Check out the Tica rods great rods for the price around $100.00
$200 doesn't leave a lot of choices if you decide to go with braid a 300 yd spool will run you at least $25-30. You might want to go used. A nice Penn slammer 360 for around $100.00 they have some good deals on the BST but being your a newbie you can't buy or sell until your a member in good standings for 7 days & have at least 15 posts.
Welcome to the site!
Hi flytyingguy1, I'd really like to dabble into the conventional fishing space, but suspect I may not be experience enough yet. In terms of weights, something I can use to throw as far as possible to get past the seaweed (when I do pier fishing).
Thanks I will look into the Tica rods. I'd really like a combo that will be good for all around fishing striped bass, blue fish, weak fish, fluke/flounder, black fish, seabass from the pier, jetty or surf. Is the Tica + Penn slammer good for this?

Hey j0k3r, thanks I will take a look into the above rod + reel combos. Is that combo good for all around fishing from pier, jetty, surf?
