My price range is approx $100.00. Thank you Magnum Lure and FDB for the replies.  

I want to be able to measure how much line I have out when using planner boards for walleye and lake trout.

I've used the Daiwa Accudepth 47LC reels for kings.  They work ok.  The 27LC size should be plenty for walleye fishing.  The will drop the price below $100/reel.  These reels would only work for trolling and would be difficult to cast.

Okuma cold water reels are hard to beat for the price.

Okuma has a low profile line counter reel that looks pretty sweet.  If you're near Grand Rapids the Outdoorsmen Pro Shop in Jenison has a good selection of anything you could want.  And even some things you don't want, but can't live without! lol

Thank you every one for your input. I live in Western  Canada so there is not much selection! I want a dependable reel,  not one picked out by a box store buyer motivated by bonus and price point.

it really doesn't matter where it comes from because they send these reel out to suppliers, so they all get the same product. i used the old sealine sg17lca for yrs. but they were too old for tuna tom to repair them. i also am using the sealine sg17lc3b reels which are working great. but I had heard so much about the cold waters that when I replaced the old lca reels I got the cold water 203. if you do any salmon fishing, I would recommend a larger reel. I have people with small hands so i use small reels for walleye fishing.

 

the Daiwa sglc3 reels are good reels that catches a lot of eyes. I have only used the cold water reels one time. they are so much smoother than the Daiwa reels and I believe they have a much smoother drag on them. only time will tell how long they will last. either one of these reels will do the job but when I replace the daiwa sglc3b reels it will be with the cold waters if the ones I have are still good.

 

this late in the season I would watch for sales. when I bought mine I kept going to eBay and Amazon checking prices and got mine for 96.00 each on eBay.
