For conventional go for the Penn 525 Mag.
I've got two of them love them. It's rare I get a
backlash. Very easy to use.

ABU

My first reel was an Abu 6500 CTC3 Mag Elite. One thing that I don't like about the reel, it's a slider ( mag control slides ) instead of using a knob. Your hand can accidently hit the slide and knock the magnet settings. I also have a pair of blue yonders that were sent to England to be converted.
