Recommendations for saltwater fly reels?

It's time to replace my worn-out (and cheap) Cortland 9 wt. saltwater fly reels. Two of my friends have Lamson reels and love the no-maintenance factor and the sealed drag system. However, the better Lamson models are fairly pricey, especially the ones that weigh the least and have better coatings. I need to buy 2 large arbor reels and at least 2 extra spools for different lines. If I have to, I'm willing to spend the money but wonder if there are better or lighter reels for the same money or less expensive ones that are equal in performance.

For those who flyfish, what reels do you use and recommend? I do all of my fishing from shore if that makes any difference.

So much water, so little time!
