They're not in the same ballpark as those new VS (not even the same state I don't think) but I figured I'd mention that the Dick's by the Hamilton Mall has a rack of Okuma Stratus ST50s on sale at $39.95...Not sure exactly what the deal is, I assume they're a discontinued freshwater item, as I haven't been able to find much info on them and
they appear to be not exactly built for the salt. The one I bought a year ago and slapped on an 8'6" Ugly stick has worked like a champ with treatment bordering on criminal neglect. Last week I got two of them, for banging around bridge rocks, and slopping around sod banks...for the price I'm about to grab two more :D Figured if anyone had a use for cheap, un-high-end type spinning reel I'd give the heads up.

Ha speaking of Daiwa...the other day I unearthed an ancient surf casting sized Daiwa spinning reel...I have three old 7500Cs in my posession and I guard'em like they're made of platinum...just some no joke strong pieces of older 70s equipment, all on equally old glass "eight'n bait" type rods. This one I found in the basement is older than those, works like new...I might spool it with some 20 lb Ande and use it on a severely stout boat rod...either than or mount it on a slab of cherry wood and hang it on the wall :D
