The Best Spinning Reel Under $100

The best spinning reel starting under $100

The Daiwa BG is the finest reel make in the $100 to $150 range.  The drag is one of the smoothest around.  It has CNC machined housing and gears so everything will stay lined up under stress.  Although it is not sealed the parts fit together well enough to prevent most water intrusion.  The action is also very smooth.  The only downside I’ve heard of is the bail roller is prone to rust so keep it oiled.
