Been out of fishing since early 2000’s just getting back into it. Went out today and broke a spinning rod so need a new one. I was/am a falcon low rider fan. That being said I’ve heard a lot of good things about dobyns g loomis ect. What’s a good medium action spinning rod in the 125-150 dollar range? Thanks in advance.

Dobyns fury, sierra, or kaden would be my suggestions. The kaden and sierra are the same price but the kaden has a full grip handle and the sierra has a split grip handle.

I'm a dobyns fan but I have heard great things about falcon too. G. Loomis doesn't sell a rod in the sub $200 price range to my knowledge but they make very nice rods.

what kind of baits do you want to use with it? I have 3 that use regularly for different things.. a Skeet Reese drop shot rod, a Jacob Wheeler 7'2" I use for shakey head and a 7' Falcon Buccoo I use for slabs for white bass. They have been good rods for me.

Phenix Feather is in budget. the NEW M1 looks fire....i have the old one and like it a lot. So feather in your budget or M1 if you wanna blow the budget, but within reason......like we all end up doing.

EDIT:
Its my understanding lots of custom builders use Phenix blanks and they have a real solid rep from everything ive read. and yea, aside from a swimbait rods all my recent rod purchases(just a few rods, not an aresenal) the last couple/few years have been phenix both spinning and casting.

Have a buddy that loves his new Falcon Cara spinner. I'm with Bockscar, look at the Phenix rods, they are underrated and great value for the price point.
