided would be appreciated. Thanks!
