I have the Mojo and a Compre. I would say the compre is a much better rod, but St. Croix also makes other models besides the Mojo in that price range. The Compre would be an excellent choice, they are powerful and sensitive.

I beleive the Mojo, Truimph and Premier all have the same blank in the St Croix line.  Other than comestics the blanks are their stain II graphite.  I have several of the Triumphs and a couple Avids.  For Carolina and Jigs,  I would squirrel a few more dollars and get an Avid.  Lighter and more sensitive.

I haven't held the Lami, but I have handled the Mojo and the Compre and neither have impressed me. I'm also not a big fan of split-grip rods, so of the rods listed, I'd have to say Compre...but I think you could find a much better rod in the Flea Market in the same price range. For example, I picked up a lightly used Avid a few months ago for $90 shipped.
