    Here is a link to a guy selling a used star rod, looks good and itís been for sale for a while. Not to far from you, maybe make an offer.

    I am looking hard at the Daiwa Ballistic LT and the Fuego LT reels. Super light and decent drag for their size. I am done with Shimano.

    Thanks for the heads up on West Marine. I have one 5 minutes away and will go check it out. When you say the tip breaks off of the redbone, are you talking the tip itself breaks or the rod itself breaks at the tip?
    The tip of the rod, last 3 or 4 inches, is very thin and very fragile... will easily break a couple inch's from the end. However I have a few of these rods and love them for the price... Used to get them at Sports Authority years ago when they were in business and before they got rid of their fishing department, they would put them on sale for $79.99, and the Calico Jack was on sale for $49.99. No idea where you'd find them today, but the Calico Jack was a great rod for 50 bucks.
    I would still recommend you look at rods like the Terramar, Star Stellarlite, Falcon Coastal... and a few other's already mentioned.

    If you really just want inexpensive.. go to Bass Pro Shops and buy a combo's on sale .. you can get the Penn Battle II for like $130.00 for the 2500/3000 size with a 7' rod. If there are any problems you can walk in BPS withe receipt and they are good on their customer service.
    I personally don;t like the BPS Gold Cup rods, I've had a couple and had issues with the guides either the rings popping out or one I had the first guide had a sharp nick that shreded braid, don;t like the quality of their Offshore Angler stuff either.
