I’m looking for new rods. I’ve had the same ones for 15 years. I feel Like there is 2 different categories that I’m looking at. Rods from 120-150 and rods that are 250. What’s your favorite in these 2 categories? I’m looking for super sensitive worm rods with a good warranty.

Dobyns makes great products in every price range. The Sierra is one of the best rods you can get at the $180 price point, and the Champion rods are $260.. They are all very sensitive and balance ridiculously well. Plus their warranty is second to none.

Well first of all your title indicates that you are looking for the best rod out there and then in your post you say you are looking for super sensitive rods.. I would say that the Shimano Conquest and the NRX are the most sensitive rods on the market but they are way over your $250 price range. St Croix makes a very expensive rod but I don't know how it compares to the NRX or the Conquest, so if you want the best and super sensitive you will have to spend more than $250. The Shimano Poison Adrena is very sensitive and it is in the $350 price range. With that being said there are a lot of rods that will get the job done in the $250 price range and less. Dobyns, Falcon, Power Tackle, Kistler, Powell, Shimano, FXtreme, Daiwa all make very good rods. You just have to choose which ones you like best.

I have been super happy with my Dobyns Champion Extreme Rods. Now that they are in QuitmanTexas they are even better for warranty/repairs. First Class!

The warehouse is in Sulfur Springs. The Sierra line of rods are totally awesome for the price point and a Fury is a super value for what Gary sells them for. Fury best bang for the buck according to Gary. The Champion Extremes are awesome rods.

I've been happy with lews rods. Not sure if they're the best, but they're good.
