I am looking to buy a casting rod. I have heard good things about the Diawa Arid-x so far. What are your guys thoughts on that rod? Or what other rods would u suggest for an all around rod under $80?

I have the Arid-X in the 7’ heavy, and I am pleased especially considering the value.  I am impressed enough that I consider it the top of its price category.

If you upped your price to $100, I think you’d get the most out of your money. There are many more options that become available at $100 too.

I bought some after reading all the praise they get. After fishing them for a couple outins im a little dissapointed. 

The blanks are weak, my MH feels like a medium, my medium is more like a ml. A 5lb fish really tested the rod, felt like it was gonna snap. And the reel seat screw turns loose really fast. I have remember to tighten it every couple casts. 

They are not bad rods but they retail for $55 and i think its a fair price for them. The lews mach2 rod it replaced was miles better

What I generally suggest to anyone looking in that price range is Rae a look at the Fenwick Silverhawk. It’s a great rod that’s usually priced at $100 but is almost always on sale for about $60 at Cabela’s. I would definitely take a look at one if you’re near a Cabela’s or go online and look into them. I have a spinning version and I love it

If you can save up some extra money a Dobyns Fury is an amazing rod for an extra $30. If you can wait for the 4th of July sale on Tackle Warehouse you could pick one up for around the $90 range.
