I wouldn't like the feeling of having to baby it. I'd feel bad about fishing with something I couldn't afford to throw away at the end of the day if it got destroyed.
Because I feel this way, I've spent a lot of time fishing with 'inexpensive' rods. I've still had (and continue to have) lots of fun.
