    Count me as an Avet fan. I have an SXJ, SX, and MXJ. The best thing about them is that they are very easy to service and Avet sells every part of the reel. I just replaced every bearing and the spool in my SX for $60.

    Avet SXJ (fits your price range). I used mine on a Shimano TVSC63ML rod.
    Over the winter I switched reels, this year I'll be using an Accurate BV300 (black).

    I am getting the rod that you have , I am one that has to hold the rod match with a reel that I own and make a judgement. I have some points on my charge and a gift card that's burning a hole in my wallet . I was thinking of the lighter version of the rod . But I will decide soon. Prob at the Saltwater show this week. I like my Calcutta's but may go with a low profile . Anyway I have time before the fluke arrive. I want it for back bay with light jigs rarely over 2 oz. I will use a St Croix and a Calcutta 400 for out front . If I have to go over 6 oz. I change to a heavier rod .If I have to go over 10 oz. I go home or inside. So how do you like the rod ?

    Looks like I am gona go with the Shimano Curado I and it looks like Cabela's has it on sale this week for $30 off. My remaining question is the gear ratio as it comes in 5.5 to 1, 6.3 to 1 and 7.2 to 1. Seeing that the reel will be used mostly in less than 80' of water I should be thinking about the lower gear ratio but I figured I would ask the barn. what ya all say about the preferred gear ration for bouncing 2-3oz bucktails for Mr. Flatty?

    I think that the higher ratios are more for casting and retrieving purposes, but i could be wrong
    Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

    Shimano Cuarado I 6.3:1 for $150 was the final choice. Gona load it up with some super slick 10 lbs. braid and wait for the flatty season to commence.

    Next week -- hitting the river for the striper run...................dam what a longggggg off season it has been.

    Tight line and thanks to those who provided recommendations.
