I have been doing some gang-boat tyoe fishing in the gulf and need a new reel. I currently us a Penn Longbeach 67 that makes my hand sore from cranking the line in.

Any advice on a good lighter weight fast retrieve real in a 40-60lb class. A lever drag would be nice but not necessary. A dual ratio would also be nice. I prefer to stay under $200.
