    Any rod in the 6'8"-7'0" range that's a medium-heavy, fast. Some of the better brands, Dobyns fury, Abu Garcia Veritas, Duckett Ghost, Falcon Bucoo, etc..


    Under $200, I would consider a G. Loomis E6X

    For $20 more get a Carbonlite 2.0. These rods are awesome. I know BassPro gets knocked quite a bit on here, but these rods are the real deal. I used to own $160 Crucials with Shimano...used to... They're not even in the same league as the Carbonlites IMHO. Not sponsored, just really like these rods. I also had a Duckett Micro Magic at one point to. The Carbonlite felt lighter, better balanced and again way more sensitive. You don't have to buy one if you don't want to, but I encourage you to pick one up, just once, and tell me I'm wrong ;)

    Length and Action really depends what you want to do with it. But a 7' M/H can do a lot. I use 7'6" rods exclusively for most everything. I have the odd shorter rod but for specialty stuff only.

    Berkley Lightning rods, and shock. Series One will also fall around $100. Some of the best value for rods.

    Build it.

    Will still need to buy the thread and resin but you should still be under 100.00. And will have built it yourself.

    I have an older black Carbonlite 7'mh and it's still my favorite casting rod.

    You can pick up a Daiwa Tatula Casting rod from here for $109 shipped. I have a couple and love them for the price.

    You also can't go wrong with a Dobyns Fury. Have several of those and they're great rods. I do find the Tatula might be a bit more sensitive for bottom contact baits tho.

    I have 3 mh carbonlites in my fleet and all are excellent. Lews tp1 is awesome too. I think they're around $100 at Academy.

    St. Croix bass X would be my choice but I’m also a fan boy. Cabelas fish eagle rods are good for the money too
