Daiwa Legalis LT Freshwater Spinning Reel
$48.99
[academy.com]

It is not the newest 2021 model. These reels on sale were first introduced in 2018. They are EXCELLENT reels.

The title says Freshwater but it can be used for Saltwater fishing.

Very light - Weighs 7.2 ounces (25); 7.5 ounces (30); 8.4 ounces (40). But it has ton of drag. Again the numbering is confusing but they mean 2500, 3000, 4000 respectively.

Only 3000 and 4000 are available, no 2500.

Store pickup available depending on your location.

Shipping is FREE over $25 order.

From amazon review: Great mid-price reel and usually a good price on Amazon. Not overly built like my Diawa BG, but much lighter for all day fishing. I have been using them for bass tournaments, smooth drag and nice line lay with braid.

Was honestly hoping to find this under 40 since the 2021 has a few changes and this one is essentially being discontinued. Then again the older model inventory is low overall everywhere else.

Quote from metro1288 :
Any issues using this in saltwater if I rinse it down after every use?
Usually when you see a mention of freshwater the implication is it'll rust over time, even with rinsing.

Now, is that a problem for a reel at this price range? I don't think you're going in expecting ten years out of it.

Define moderately priced? I'd think something like an ugly stik elite or one of the house brands at Bass Pro/Cabelas would be a good budget option to pair with one of these.

If you wanted to step up a price bracket, you really can't go wrong with a St. Croix in my experience.

This is not a fly fishing reel. That said, though it's frowned upon you can certainly tie on a fly and fish it on spinning gear

Thank you. Was wanting to try getting into fly fishing for the first time. Honestly, I've fished with a normal rod and reel a handful of times so was curious what makes a fly fishing reel strictly for that type of fishing. thanks again.

I just got the 2500 reel in Panama City Beach during my vacation (although I bought it for $70) after I forgot my saltwater reel at home. It's super smooth and worked great during the pier fishing times. I also washed it off with freshwater once done.

I would definitely get one if you're in the market- it's super smooth and the gear ratio was great when reeling such a long distance up from the pier.

If I wouldn't get yelled at by my wife, I'd buy a couple more.

Yea, fly fishing is a different beast all together. The big difference with fly fishing is that you're relying on the weighted line to deliver/present your fly as opposed to spinning/baitcasting/traditional gear where you typically are adding sinkers/weight to the line separately. Fly fishing tends to be more 'finesse' by nature, not to say you can't finesse fish with regular spinning gear (this would just involve using lighter weight setups, light weights, etc).
I will say that learning how to fly fish is much more 'multi-dimensional' compared to conventional/normal/regular fishing. It's a completely different set of gear and probably the most important thing you'll need to learn is how to cast and line management. It gets into other things too, like choosing flies/patterns and eventually tying your own flies. It's one of those hobbies that gets expensive really quickly depending on how far you want to dive in... and it's not easy to find yourself in the deep end of the pool with it. It is a lot of fun though. Perhaps consider looking to drop-in on a local fly fishing/fly casting club meetup in your area, if one exists.

Hate 6lb test. It's not for the fish size either, it's the breaking strength of the line when compared to vegitation!
