entry level baitcaster?

what would be a good entry level reel for wadefishing? I don't want to sink 300 in a rod and reel, I'm hearing that the shimano cruxis is a pretty decent setup. Looking through the academy website , they dont have it but they do have a couple of other shimano reels for under 100$ I'm open for y'alls opinions
thanx Tim

Search H2O Mettle, Academy, I've seen many in here recommend it. Around $50.

I bought a couple of the Cruxis a few years ago. They rarely get used but they seem to be decent reels. They definitely will no cast as far or be as smooth as the $300 reels but work fairly well. If I was buying a bait caster just for live bait I'd get a Abu Garcia 5500. I own a few of these I keep at the lake for catfishing and stuff and they are bulletproof. Relatively cheap, simple to work on, and last forever. Just my opinion. I have also heard that the Mettle is the best cheap reel there is. I'm planning on getting one to try if I can ever find one in stock. Academy cant keep them on the shelf.lol
