    How about next time I want to buy something I ask you to find the cheapest one for me?

    Not trying to argue, and not that bothered, but that was my first thought.

    Feel free to ask me anything that has to do with fishing. I may or may not be able to help.

    You're right he may be just too lazy to search himself, or there may be other reasons for his question. Like:

    1. He may not be as experienced as some of us at doing internet searches.
    2. With the advent of the internet there are a lot of "boutique" reel makers out there, maybe there are some on this board that can help find some of those.
    3. Maybe he simply is looking for advice on a quality reel at a low cost from members that have a particular reel.

    I guess it seemed to me that your response was a bit harsh; then again maybe you could say the same about my response to you.

    Maybe you should post a price range. By cheap you mean plastic $25 or a
    Decent reel less than $200?

    I would have to recommend a lamson konic. Cheap and has a smooth drag.

    Konic isn't machined. May or may not matter to some (I have one and like it), but he asked about machined.

    Has anyone in his forum used the Clark reels? Seem real inexpensive for what they are appearing to offer.

    Casey, He asked about inexpensive machined reels and some one else commented that one might "take a look on EBAY at all the machined Chinese reels there". I don't know where or by whom this reel is manufactured...but it is $81.
