    LL Bean Quest 2 LA is a great reel with a disc drag. Best part is it is cheap.

    You might be able to get an Orvis LA on sale. I think it's a great reel for the money. You can go with an Orvis Clearwater for $79.00. Though I'm not sure of what kind of drag it has.

    The Clearwater has a nice disc drag system.

    I just bough a Cabelas Prestige premire on sale for half off at fifty bucks and the drag was either made by Lamson or Cabelas is going to get sued. Its a nice reel. I haven't had a chance to fish it yet. It is darn smooth and the drag will crank down to full stop. The model I got will take 200 yds of 20# with WF8F. They make smaller models as well.

    Or for right at $150 you could get get an Allen Axis three.
