advice on upgrading spin rod

Recommended Posts

I started bass fishing less than two years ago.  My first combo was a crappy quantum spinning reel with a quantum ML 2pc. rod.  This spring I purchased a nice Daiwa megaforce baitcaster with a daiwa procyon (M) rod, which I love.  I decided to upgrade the junk spin set-up a little bit, so I bought a Abu Cardinal spin reel, which works well, but I definitely need to upgrade the rod.  My budget is fairly thin, so I dont want to spend more than maybe $80 on a decent rod to pair up with the cardinal 102.  Any advice would be great.  I generally use the spin setup for finesse type applications and light tackle.  Thanks all...

Take a look at BPS rods, some of them are on fall clearance, also Cabelas, you may just get a great deal.

+1 - I have a couple of BPS Tourney Specials (7' - MH) and love em! I also have a Cabela's Fish Eagle II Casting Rod that works just fine for me! I think I paid $39.99 for each of them.
