St. Croix vote here. Although the Rick Clunn is awesome too. I have never fished with the other two.

The croix you mentioned is basically one step up from a Wal-mart model. The Clunn I was told by several people at bps is a piece of crap. That leaves the falcon, all star, and Van Dam.  Any of these three would be great but I would rank the them based on the company they are made by and their reputatin.  

#1  Falcom Lowrider-- Awesome sensitive rod

#2  All Star-- close second to Falcon

#3  Van Dam-- I am always wary of buying somethng with a pros name on it.  Chances are he doesn't evan use that exact model.

#4  St. Croix-- Yeah it is a St. Croix, but really how much "croix"  can they put into a $100 rod.

#5  Clunn-- I have owned 3 BPS rods and all three have broken in the first year of use.  I will never buy nor recommend a BPS rod ever again.

When it comes down to it they really are all good rods.  Find the one YOU like best.  You have to get what is best for YOU. :)

I have 2 of those extreme rods and am happy with them.  They are not the best of the bunch, but for the price they are very good rods.
