Default Large arbor for 10wt?

I am looking around at some reels for a 10wt rod. Everything I have now is Orvis but there are some other interesting options out there.

I want to have a strong set up that will take bigger fish without failing. That having been said, I also don't want to break the bank either.

Some of the reels I've looked at are Aleka, Ross, TFO, Sage, and some others. Where are they made? Are there any other options you would recommend? Are there any you would NOT recommend? The Alekas seem to have the more traditional cork friction disks, are those any good or are the modern methods a lot better? Does anyone know where the Orvis Hydros is made?
