For the rod  i'd like to keep it under $100 , that way i still have some $$ for line and a few packs of plastics .

Ok. You have the Vendetta around $80, Vertas and Compare both $100. If you want to be lower, the best rod to get would be a Lightning Shock rod for $50.

I was looking at the Veritas , but i feel like many people have them and i've seen that alot of the times the guides break . What about the 

Bionic blade ? and how well is the reel of choice ?

I would go for the Lightning Shock over the Bionic Blade. For the kind of fishing, you might be better off with a MH F rod.

Look into the Powell Diesel...from what I've heard from other people they are fantastic rods for the money

Never paid attention to the Powell, but it looks promising for the price. The only thing I dont like is the reel seat, not enough blank exposure for me.

If you think you deserve something, you probably don't deserve anything.

I need something available at Bass Pro . It's around the corner from me and they have the rod trade-in going on in about 2-3 weeks .

If you spend less on the reel you can afford a better rod.

 

Excuse me for assuming this, but I am guessing you are somewhat new to fishing in general. 

 

I would get something cheaper than a revo to keep overall costs down for the whole setup until you learn what you like a little more.

 

And I agree for what you are trying to catch, I would go MH/F 7' +

 

I would probably buy a Vendetta 2 (MH/F 7'-7'6") [80$] and a Lews Speed Spool [100$] MSRP for everything.

 

You can get this all cheaper online or during a deal.

 

Personally I wouldnt go out trying to catch huge carp or salmon on my dedicated bass gear, but that is me.
