Calico Jack, Ohero, Daiwa Procyon or Arid Coastal
There are a lot of quality rods under $100

It's not too difficult. Here is the first video that came up on a quick google search. Plenty other videos out there.

Calico Jack, most bang for the buck. No it's not Star Plasma but you can buy four for one. Good actions snd very durable.

All star classic spin poppin $50 at academy. Once a year they go on sale for half off. I own 7 of them (bought 5 for $25 a piece). They have cork handles and fuji eyes and I've never had a problem with the inserts falling out. I use them inshore and offshore and they hold up well. Best bang for your buck IMO.

Crazy glue is all you need if you have them (Rings) if its the whole eye then its more of a process but a fun one when you consider the cost of replacing a rod you love.

I run St Croix rods and love the power/weight.

Duckett. It will be slightly more (maybe $110) but lighter weight makes a difference inshore. You will sling that rod hundreds of times a days; the weight adds up.

How does the Star Aerial rods compare with the rest of the line up? Interested in the St Croix's but curious why they are rated as freshwater.

My entire inshore arsenal is Redbone series rods. They are all under $100. I believe I have 10 of them and I have had some of them for 10 years plus. They are now called Calico Jack by Hurricane. My buddy broke a redbone on a huge stingray and they sent him a new one, Calico Jack. It’s a nice rod and the price is cheaper than the redbones. However when you bought a redbone rod you were also donating some of it to the redbone trust.

I have two high end St Croix rods and they don’t catch anymore fish than the redbones.

You can still buy a redbone or calico jack rod - not sure if they are actually the same.
