Looking to buy a new pole as my old one that I have used for the longest time is getting pretty beat up. I've never actually bought a pole, or even shopped for one really, everything I've used has either been given to me or I've won. I don't really think I want to buy a combo, I'd rather get a good rod and a good reel separately and put them together. I mainly fish panfish, bass, and pike. I'd really like to spend $30 or less for the rod, and another $30 or so on a casting reel (can't stand spinners). Anyone have some suggestions based on my price range + type of fish? Edit: I'm leaning towards an Ugly Stick in either the light/ultra light flavor, probably around 6 ft at most (not a fan of the 7 ft poles).
