I fish primarily for largemouth bass and I get by just fine with Hobbs Creek reels from Bass Pro Shop. They go on special about every other month or so for around $40 bucks. I haven't had any trouble with mine, but mostly it just holds line. I use this reel on an eight weight and on a three weight rod and I like it a lot.
Hope this helps,

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer

If you're talking largemouths, just about anything. Even a big one isn't going to go on any blistering runs. Expect a relatively short slugfest. Given the heavier tippets involved (I use 15.5 lb test), just about any disk drag reel should work fine. The majority of the time, you'll be stripping them in anyway without getting them on the reel.
