Great Cast Iron Skillet?

skyisred | Feb 27, 201902:55 PM     37

I'm searching for a great cast iron skillet. I have a small Lodge, its alright, but the roughness of the surface annoys me. I've read that smoother skillets develop a better non-stick and are easier to clean. I want it to become my everything-pan.
Hopefully I can find something for up to 150$ for a 12-ish inch. Lighter weight, good capacity (as in pile lots of veggies in there) and convenient handles would be a bonus.
What would you recommend?
PS. I want a new skillet, not enamelled, and I'm not sanding down a Logde:)
