Calcutta is best!

I've been fishing a Revo Inshore since the first gen and they are absolutely great for the price. I would highly recommend it for sub $200 budget.

If you're willing to spend a little money I can't tell you enough that the Shimano Exsence DC is the best LP inshore reel I have used. It is specifically made for PE lines and was designed to hold up to saltwater environments. I'm only ordering those from now on :)

Daiwa Ryoga 1016h 2020h and Z2020h are. What I use and they are awesome reels. Others have come and gone but I don't see myself getting rid of these.

My father-in-law has had good experiences with both his Abu Orra 2 Inshores. Much better than his Curado I over the last couple of years. He's very diligent about rinsing and maintenance as well.

My Steez A's have been solid as well.

The Zillion Coastal, But they are getting very hard to find. I also like the blue Tatula Coastal, but they require a handle swap, I can’t stand those giant foam knobs.
