Cabela's has Pflueger Purist Spinning reel for sale at 50% off, $40 each, in store pick up is free, or use coupon code 17FREE for free shipping $50 and up. The Purist reel is considered a step up of its popular President reel as Purist has 9+1 sealed stainless steel ball bearings that make it suitable for saltwater use. Its 30 model is an all around size for freshwater bass fishing perfectly for ML and M action rods and 35 for M to MH; both OK for light tackle inshore fishing, whereas 40 size a great M to MH inshore reel. As a matter of fact, Purist has been recently rated as 2017 top five inshore reel under $100 by Salted Angler (https://saltedangler.com/spinning...under-100/) and the 50% discount price will certainly make it the best inshore reel under $50.

depends on what your fishing for. I'd recommend a Shakespeare Ugly Stik GX2 or elite spinning rod. For bass I personally like the 6'6 or 7' medium light or medium action.

Definitely a great multipurpose pole that will survive a beating. Shimano has some decent cheap rods as well, but generally if I'm spending under 75$ on a pole I'm going with an ugly stik.

Fisherman's Factory Outlet FFO's Amazon store front happen to have a Berkeley Inshore 6'6" Medium Light spinning rod for half price, $30 + $8 shipping, if you buy over $50 free shipping, too (search on Amazon by yourself please), which would be a perfect match to the 30x sized purist both for fresh and saltwater. FFO is Pure Fishing's factory Outlet. Pure Fishing owns brands including Berkeley, Pflueger, Penn, Abu Garcia etc.

Is this really suited for saltwater? I read that it has some sealed components, but that doesn't always been suitable for saltwater.

If you are looking for a saltwater reel on a budget, the Penn Pursuit is a great option or for some more the Diawa BG is a great buy.

I've got 3 Cabelas Pro Guide spinning rods and they are excellent. They go on sale from time to time. I've got 2 6' 6" Medium, and 1 6' 6" ML. I use them for everything from bass to to lake trout to perch. The GX2 were a bit too hefty/unfeeling for my preference, but I do have a nice 4' 8" GX2 UL that is great for panfish.

Calico Jack rods are one of the best value rods out there. Their replacement warranty is also very simple (cut a tiny piece of the rod, send it in an envelope with $10 and they send you a new rod). You can usually find them for around $50-$60. I have caught some fairly big sharks on their MH with nary an issue. We fish nearly every week in an inshore salt environment.

This reel falls into the cheap category and I wouldn't recommend it for salt or bigger fish applications. Given Alan Hawk's recent review of Daiwa BG, that is pretty much the only sub $100 reel I would buy these days as I hate losing big snook and reds to faulty gear.

I don't know how true that is anymore. I have a buddy that brought his in the other day and they wouldn't exchange, they would only give a percent off the new one.

Funny you should mention that. I have both the M and MH calico jack rods and they are awesome. The M is paired with a Daiwa BG 2500 for small inshore fish (flounder, snapper blues, Croaker's, kingfish). The MH is paired with a Tsunami Shield 4000 for similar fish just different rigging.

My BG2500 also does double duty for freshwater bass. It's an awesome reel for the price. I think I like it more than my Penn SSV's.

Haven't done any ocean fishing for a few years, went out last week on a party boat for rock cod and my 20 years old Penn Jigmaster finally gave out (bearing stuck?) after I hooked a 6 lbs rock cod. Don't want to spent two three hundreds for another conventional reel, anyone can recommend one for ~$100?

I would recommend the ugly stick as well. They are cheap and almost impossible to break

You can find Penn squalls on eBay new for under $100.

Or just get yourself another (used) jigmaster, senator, squidder, the list goes on and on.
