    Can I suggest you buy a spinning reel and likely pick the Ryojin.

    An important part is:

    1/ What do you want to use the reel for? 

    2/ What's your budget? Under SGD$200?

    Get a spinning reel, load it with 10lb for starters, get a 20lb leader and start from there.

    What kind of fishing do you do and what rod are you pairing wz.
    These also determine the size of the reel.

    BTW, more BB does not mean better cause the overall quality of the reel is more important.

    Yeah, that's a good point by @SportAngler, more ball bearings does not equate to a better reel.

    I am using a Shimano Stradic 1000 for my daily reel now and it's lower down the quality scale.

    The number of bearings won't mean a thing if they are not of high quality makes.  Getting a good reel, has many factors.

    Drag strength
    Body construction (also the strength of the body)
    Gear ratio
    Line capacity

    All these play their part and you need to balance out how much you'd want to spend vs the mix of these qualities you are getting out of the reel.
