Looking to really give the c-rig a try. What is a good rod to go with? Prefer to keep it at or below $100.

I use a Duckett Triad 7'3 MH. No complaints here. Used a Heavy action rod for awhile, but switching to a little softer rod and a lighter wire hook has helped get more of them to the boat for me personally.

I've really like the BPS Johnny Morris carbonlite rods. I use a 7'0" MH and I'm about to buy a 7'3".

Buy two Berkeley Lightnings....one heavy in 7-3" and one med heavy 7'.

Keep two C-rigs on the deck.
A shorter/lighter job for shallow work, and a big heavy rig with a longer leader for the deep stuff.

Both for under $90

I thought a mono leader was best due to it floating. Reading some folks going with fluoro??

With a mono leader it will still sink, not quite as fast as a leader of fluorocarbon but it will sink unless you use a bait that floats.
