Check Get Bit Outdoors. They have some nice Rainshadow RX on special. There's a nice blank for $50. They don't kill you on shipping either.

Fits your needs.

I built a trout rod on a RainShadow Revelation blank. I liked it so much I'm going to build another one on the same blank. Think the blank is $49 dollars. 


I've built quite a few RainShadow blanks for myself and a few guys here and I think I can safely say we have all loved them.

I have a Fenwick Eagle 7' UL I think it's rated 1/32 to 1/4oz.  It's a pretty fun rod for trout and pan fish.

The Avids are great rods, as are the Trout Series Spinning rods from St Croix. They make a 6'4 that you'd probably really like, MSRP $130.

I've been fishing a lamiglas infinity 7'6" ultra light for trout the past year and love it. Definitely on the more expensive side but I also use it for shad in the spring and have caught largemouth to 5 pounds on it

The Douglas LRS is a nice rod as well. I fish an avid for my UL 6ft and LRS 6-12 9ft.  I also will say TFO makes some fine rods for the $
