    Sage "Vantage" and "Flight" are made in the US, and both retail for less than $300.

    I believe the Orvis Clearwater is on this catagory as well

    To me, the journey of learning is almost more fun than arriving at the destination of knowing.

    You can probably get a top of the line American made rod for that price. Used, but still...

    Scott A3. Made in Colorado. Two piece just under $300 and four piece just over. Same league as Sage Flight but not as fast an action.

    you will have a sweet rod for the price range you are looking, check out some of the leland upgrade rods, used rods for slightly less price, heard A3 is a sweet rod, Winston value rods are supposed to be very good for the money, flight, vantage, launch are supposed to be some of the best in there price class. also some of the custom made rods on ebay are very nice (i actually looked up the company that built the rod i ended up purchasing, but all in all very good deal getting a built rod.

    The sage launch, flight, and vantage are all under 300 and are completly made here in the U.S...just like every sage...ever. Be carefull with St. Croix. Everything cheaper than the avid is an import.

    isnt the sage launch discontinued??
