Default Wetfly hydrogen rod?

Im looking for a 2 or 3 wt under 200 dollars specifically a medium action rod. i stumbled upon the wet fly hydrogen on sale for $150. this is in the same range as the TFO finesse and the reddington tempt. apparently its worth 400 dollars retail but I'm kinda unsure about that. just wondering if anyone had any experience with this brand and specifically this rod.

also what would be a light reel around 100? looking at the redington drift

thanks of the help,
scott

Elkhorn rods are GREAT rods for cheap. Echo Carbons are also extremely popular in the ultralight world, pretty much your best bang for your buck under $200. They come in both 2 and 3wt models. A few other very popular options under $200:

Reddington CT's (now Redington Tempts)
TFO Finesse
St. Croix Imperial

Before I bought my 2wt Superfine Touch I joined the Ultralight Fly Fishing Forum (www.ultralightflyfishing.com). It is a great place to learn about UL rods/reels/tactics.
