Does anyone have any opinions or comments on shakespeare? Right now I am looking for an inexpensive combo under $130. Maybe I would go up to $150. Can someone give me their opinion on these rods...?

What are the model numbers, weights and other descriptive information?

For what it's worth-- the only rods you list that I've fished with are the Pfleuger. The new Trion series is a good, low-dollar rod. They are a touch heavy, but that is about my sole complaint. Match them with one of the Pfleuger Supreme reels, the gold ones. If you can wait a bit, Pfleuger is coming out with an updated, improved Supreme. They are re-working the drag system and doing some re-sizing.
