@slothparade- great advice and agree completely, but not for total price of $300.

I well remember my dad quoting me  “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

Thanks. Take a look at the 2020 saltist hyper, $230. 

Id say just wait for some sales 

If you want a bit cheaper you can go the saltist blue water around the $120 mark. 

If you don't mind second hand, take a look at a saltist Nero or a bait runner oc for a reel and just wait around and a very cheap saltist hyper will come. Seems them for $150. Will be $250 in total
