All Around Catfish Spinning Reel?

Forums
So I bought a Hog Seeker combo (http://www.basspro.com/Zebco-Hawg-Seeker-Spinning-Rod-and-Reel-Combos/product/96647/) and broke the reel with my clumsiness. The rod is MH. It's big and strong. I want an all around reel that can do channel or blue cat. Flathead is probably asking too much. I don't know. I don't want to spend more than 80 bucks. Any advice?

Have you looked at the wavespin? Its a low cost, high performance reel developed by Doug Hannon a couple of years before he left us. Has a great drag, and a fantastic guarantee. I have 2 of the 4000 series that will handle anything I can get into the boat, both with 65 lb braid. Also a 1500 with 20 lb braid that is the monster of small spinners.
BPS carries some or go to their website for detailed description
