Alright well since this has turned into quite the debate and I am no where near a decision, I'll narrow it down for you all a little more. I've been inshore fishing my entire life so I won't be bsing around, I will be using this reel frequently targeting all the same fish I normally would target with typical inshore spinning tackle(Snook, Reds, Trout, Small Tarpon) mostly around South Florida. However, I frequently fish from Tampa Bay down to Boca Grande and From Indian River down through the keys. I need a just overall solid inshore reel. Unfortunately I'm a college student so I don't have much more then $250 to burn until I eventually buy a top of the line set-up when I feel it's necessary. Also the Ole Florida Flyshop isn't far from where I live so I'll be swinging by there soon.
