Re: Budget Rod/reel options

Like most, I have to defend my $200 Stradics. They're great reels but I've also got a couple of KastKing Sharky II and IIIs that have more bearings, a lot more drag, throw just as far, cost under $50. each and catch just as many fish. Paired with a Shakespeare Ugly Stick or Lew's Speed Stick from Wally World and you've got a great inshore budget combo for around $100. or less.

I know, but I had to do it. :-D

Don't overlook yard/garage and estate sales or pawn shops for quality pre-owned tackle. Some might require some cleaning and/or servicing, but you can find some good buys that way. You could also find some classics that are worth some serious money at bargain prices.

Thank you to all for the excellent advice. Juan, particularly, I have always wondered about the Kast Kings.
