Default Schoolie Rod

I am looking for a 2 piece 7’ light spin rod that has enough mustard to turn a small keeper. I’ll be tossing small plugs, and probably spool with #8-#12. I like the St. Croix, but was hoping someone could steer me towards a more inexpensive option. Any help would be appreciated.

Quantum make's an inshore rod that's inexpensive and is great for throwing plug's.Good for schoolie's but has enough backbone for bigger fish.

I have friends that fish with nothing but Ugly Stick's. They are quite inexpensive and Shakespear claims they are unbreakable.Also, Bass Pro Shops usually sells their Tourney Special for about $30-40 and the Bionic Blade between $50-$80. These rods are offered in every possible length/weight/purpose. Pricing depends on the sale they are running. Many times they have incredible prices on combos.

Check out the Ugly Stik BWS1100-7. I think it is exactly what you are looking for. 7', 2 pc, 10-25 lb line, 1/2-3 oz lure weight. I have a couple of the 6 1/2' that I leave on the boat for "emergencies"

Temple Fork just came out with some new Spining rods that I've been impressed with. You can order them online, and they make them in 3 piece. I think they retail at $99.00. A real good deal. Sounds like you'd want the medium heavy that will set up perfect with 12 pound test.
