    best cheap ultra light 7' spinning rod

    I'm looking for another ultralight or light action 7' spinning rod to take on a trip for bluegill/crappie. Don't really want to spend more than 50. Never been a fan of bps micro lights. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    I bought 4 7.5 footers from Bass Pro last spring sometime (March maybe) they were marked way down to 30 bucks a combo and I used the crap out of them bluegill/crappie fishing and they have been good so far. They are bass pro brand.

    A second vote for the Okuma. Very light and great action. I also love my Carbolite Peregrine. Another $25 rod that seems to find it's way into my hand a lot.

    Dicks runs some great sales at Christmas time. I picked up three 7 ft All Star spinning rods a few years back for half price in the range your willing to spend. 2 of them were medium light with a fast tip that I use for shakey heads and grubs or tubes in either 4 or 6 lb test.

    I am pretty picky. I found a 7&1/2 foot light action ONE PIECE at Gander Mountain last year that sold for $79.00 marked down to $49.95. I won't fish with two piece rods. Anyhow, sometimes you have to go to the store and physically look at the stock. Yesterday I caught a nice three pounder on an Ugly Duck crankbait with it and it was a blast.

    I hit the yard sales and pick up old fiberglass fly rods for .50 cents to 2 bucks. With a small spinning reel they work better than anything I've tried!

    Cheers,

    **I'm a cheapskate but fiberglass fly rods are heavy.
