What would be a really good casting rod for larger buzz baits that is reasonably priced?

my favorite rod that i have for buzzbaits is my 6'10" MH/F Daiwa Tatula....  

but what is "reasonably priced"?  that might help narrow down the array of answers you'll likely receive

I throw buzzbaits on any of my mh/f rods. Never had any issue with hookups. I prefer a rod without a parabolic bend because I throw them along the edge of pads a lot. I want to be able to get them out of there if the fish tries to make a run for cover. I have the 705cb that was mentioned above. I wouldn't ever use that for buzzbaits. It's way too soft of a rod for that technique.

Another vote for a fast action rod for buzzbaits. A M-F or MH-F at around 7' is going to be your bread and butter.

Regardless of the brand or pricing point, whatever you are using for "single hooks" will work just fine.

Perhaps more importantly, a fast reel is a must.

I would suggest the new new St. Croix Mojo Bass in 6'8" in MH/F. It'll be a pretty versatile rod in general, and will excel with buzzbaits. It comes in just a few dollars over budget. Otherwise, I think they still have some of the older Mojo Bass's left too for $89 if you were looking for a cheaper option.

I use a 7' M/F St. Croix Premier and have for almost 10 years now, never had a reason to switch.

I use a 6'8 Medium St Croix LTB (rod in my profile pic). I acquired it January and used it extensively this season it has been one of my favorite rods for any bait that does not have a heavy hook that requires a lot of backbone to set the hook with.
