I rarely fish for Bass these days but I'm looking for a good m/h rod to throw 3/4 oz. and up Topwaters and 6th Sense Speed glides. $150 and under. Thanks guys.

It's going to be difficult to find MH rods rated much higher than 3/4oz. Are you going up to just 1.5oz or higher than 2oz?

Powell Inferno 765 SBR CF MH

Powell Inferno 734 H CF.
I don't have one, but I've read good things
It's rated as Heavy, but it's a soft heavy

Other rods to consider
Okuma Guide Select swimbait rods--often mentioned as the best swimbait rod under $150-- I think it's way too long for topwaters.
Falcon Bucoo XD cranker--but I think it's too long for most people for topwaters
Falcon Bucoo Amistad

I would go with the Dobyns Fury 734C rod. Fits exactly what you want to do and it handles up to 1 oz. baits. Designed for buzzbaits and horny toads and small swimbaits. Here is a link to it.

http://dobynsrods.com/rod/fr-734c/

Good thing about it, it is only $110, so you save some money on that, too. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
