I love my Pflueger President.  Very smooth and easy flip action that stops on a dime.  May want to look into the XT model for larger spool capacity.

Iím in the market for a spinning reel for 10-14 pound test line and
Fresh water use. I donít gear fish too often but I have a couple reels I need to replace just in case and Iíve been out of the loop for a while. Probably under $100 or so would be my budget.
Thanks in advance.
I have A LOT of fishing gear as that is my main hobby, I have had tremendously good experiences with Pfleuger President reels, and Penn FierceII for being very good for low cost. I have some of ABU Garcias new REVO X Winch spinning reels and they are phenomenal although they cost almost 3 times as much as the other two I've mentioned.

Another vote for Pflueger President or Shimano Sahara. Iíve had a lot of use out of both for steelhead and salmon in the rivers.

Shimano Sedona, or a Lews. I really like my Lews baitcasters, I bet the Lews Spinning reels are excellent as well.

Will do

I should have added a recommendation, I have been comparing the cs10 with the shimano ci4+ and find the cs10 a great value for the price. Itís been over a year now. No complaints about either. The Diawa BG15 is one that I used for 39 years with no issues itís now in the display case.
Cheers

Okuma and Pflueger have been the best bang for the buck for me

I've been using Shimano exclusively since the late 80's.
The newer reels we have are

Spirex: 5+1 bearings, double handle if you like that, but a lil small for 14lb
Syncopate: 3+1 bearings,  but a lil small for 14lb
Sedona: only 3+1 bearings, but smooth.

The top two have the quickfire system which is why I chose Shimano(still have 2 functioning 80's graphite reels from then) and are used for stream fishing for trout

I'm a big Shimano fan, in my eyes no other brand will have as smooth as a drag as a Shimano. To answer your question I'd look at the naski. its a salt and freshwater rated reel so you can do more with it.

Total Shimano guy here for like 20 years. I have the Stradic, Sedona, Sahara, Spirex, There is no better reel in the line than the Stradic. However those are $200 or more.
Right now they have the Sahara at Sportsman for $79. That would be my go to in the 4000 size for 12-15 pound line. Cant go wrong with a mid to upper level Shimano.
