Default Re: What's the Best Fly Rod under $60 New? - your input wanted

To answer the original question....
I have had or tried a bunch of cheap rods over the years
The Cabela's 3 Forks 3wt (usable)
A Berkley IM6 5wt (a real dog)
An Eagle Claw graphite 6wt (no thank you)
My son has one of the Pfluegers, a 6wt, don't remember which one, (not bad)
A Scientific Anglers 8wt, (pretty good, also available in 6wt)
A $13 no name 6wt from Walmart (I use it to play with the house cats)
My favorite cheap rod and the only one I really use came from Sportsman's Guide.... a 10' 8wt .. $25.... unfortunately no longer available
