I need a better reel but don't want to spend over $120. I was looking at the Orvis Battenkill 2 but saw a different one at the shop the other day. Any suggestions?

Go to the Cabela's on-line catalog. They have a bunch of nice reels in your price range. Here is a nice reel on sale for $20.00. For most of the trout fishing you will be doing in PA this reel will meet your needs. It has good line capacity, isn't too heavy, and has a modern disc drag.

I like to look through craigslist. You can find some really good deals on reels that would normally be out of your price range.
BUT if you said I only have $189 to spend I have some pretty good suggestions.
