Mark me down for all of the above!
Though there is much to consider when buying a rod it really doesn't seem that way when the above and more are considered. Price and prettiness are evaluated, usually decided on quickly then forgotten sometimes until you're just about ready to pull the trigger.
Where you plan on using the rod will help detemine the action and size.
I'm big on buying domestic rods for quite a few reasons so that factors in to my buying decision.
