Advice on new spinning combo
   Ive really been getting into fishing the last few years, predominantly for trout and bass. Most of all my gear is inexpensive stuff Ive had for years. My go to spinning rig is really starting to get wore out however.

Im wanting to get a new, budget friendly, spinning combo around or below $100. For this setup I plan on using it mostly for trout fishing in rivers and lakes throwing lures such as Rapalas, spinners and Jakes. But Id probably also use it for bass fishing with Texas rigs and similar rig ups.

Ive been doing a lot of reading online and have found a few different ones Im really considering (again all spinning combos). They are:

Penn Pursuit III

Abu Garcia elite max

Pflueger president

Fenwick Pflueger golden wing

Daiwa revros

Lews Mach smash or Mach II

Shimano Sedona

Id love any input on why youd recommend or avoid any of these. Just having a difficult time making a decision haha. Or feel free to recommend something not on my list. I just want something smooth that will last me many years to come. What do you guys think?
