I like the Sea Striker Contour rods. Cheap enough and plenty good for inshore. I've caught a ton of fish on them and can't tell a noticeable difference between them and my $120 shimano inshore rods.

All my inshore rods are Crowder Tidelines with Penn Battles or Clashes for reels. They have put a lot of Spanish and trout into my cooler.
The Crowder Salutes start at $100.

Couldn't go wrong with a Star rod either.

Star Stellar Lite at $100 with a lifetime warranty is a dang good option. That's what I opted to gift my brother.

I also use a few of the St. Croix Triumph at $90. I really like these also. They classify them as freshwater rods but I've not had any saltwater issues with them.

I have a 7'6" hurricane calico jack rod. Very happy with it. $50-60ish.

What's the application or style of fishing? I really like the Shimano SE Teramars in that price range.

Inshore spinning, 3000 reels. I have Ugly Sticks as well, just wondering what else was out there. Thanks all

Hurricane Calico Jack. Can get it for about $50.00 if you can find them.

I like my Shimano Compre rods, paid $80.00 ea. They’ve taken some abuse, have good sensitivity and are light.

Cut my teeth fishing on my buddies Redbone rod. He swore by it. I couldn't justify the price.

Found a great sale on a 13Fishing Omen. Don't even like the Redbone any more, felt clunky and heavy the last time I used it (bias?). Liked the Omen and the price so much, I just added another one to replace my broken Star Rod (bought on another friend's recommendation).

If your only problem is with the eyes, you could replace them yourself.

I was just looking at a Penn Battalion inshore rod. Had a nice look and feel. It is right at $90-100. Anyone have any experience with one?

May do that with for a backup. Good idea, not thought about it or even seen it done

Calico Jack rods for $60 are hard beat.
