Btw there is a Revo Premier PRM40 on evilbay that will probably end around your price range of $100. If you want to take a chance at a discontinued reel and find you like lighter reels then I recommend that one particular item.
I also have Stradics and Tatulas, but they are much more expensive reels. For my kayak, I like keeping the price point low because they are going to get saltwater on/in them, and I will have to rebuild them (which is not really that hard once you do it a few times). I lost two Revo Inshore reels in two trips due to safety related incidents on the water, that's why I switched to cheaper reels on the yak.
That said, the Daiwa BG gets amazing reviews, and is also at your price point. I haven't played with the less expensive Shimanos.
If you're going with live bait and not worried about size as much, I'd probably try to bump up to a 2500 size Penn Spinfisher VI because they do have some sealing going on, and they can take saltwater a little more than the others it would seem, though I haven't been inside the Accurist, I have seen the inside of a Spinfisher VI and a Daiwa BG. The Spinfisher VI is a bit more expensive. I'm seeing them for $140. They are not light reels at 10+ oz. I prefer a lighter reel for the amount of casting and jigging I'm doing fishing for redfish, speckled trout and flounder.
EDIT: * Tonight I was replacing the rotor on one of my PT Iron 25s and found a nasty surprise. The magnets within the bail mechanism have lost some of their coating and are covered in a fine powder of rust. I was replacing the rotor because I ham-fistedly stripped screws that hold the main shaft support/rotor nut in the first one. Now, I'd say this is an oddity, but I just threw away an old Quantum Energy baitcaster that had magnets that disintegrated over time. So, I'm about $500 in to Quantum spinners between the two PT Iron 25s, maintenance parts, and the S3 Inshore 40. They do not all have magnetic bails as I first believed.** The Smoke S3 Inshore has a heavily greased spring, phew. because I went and opened up my other PT Iron 25 and it has the same rust problem.
So, now I can see why they discontinued the PT Iron 25, but honestly it seems like I should get my money back. That magnet design is crap; it's a plain flaw in a reel that was truly a good reel that caught a ton of redfish. I'm retiring them both. The Quantum Accurist Inshore is marketed for saltwater directly, and appears to be similar to the Smoke Inshore with less bearings and I'm not sure what else. If it has a magnetic bail, I would not recommend it, but otherwise, I'd make a tentative recommendation on the quality the Smoke S3 has brought to the table. Wow, I really didn't know I was fishing with time bombs - and I'm a little upset that I purchased a new spool at this point as, with the way I fish those reels - in saltwater, in a kayak, I don't think that I'll ever finish having to replace rotors and bail arms. Well, you win some you lose some.
