For rod holders on a boat, this is an inexpensive rig that works great.
Academy Shimano FX 7 foot for 12.99.
Shakespeare Tidewater 37.99 at Walmart. The Tidewater has a great clicker and a big handle. Does a good job on Big Fish. It isn't great for long casts though. In a rod holder on my boat, they do the trick for right at $50.
