    150$ range multi purpose casting rod advice

    I'm looking for a casting rod between 6'6-7ft for multi purpose use. Prefer like some rods a 1/4oz-3/4oz rating so I'm assuming for the most part a mh power with a fast action. I looked at falcon bucco sr, dobyns fury, lews etc. If anyone has any experience with a budget friendly rod for around 150 price range, I'm open to all suggestions, for the most part I'm a finesse kinda guy and spinning rods are my bread and butter. Sadly my multi purpose rod is down in Florida where I use it more. I

    If you prefer to buy American the St. Croix Premier series fits the bill.

    Where I would be looking for a good deal on something a bit up the ladder. ALFC puts new items up every Sunday evening. The Loomis sticks carry a rock solid warranty and many are new with tags.

    Won a bid on my most recent NRX on there. Called and paid for it. Two days later was on the water with it after work. Simple.

    I wish I knew about alfc having a ebay! I looked at a st croix and with how they fish a mh would be perfect. Like I said it's used but not half as much as spinning for me.

    Ive been fishing a long time, and if you don't go visit this guy and buy a rod you wont find out what you have been missing. Id suggest a 610m in the Black series, a rod designed by me.

    Dan Bowman is one of the good guys left in the fishing world. He builds each rod himself, one at a time, and doesn't settle for "ok" or "good enough". I thought I knew a lot about blanks, handles, actions until I met Dan. He is legit, and builds the best rod I have ever placed my hands on.

    Hi Josh!
    I don't see the 6'10" in M, only 6"6" and 7'. What gives? Good prices, micro guides?
