Default beginner / intermediate fly rod & reel suggestions

I'm still relatively new to fly fishing - absolutely love it! Caught my first redfish on the flats this week in the lowcountry SC. I have been using a cheap entry level fly rod / reel combo from Bass Pro and am ready to get something semi-serious. Money is unfortunately a priority. I'm overwhelmed by manufacturers (Loomis, Sage, Orbis, etc...) and very ignorant but am learning quickly. I've been looking at an entry level starter kit for around $180ish from Redington (the 890-4 or 990-4?) but would like to get some recommendations on good reel / rod / and lines to use with these on a step up from this with ballpark pricing. Went to Bass Pro today and spent a good hour and a half with a great sales rep but still have a lot to learn. Will be fishing primarily for reds and some trout. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Andrew
