Actually for the most part they do have crap, although occasionally a deal may pop up on a quality reel.
I got my Thunnus there for $100, can't beat that deal anywhere
Before you go shopping it would be a good idea to decide what you're shopping for.
I'm going to assume both rods are set up spinning.
Are you looking to fish bait? - with a 12 Ugly Stick I'd say the answer is yes
For the big Ugly Stick I'd get a Shimano 6500 Baitrunner.
For the little rod, obviously something you're going to use for plugging not bait, a Daiwa SS Tournament Whiskar 1600 would be a good choice.
And no, there is no reel that is going to work on both a 12' beast of a rod and a whippy 7'er - not going to happen.
