    I haven't bought a spinning rod for quite some time but find my self in need due to an unforced error. Don't ask, I couldn't stand the embarrassment.

    I am looking for a 1 piece, 7 foot medium with fast action. Will spend around a 100 bucks.

    What are you guys liking out there?

    Dobyns fury, basspro carbonlite, also pro qualifier 2's can be had for 80 bucks. Fury is probably the best option

    Hard to beat Fenwick at that price point, HMG or HMX.

    I have a HMG that is over 20 yrs old and used heavily, the handle, wraps, and ferrule are still in excellent condition.

    I have a couple older ones I still use. I also bought a newer travel HMG spinning rod with the ML and M tips And live it.

    Berkeley Lightning rod (buy two for that price or put a Phleuger President reel on one for a nice outfit for $100)

    Falcon makes a good piece in that range. I have a Abu Veritas and really like it a lot. Stupid light and very sensitive.
