Advice on spincasters

My 13 yr old son is finally ready for a decent spin caster, what are some good choices in the 100-125 dollar range? I never look at them, been throwing baitcasters since I was his age.

Spinning reel, sorry I didn't realize the other one was called a spincaster.

Try the Lews Mach 1 spinning reel. The reel is only $59.99 and will stand up to the saltwater. You could go ahead and get the matching Mach 1 rod to go with it for $100 for the combo. That is a great combo that won't break the bank. Or just check out the Lews website. They have several spinning reels in the price range you are looking for. www.captmatulafishing.com

My choice in that price range would be the Pflueger President XT. Solid performance/reliability in a pretty light reel for the price.

My Lew's spinning reels have done really well. I was using all Penn spinners and have been buying Lew's as my Penns are dying off. The Lew's spinners are holding up better long term with less issues.

Cabela's has them on sale now for 50 bucks.
I haven't used the XT but have used The President, the regular one, in Saltwater and they hold up well.
I may have to order a couple of XTs.
Nothing last forever in the salt , at least not of the under 75 dollar reels that I use.
I would like to try the Lew's sometime. I may have to get one of those too.

The Shimano Syncopate 2500FG is a great Spinning Reel for beginners. I like it because of the self-centering bail ....and because it's a Shimano. They are very smooth and only cost about $30.

I had to re-teach an old friend with Alzheimer's how to fish last summer and this was the ticket.

I haven't bought a Lew's spinning reel since the SS series because they were nothing but problems for me. First the handle stripped out, then the bearings rusted. I hope they are better now, but I'll stick with my Shimanos.
