Default Re: Favorite less expensive rods / reels?

I dont think for the $$ TFO can be beat...I use them for lessons...and they are great rods, and the guarantee is hard to beat...Lamson reels are tearing up the market too...

I was at the show in Denver and tried the TFO and a Sage ...and for 500$ there was not that big a difference...most peolpe would never know the difference..JMHO...

the high dollar stuff isnt as appealing as it once was to me becase of how much other things are costing...shops like the $$ because the mark up is

a typical TFO costs a shop 130-175$ and retails for $225-325.00 a similar sage costs a shop 260.00 and retails from between $480-545.00...hmmm...thats a big difference...
