Beginner spinning reel?

Hey guys, I've been lurking around here for a couple of months when I decided to buy a license and some gear and I've been abusing the hell out of my uglystick gx2 rod/reel combo.

In fact so much so that my dumb ass actually managed to seize the reel. I tried to not get it too wet, but apparently I did and while I am in the process of disassembling and cleaning it out, I would like to see what you all would recommend as a replacement just in case.

This one's 8lb/110yds and I only fish freshwater at this point, so I don't really need more. This one felt kind of cheap (and actually cracked a couple weeks in) from the get go, so I'm just looking for a decent, affordable replacement within $50.

Can you guys recommend something? Thanks in advance.
