Default Looking for a new reel for a Tica rod.

I've got a 10'6" fast action Tica rod 2-8 oz. I'm looking for some ideas on reel selection. I can afford to just over 100 bucks. Penn seems to be what most people here use. They are a little to pricey for me right now. New anyways.
I fish around alot of rocks and usually use 25lb.

Thanks for any replies.

The Shimano baitrunner is good if you are doing bait.

The Penn 704 - 706Z at 23 ounces is a good reel for that or an 8500. (26 ounces)
The 704 is better for plugs. Although you can toss plugs with the 4500 btr. (22.2 oz)
The surfcaster catalogue has that rod paired with the Tica taurus 6000 (a bit pricey at $199) (22 ounces)
and the sportera 6007 (22.9 ounces) much cheaper retail at $69. 220 yds of 25#

I have a tica libra series reels. Nice and smooth.
Handles braid well but the antireverse spring is an issue with that reel

Now, apparently everyone is assuming this is a SPINNING rod. But, from reading the original post, it doesn't state spinning or casting. So with that in mind...if its spinning, I would go with a Tica Dolphin 10000. I got mine late august last year and fished Fall Drum and Stripers. It casts beautifully and if budget is an issue, they are less that $100. Now, if its casting you're looking for...well I'd have to suggest the Penn 525, you can pick them up new for about 150, however you can seriously look around and get them for close to 100 used and in great condition.....

My fault. It is a spinning rod. Thanks for all the replies.
