Default Spinning reel for Kings

Im getting married in September so we are trying to come up with some items to add to our registry on Amazon. I currently have 1 rod that needs a reel so I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion on what I should get? I currently pier fish for kings using a Penn 750, and I have no complaints about it whatsoever. I love its simplicity and it seems built pretty solid and handles the fish rather nicely. Was wondering if I should just add another one of those to the arsenal or maybe try something else? Was pondering the Slammer, is that any good? I dont want to get too greedy with the gift list so Id like to keep it $200 or under.. Anyting else I should look at besides a Penn? thanks in advance..

I think the new penn spinnfisher SP should be out around that time and they look like they'll be pretty legit

I caught several kings by accident last week on a $59 Pflueger President 30and a 6ft med action bass rod.... THOSE were some pretty fun battles. EVERYBODY stopped fishing to watch! haha All in the 30-35 inch range. You could ask for 3 or 4 of those... :-)

Yep, wait a little longer and get the new spinfisher V. I'd bet the farm you won't be disappointed. But, if you have to have a new reel before they come out, take a look at a Battle 3000 or 4000. Either of them would make a fine reel fo spanish mackerel, bait reel, or when the schoolie kings are around, it's a blast to catch kings on those little reels. Only about $100.
