I would definitely look into Daves' (Custom Angle rods). I have three of his hot rod series and I love them. And the awesome thing is, you can have them made to the exact overall length,handle lengthy etc. The 7'11" I have is paired with the Revo winch and it will almost throw every bit of 14lb.line off. And the action and sensitivity of the hot rod series are great for cranking rods

I use the Abu winch series rods. The Veritas($99) is under your amount and the Veracity($149) is right at it. I have both and they have performed well.

I have fished a LOT of rods during the years, but finally settled on the Dobyns rods as the best. They are outside your price range on the Champions, the BEST CB rods I have found on the market. They do have a Fury rod for $110 that might work for you, but if you can get custom for that with a quality product, HARD to beat that. I still hvae 4 custom built 8' rods for deep CBing and I have all of them paired with the old greenie curado B5s. 2 are ML and 2 are MH. IN that range, if you can FIND IT at Academy, the old Ethos Cranker is a good rod, for around $70, that is if you can find it. I am throwing deep divers on the 7'6" XHF rod they have, to have an all around versatile rod, vs. all the specialty rods I have, works well, again, if YOU CAN FIND IT. Another one in your price range is the KVD Cranking Stick from Quantum, it is composite, not graphite and it works well, too. I just prefer FULL GRAPHITE. If you go with full graphite, put your drag down so a 3# bass can pull a little bit, that way you won't rip the hooks out. Wish I had better advice, but that is what I am familiar with. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
