Hard to beat the TLD's. Avet EX series are very nice reels, between $320-$350.

You mentioned dolphin, kings, tuna, marlin...that's a pretty wide rage of fishing. Some people might argue that king fishing is in and of itself a separate catagory needing a high speed retrieve (eg- shimano trinidad). Dolphin fishing is the least demanding- you could use most any setup. Marlin fishing depends on what you're looking for...eg-white marlin less demanding, blue marlin requiring big stuff. Same applies for tuna- yellow fin- you could use a good 30 or 50 reel. BFT is another story requiring much heavier gear. Having said all that, I would go with an Avet 2 speed 4.0 for all around function-around $350.

Why not a TLD20II?
To quote Tony the Tiger, "The'rrrrrrrrrrreeeee Greaaaat!"

Big fish just fold when you kick in that low gear.
