There are some great options in bluewater reels that I recommend:
look at the used/sale reels section at justreels . com
Henschel Ultimode reels (IMHO, the best...I've only used the standard dual-mode and they are the very finest reels I've ever seen, held, used or witnessed)
Hayden Reels-- GREAT reels for the price. Used to have a pursuit4.
Lucktor-Ari Hart... this is Ari's new company and they have some really impressive things
Gilmore reels--- used, but never owned their striper-size reel. Excellent and easily convertible to DD.
