Going to buy another rod at somepoint, trying to stock up on gear before my little fisherman or Fisher woman is born. Looking at $200 price point and found these 3 at that range that I like. Like the variety that megabass has. Like the look and idea of the evergreens. And the zodias just flat looks good as well as variety. What do yall think about them?

I've never used the Evergreens (although I know they make very nice high end rods), but I own two Megabass sticks (Levante & Orochi XX) and two Shimano sticks (Expride & Adrena). Overall, I prefer my Megabass sticks over my Shimanos. Since my Levante is the Leviathan, the rest of the lineup is going to feel a lot different. But if I had to pit the Orochi XX against the Expride (both are around $300), I'd choose the Orochi. Perhaps the same applies to both companies' $200 offerings.

Here are TT reviews for each, although if you were interested in these rods, you've probably already read them.
Evergreen: (7.4 ounces is insane for a rod, even if it is a heavy! However, it is a glass rod so that weight is to be expected; most of the Combat Sticks are heavier in action)
Levante: (it's no Orochi, but the lineup looks good)
Zodias: (it's no Expride, but the lineup looks good. Jokes aside, TT has the same things to say to both: JDM aesthetics and both are a little tip heavy)

I have a Levante, it is great.
