Targus got into some kind of business trouble and discontinued the line, and the remaining inventory is being sold off by The Fly Shop in Redding, Calif. The 9x4 model was originally sold at a list price $299 but is now marked down to $129, right in your target price range, and are a fantastic bargain at that price. They still have the 9x4's in stock.

One added bonus is that they come with a second tip, so if you break your tip while on the water you can still keep fishing. At this price point that's an attractive feature. However, look at the photos and make sure you don't mind the reel seat and paint job -- they are a little flashy for some people's taste.

I just ordered a 4 wt. Pro Series rod. After reading Silver Creek's review on another site. I have the Borger LT 4/5 reel, so that should be a good match up. Silver Creek, if you read this pm me. I'd like to get a spare spool or 2 for that reel.
