Q:
Ok guys, Im looking for a new spinning reel. With the rod I will be putting it on, I fish mostly topwater plugs (poppers, walkers), crankbaits, jerkbaits, and plastics. I will spool it with 20 lb braid and have mono or flouro leaders depending on the application. I want it to have a good amount of line capacity, a mid range speed (approx 5.5:1) so I can fish slowly but still be able to rip it if need be, and decent price around $100 or less. Any good suggestions?

Take a look at the Shimano Sedona, I used to have one until I gave it to a friend. Worked good in lots of applications. 60 bucks on bass pro website.

Yep Shimano Sedona or a Pflugar President series. There are better ones, but these are rock solid (I have 1 of each).

I would only go with a spinning reel that has extra and interchangeable spools. I think both of these come with extra spools and you can buy additional spools, That way you can change line sizes and types in a heart beat.

The Penn Battle spinning reels are right in your price range.

I really like the Plueger President that Rockysquirrel mentioned. I have switched over from Shimano during the last five years mostly because I think the Pfluegers are smoother and so far have been more durable.

I have had my best results with the Johnny Morris signature series JM20 and JM40. Both have large diameter spools and hold up well under the fishing conditions around salt water where my wife uses them. I use mostly baitcast reels myself, but work on all brands and type of reels as a hobby.
