Martin reels

Does anyone have experience with these reels? I'm looking at the mohawk river, it looks like a pretty good reel for $50-60. The other one I'm looking at is the Okuma in the same price range, I'm not sure of the model it might be the magnitude. Any opinions on either of these reels would be appreciated.

Thanks

Short term solutions, IMHO. Twice the price could last you 5 times longer, three times the price 10 times longer, and some reels will outlive you and pass down for generations. However to get into something for short $ it's an option.

Juro,
I know what you mean, I'm just trying to find a happy medium. There is some point on the curve where the price will go up a lot faster then the quality, it's just where that point is. The other reel I liked the looks of is the Trion. I also forgot to mention this is for a 5 wt. rod
What other reels would you recommend?

thanks
