Old Florida makes a very good reel. I looked at them this past winter. I found several of them on ebay that were quite reasonable. I was looking for something that would hold 11-12 wt lines, old florida, lamson, islander, bauer all seemed to be in my price range, when looking at the used/good condition market. Like alot of the reels, you need to maintain the cork drag. I ended up getting a used bauer, but would have had no problems with an old florida.
Good luck.
