My main setups, details in the comments
7’6” M St.Croix Avid Inshore / Shimano Stradic 3000FL: smaller baits for peacock bass, inshore snook and it’s my primary surf snook setup. 7’ MH Star VPR / Stradic 4000FL: main surf/inshore snook setup for lures around an ounce as well as skipping docks and mangroves.
Best Reel on the market
They are just an example of supreme engineering. The Daiwa Exist LT is also a dream of a reel, and in some ways it is even more refined than the Stella, but I personally find Shimano's have the edge for durability. For a more sensible budget then it is between the Shimano Vanford (carbon body) or the Shimano Stradic FL (Aluminium body). I have a 12 year old Stradic which is still smooth, they really are impossible to beat for the money.

Spinning reel
You could probably find a Stradic FL for that price. I have a Vanford as well as a Stradic CI4+, they're nice but the best thing about them is the weight. They pair beat with light rods. The Tatula LT is supposed to be very good as well.

Shimano Stradic FL Review with Carl Jocumsen
We're talking spin reels and this right here is the latest of the hard-working stratic lineup. This is the Fl series and I have put it through hell and back right through the 2020 season and I'm absolutely in love with it. So all of the the great features that Shimano are known for: hagane body so we've got that toughness

Best spinning reel under $200?
Shimano Stradic gets my vote. Lots of good cheaper options as well.

Shimano Stradic FL Spinning Reel Review: Pros, Cons, & Overall Rating
but again, not too big of an issue because it can be fixed on your own. You don't have to send the reel back or anything like that. So simple fix just by retreating those drag washers if you do have a sticky drag on your FL Now this drag is also pretty lightweight compared to other reels in its class
