    Default Halibut Spinning Reel Help Needed

    I cant stand level wind reels so i am buying a spinning reel for fishing Halibut, I have it narrowed down to a few. I dont want to spend over 200.00 as i wont be using more than 3-4 days a year. I am thinking of the Shimano 6500B , Penn 950 and the Fin-Nor OFS95 or the Fin-Nor OFS85. What would you buy? Again I have level winders and i cant stand them so it has to be a spinning reel. Thanks for your help!
