Maybe you can state your budget so people will know what they can offer you. I know Changi Pro, Hong Guan, Siow Chiang and Joe sells budget reels, so do check them out.

Check HLF website, under Tackle Directory :p

Perhaps you could tell us the purpose of the reel you at using then we could advise you accordingly.

As for the tackle closed down perhaps you should pm Peace to inform about the shop it does help the next person looking at the directory.


Cheers

Would suggest you drop by the tackle shop and let them know your requirement and they will recommend you the right type of reel. With your budget you set will get you a reasonable reel. I would suggest you bring your rod down to the tackle shops to match the reels.

I won't be able to tell you exactly what you want cos my recommendations will burn a big black hole in your pocket....
