Default Rod Prices

Okay so I've figured out what the numbers to the rods, reels, and lines mean. I step into the fly shop and take a look around. First thing I notice after finding the right size rod is the price tag.I n some cases a rod costs more than 5 times the price of a combo set.

Something has to be wrong.

My question is with such a wide span in prices anywhere from $30 to $1,000 (possibly more) what is the difference?

What makes one 9 foot 5 weight worth so much more than another?

What price can a beginner expect to pay on a decent starter rod without sacrificing performance?

Thank you
