I would like to know what is a cheap and good bait caster fishing rod and reel combo?

I am looking for a new fishing rod and reel combo that is good but cheap. I want to get a bait caster because I already have 2 spinners. I want it to be around 50$. I found a great deal on one online at a cabelas store that was great and was only 30$ but shipping and handling was like another 16$. THANK YOU

Anybody ever heard of this fishing reel or know its value?

My boyfriend was helping an elderly lady clean out an old storage building, and while they were loading junk on his truck he stumbled across and old fishing reel. It looks sort of like an old fly reel, and it has a black and gold plate on it that says “Continental Deluxe 351″ I have tried looking it up online, but I can’t find anything about it. The woman gave it to him, but he doesn’t know if it has any value and whether he should hold onto it. Any one have an idea of how old it is and if it is worth anything?
