Default Re: Favorite less expensive rods / reels?

I am strictly a cheap ($200) rod and reel type of guy.

I love the following rods, all in that category:

Redington RS4 8' 3wt and 9' 7wt (sadly discontinued)
Mystic Reaper 9' 4wt
Winston Passport 9' 5wt

Rods that I passed along due to unimpressive or stiff:

Ross FW 9' 4wt and 9' 6wt
TFO TiCrX 9' 5wt

My favorite reels:

Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock I and II
Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor III (sadly discontinued)
