I've got 4 Compres (3 baitcasters and one spinning) and they're incredible rods for the price.  Light and sensitive and very comfortable in my hands.  Highly recommended.  No experience with Browning, but I do have a couple Kistler Magnesiums.  Awesome rods too, lighter than a Compre with the split grip, but also quite a bit more expensive.  Haven't used a Worm and Jig Series.

I can only comment on the Compre. Excellent choice for you it would be. Love mine 100% and I was lucky enough to buy it for $54.00.

I have a Browing Midas 6'6" MF spinning rod.  Although it is plenty strong, the tip of the MF spinning rod may be a bit soft for jigs.  It is extremely sensitive, very light and has great casting distance.  You can feel the blades turning on a spinnerbait and every wobble of a wide body crankbait.  It compares more closely to a Crucial than a Compre, but doesn't have the warranty.

Went to BPS yesterday looking for Crucial 6'6" M EF tip. They didn't have that in Crucial but did have it in Compre. If I didn't have my heart set on Crucial, would have bought it! Took my reel to be sure of how it felt. Would definitely get Compre if not willing to wait for Crucial :)...

OK, I think the Kistler is pretty much out

Im really looking for someone that has both though because the Midas is on sale from 150 to 100. I really want to listen to the pretty much overwhelming support of the Compre, but at the same time I know that more people own the Compre than do the Midas.

I just really don't want to throw away that deal

ill be ordering pretty soon, so please help if you can
