Any ideas what I should buy. I have a stcroix avid series old one. Great rod but looking for something newer. 10ft

On a VS 150 I only throw under 1.5 oz plugs and cast only. 

What do you guys recommend something in the 4-500 range? Are the new legend series worth the price?

There's a brand new 3/4-4 Legend in the BST.  I personally don't think the Legend is worth it, as the increased cost for titanium guides is too much for my liking.  Great rod though and for $450 it's a great price!  

I would go with a Century S1 Stealth myself.

ODM Frontier X 9ft 6in is 3/4 to 4

If it’s a one peace rod you’re after, go with the; ODM - NEX1-105, it's rated for 1-5oz. and throws a 1oz. no problem. If the majority of your lures are           1 1/2oz. your all set. I personally cast 1 1/4oz. plugs with this rod, and it loads fine.

You can have it custom built for what you want, well within your budget.

Should make you happy as a clam...:)

Your going to get a bunch of different answers as everyone has their particular favorite. My advice would be try as many as you can get your hands on and see for yourself what you like best. All of the rods that have been mentioned are great which one you will like only you can tell.
