Just wondering what rods you guys are throwing in the $100 price range?

I have an older Shimano Compre I really like and a new one I havent used yet, a few lamiglass Infinity rods I also like but would like others opinions.

Rods would be for swimming jigs and skipping docks and under bushes or maybe a light weight flipping stick.

Thanks

Falcon Bucoo
St. Croix Premier
Omen Black
My three choices right around $100-$120

Don't be afraid to buy used rods of the trading forum, just make sure you know what you're looking at before going to buy. Rod tip repair, condition of the cork, how old is the rod. Sometimes you can find one and make your dollar go further.

Falcon Bucoo

If you ask me, the Bucoo is the best rod in the $100 price range. The lightweight design and overall sensitivity/balance blows all the others away. These rods are freakishly light and are built hardy. Their true to form and I've never had a problem with a single one. Hell of a rod for $100!

I am a fan of the Duckett Ghost Rods. I have used most of the $100 dollar rods out there and it has been my go to. The Falcon bucoo's are great and superlight for fishing all day. I would say the veritas are pretty close as well and good sensitivity with their 30 ton blanks.

Used low rider in the classifieds for that price too.
Dobyns fury
Powel inferno
Omen black "I've owned 6 with no issues,others have had issues" o got rid of mine due to the short handle length.

Stay away from the ghost,any Abu Rod that price or below,any quantum that price or below, and I hate to say it but the lews line of rods that price or below are terrible too.
