B Atitudes recommendation is solid. To that I would add the 700 which is slightly beefier ( the best Striper,Blues, Black reel around. I took a 40lb YFT on that reel with 50lb Power Pro. Slightly more money But i got mine at Sports Authority on a holiday sale for about 200 with tax. My other recommendation is the Penn 975 with levelwind (they have 3 versions out now with LW, w/o LW, and a new one witha regular drag) in any event this is a fine reel for Stripers and Blues and is a few ounces lighter than the others and would work great for fluke and flounder. You dont mention anything about rods. Do you have one and need a new reel or are you purchasing that as well. From your post It sounds like you want one reel for all your inshore needs. If thats the case try to find a rod you like, perhaps a 6'6 medium weight and put the reels on. Does it feel balanced is it comfortable etc...
