I'd either go with the Falcon Cara (If you have an Academy Sports & Outdoors near you they are on clearance for under $100.00) or even the Falcon Lowrider.  I picked up 2 Cara's this past week 1-6'6" MH and 1-6'9" Medium "Weightless Worm Special", both were $99.88/each.

Check all your local retailers, some of our guys are still picking off Avids for less than $100.

A timely thread for me. I've been thinking the Crucial is a safe bet, but been wondering what else is competitive in the $150 range. I've seen mixed reviews on the GL2. Leon

Lightest most sensitive rod on the market for $150 is an E21 Carrot Stix. Its an absolute steal. :o

I just got a revo stx and have $150 to spend on a rod to put my new reel on. What would you get if you were me?

Call the Sportsmans warehouse in Roanoke and see if they have any Loomis IMX or St Croix Legends marked down. If not, have them do a chain inventory search to see what is left out there. I got my MBR IMX rod for $150 and an SJR rod for $120. I heard others got different rod marked down too. I also got free shipping on my deeply discounted Fuegos mailed in, from 3 states away...right to my doorstep. I know the local SW still had the MBR rod marked down along with Avids and Legends. I see your in NC, but if the TN or SC store is closer, you could try either of them. I ended up having the store in Fargo ND do the search for me, becouse the 2 closer stores were not much help, if nothing else, try the Fargo store.

my local dicks still have some of the older avids for $99. Should I go that route? What does everybody think?

Yes. I think the Avid is compariable to the crucial or better. But that Loomis IMX that Pfluemis mentioned is a better rod still.

Brokejew, this looks like a good summary to me.  I like Powells but the few people on these forums who have tried the Dobyns rods say they are a step up from the Powell.  As you can see from all the posts, there are a lot of good rods in this price range.

Burley picked a new Cumara at one of our local shops last week for I believe it was $159, that is their regular price, and they have everything 10% off right nowl.

I'd be all over that if I could find one.  I saw Burley's post about that rod and that thing is SWEET!!!  What local shop was it that he got it from?  Could I call in an order and have it shipped to me?
