Saltwater eventually ate my Medalist 1498. I did last twenty years. I replaced it with one from Basspro. A TFO Prism 9-11.

You actually have a pretty good selection, and you'll probably hear about every one of them. Just get the best reel you can afford. If you have to include an extra spool in your budget, it's just gonna mean a downgrade in quality. If it were me, I'd check out what Orvis is selling. I've had really good luck with their low-end reels, and their customer service can't be beat.

The larger Gurus are a touch over 200, but they are great reels (very light). The Orvis Access saves you a bit of cash. Haven't used one but love my Battenkill Bar Stock on my 2wt and Mid Arbor for my 8wt. Both companies stand behind their products.
