Im happy with it.
It depends on what you mean by "inexpensive". For a real good quality, nice looking reel for that rod that will last a long time, resist corrosion well, cast well with mono or braid, that has a good drag & cost less than $100.00 I recommend a Penn Sargus 5000 or 6000. Any reel cheaper than $80-$100 you won't be happy with for very long, it'll give you problems.
My favorite line for the past 10 yrs is Power Pro braided line, but be careful, it can cut you bad it you try to hold it tight & it slides through your hand.
