Hey has anyone tried the St. Croix triumph casting rods? I just got my hands on a lews pro magnesium and looking to save money so want the triumph and was wondering if anyone had any experience with one. Is there a better one in the price range. Thanks so much in advance.

You could look at a new Dobyns Colt series rod. It runs $80.  I have never touched one, since they are brand new. I would suggest you save a bit more money and take a look at a Dobyns Fury series rod. I have a friend currently fishing 4 or 5 of them and he is really happy with them. Personally my Dobyns are much more expensive. A Fury rod runs $119 and fishes more like a $200 rod.  It is winter so I would suggest to save a few more dollars and go that way.

According to what Gary Dobyns has said about his new series they have nice blanks and he saved a few pennies on the components in order to sell one of his rods for the price a Colt sells for. I know only one person who currently has one and he likes it.

Another option is an Abu Garcia Vendetta or Veritas.  I have fished two Veritas before I upgraded both to Dobyns rods.  I currently fish with one Veritas and that is a 7 ft Heavy which I have setup for punching.  Be aware most Abu Garcia's run a bit on the heavier side with their actions.

I got a Triumph and i think it performs well for a rod in its price range. I have fished with it plenty of times and it did it’s job. I would suggest saving up a few more bucks and getting a BassX.
