Good reel that won't break the bank.

I'd be looking to overhaul your curado's - likely they just need bearings, perhaps a new drag disc - quite easy to DIY (I do all my own reel repairs/maintenance) plenty of youtube videos to walk you through whatever you need to do. For under $40 you should be able to get them back in new condition (bearings & gears can probably be done for $60) - you're just getting cheap junk in comparison for that price range.

You'll find your reel in there. Prices direct from shimano can be better or worse than above -- but the electronic schematics are much better for picking out part #'s:

Black Max under $50
Silver Max under $60
I highly recommend both.
I've enjoyed both Silver Max reels that I own. Durable, smooth, and a great value.

I needed a replacement for my favorite steelhead reel, bought an Okuma and really like it. Smooth as can be, landed a beauty on the second cast.
