I'd probably just go to Walmart and pick you something up there. That way you can see how it feels in person instead of ordering online.

I got a quantum rod at academy for $12 last week. It's worked great so far. Sensitive and enough rod to flip in a almost two pound crappie.

I bought one of those and the rod snapped in half when I got hung up on some brush. I plan on getting another one because they are inexpensive and that's perfect for my son.

Wally Marshall has a good line of rods and reels that are manufactured by Lews.

A guy I fish with just got a Shimano Sojourn spinning rod for less than $30. It is one of the best
feeling, lightest rod I have held in a long time.

Simple. Go to Walmart and buy a 6' medium action spinning rod for $18.88.

I have three that I use for my teaching trips and I use one of them a lot myself and I have a bunch of much more expensive rods. Very sensitive and has plenty of backbone to lift a big fish over the rail of my pontoon. Biggest mistake most anglers make is getting too light of a rod thinking it's more sensitive. Not true. I've found that a stiffer rod is actually more sensitive. A soft tip will absorb more of the thump than a stiffer one.

I agree - medium action with "Fast" tip!

Works for me!

Assuming a 1 piece rod works for you from your initial link the medium light Vengeance rod looks like a good deal.

The Fenwick rod looks good too if you want to spend a bit more.

I've bought several rods from FFO (Berkley outlet store) through the years. You get a free gift like a sample lure or something from them which is fun to unbox. Looks like they have a special running where if you spend 50 you save 15. https://www.ffo-tackle.com/Promo/Promo.cfm

For the money a Berkley Cherrywood is hard to beat - about $25, but have seen them on sale at Academy before for half that.
