I just got a Penn 7500lc for 148.00. It should be here by the weekend. I'm putting on an old Fenwick that I'm refinishing . The rod has been in the family for 40 plus years. It might be too small for the reel. It's 11ft.

The Quantum Cabo PT reels have a great drag and should be in your price range I think. The PT60 size would be a good match for that rod.

Power pro sucks(the heavier 80lb and up isn't horrible) I fish my Mojo 10' matched to an Abu 5501, if you go spinning the VS200 balances well on the 10' stick. For line Suffix 832 and Fireline fused Original are the best lines I have tried and I have tried them all.
