Jason,I am going spinning said:Lot's of choice and I think there will be numerous combos posted. How about a Sakura Shukan (£130 I think) and a Shimano Exage 4000 i paid £52.99 for mine.
My combo is a Bushwhacker £50 and an Shimano Exage £52.99. That would give you plenty left to buy some nice braid and your first plugs.
Where did you get your Black Star from, very nice looking reel spec wise. I gather they "might" be made by Daiwa. So the quality should be good too.
