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.

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.
