You need to provide a little more info--do you want a boat rod or a surf rod, for openers.

 

Your location can help, too, because in some places, you can get a decent custom for that $250-$300 price range.

You shouldn't have to spend $250-$300 for a quality boat rod. I don't know many production models offhand, being a surf guy, but I would think you'd be able to find something decent in the $100-$150 range.

 

If you're ever in SE Mass, you might want to check out CMS Tackle in New Bedford, and talk to Eric or Charlie. They probably have some custom sticks already wrapped and ready to go.

Check out the UglyStik Tigers. Cabelas has the 7 foot BWCAO2202. It has aluminum oxide guides. It throws a 2 ounce popper well and has no problem bouncing a 16 ounce cod jig. Really nice rod for $56 and shipping. Put a Daiwa Sealine reel on it for another $119 and you will have money left over for line and beer.

 

...on second thought, skip the beer and upgrade to a Daiwa Saltist reel.wink.gif
