I was just wondering recommendations on what rod to pick for swim baits. I was hoping to stay around $100 price point.

there are 2 dobyns furys for swimbaits in that price range and you can't beat either one. I use the 795 for treble hooks and the 806 for softies. Honestly they are hands down the best swimbait rods in that price range
