I have an old BPS Tourney Special casting combo from when it was a red reel and a cork grip rod. I think it was like $50 on sale. I have some 14lbs Big Game on it. Works ok for when I just want something I can bang around or throw in the back of the truck.

Cabelas fish eagle spinning combo $30. First combo I picked up this last spring after not fishing for 15 years. Then I got hooked and the bait monkey got hold of me. Now, I just got a Calcutta D and LTB for swim baits. Didn't take long for fishing to get out of control. Ha.

My least expensive combo is this Duckett rod with a Speed Spin reel spoiled with 15# generic braid. The entire rig including bait was under $150!

Ironically the fish didn't care.

Pflueger trion ($40) and a shimano crucial I got on clearance at dsg for $65 for a total of $105.  This is the cheapest combo that I actually use.  I have cheaper ones that I don't use like the cabelas pro guide/shakespeare agility casting combo for $39.

Not for bass neccesarily but I picked up an older Mitchell ultralight spinning combo at a thrift shop for $7. Got me into the whole ultralight thing for a while and still one of my favourite light rods to this day.

I have some cheaper ones but the cheapest one I use regularly for bass is an H2O combo. Bought the rod and reel both on sale, a Mettle for $29, Ethos micro guide for $59, out the door for right at $100 with tax. Probably my favorite jerkbait combo I've ever owned.

I'm sure you see it a lot around there too but I see a lot of pop bottles with line wrapped around them, same concept.

Personally I prefer aluminium cans with some pebbles inside, they rattle when the fish runs with the bait, and I ain't joking, I do fish for carp with mexican yo-yos.

I can't quite picture you fishing that gear.

As mentioned in the other thread, a 6' MH Berkley Lightning for $17 + tax and a Daiwa Procaster 100HN for $30 on closeout.  Awesome spinnerbait combo.  I did get a free Cabela's TXS XXI 7' Jig & Rig spinning rod when I bought a casting rod from the classifieds.  My grandson uses it with a spinning reel I bought new 30-40 years ago....a Shimano AX2000.  No idea what I paid for it.
