im in the same boat, i think ive pretty much decided im gonna get a bps extreme 7' MH fast rod and reel combo they are have on sale for $100, i figure i can use the BPS reel until it fails and then get a decent reel, but im already getting a nice rod for the price

The BPS reels don't get much love here but they are far more than a cheap reel, with proper upkeep and care it should last you awhile.

A 7 foot MH casting will be the most versatile set up you could buy. At least it will allow you to fish spinnerbaits, medium weight jgs, buzzbaits and most any plastics. There are a number of surprizingly good reels in the 40 to 50 buck range if you shop around. I had a local tackle shop run the AG Black Maxx for only $29.97 on a two day sale. Merry Christmas !!

yes it is. excellent rod for the money. it will probably get moved to drop shot and light shaky head duty.

No kidding. Maintain that Extreme reel and it should last you good long while.
