Default Redfish rod recommendation.

I busted a couple of my rod tips off over the weekend and now I have an excuse to buy the rods I should have bought in the first place. I am looking fortwo 7 to 7.5 ft spinning rods, 8-15lb class. Cost per rod I would like to be around $100.00 or less. Do any of you have good recommendations? Thanks for any feedback.

Jim

St. Croix - Tidemaster series........I fish them in a 6'6" Med/light. Fantastic rods for the price. I beleive I spent right at $100. They are on the the lower end of their rods. But worth every penny in my opinion!!!!!!!!

I have 3 and the all are my favorite. I have caught just about everyfish (except bills) on them. My favorite is the Avid, it has a little more back bone. All of them are great rods.

The St Croix Tidemaster 1-piece rods list for between $120-$180.......I have 5 Tidemasters, 1 Premier and 1 Surf Rod. I just picked up a 7'-6" 10#-20# MHF "closeout" at Woods and Water in Tuscaloosa for $70 last Friday. They are great rods and I just love them.

I think one of the best rods for the money may be the Shimano Teramar Inshore SE $99-$109 and tough as heck!!!!

Maybe I'm just cheap, but for years, (and I mean decades) I have fished with Ugly Sticks. I have only broke one that wasn't truly my fault and they replaced it without a question. I have never had one fail me. And the few that my kids lose overboard didn't leave me in tears, it was losing the reels that made me cry.
