Bottom end of that range, I would look at TFO.
Top end of that range, I would look into Powell Max or Kistler. Both good rods at the top end of that spectrum.
Can't speak to shimano, because I've only owned reels, not rods. I own 4 Duckets and do not love them. They are ok, but always seemed underpowered and not nearly as sensitive and responsive as my Powells, Kistlers, Dobyns, or even cheaper TFOs.
