Didn't seem like such a steal to me.

You'll never go wrong with a Shilton, Some guys wont buy it because its not expensive enough <link removed>

I second that. Great barstock reel, GREAT drag system, no one except TFO has a better warranty

Do you already have a top quality line on the rod? If not, take some of the money you were going to spend on a reel and invest it in the line.
Cabela's has a really nice super large arbor reel. Haven't tried it out but the design is really cool and their products are always good quality.

Tioga is a great buy for the price (under 200), sealed with no exposed moving parts and virtually indestructible.

Welcome to the Forum!
Under $200, Freshwater reel for 5wt... lots of great choices! Almost down to preference.
Bauer Junior Mac 1 - 5wt line, $200 and what a good looking reel.
Ross Rhythm - just over at $210.

Advice on low-mid price reel
Hi there ~
This is my first post here . . . cool site!
I have been fly fishing for quite a few years, I wouldn't say I'm good by y'alls standards, but I can find my way around a stream on a good day
I have a 5 weight Sage DS2 & have been using an OLD System 1 456 reel for years. Its kinda noisy, but its done it's job.
Well the System one is ready to retire & I want to get a new reel, but I want to try to keep it under $200.
I would love to get some input on the subject.
Thanks a bunch
