hi matt, i know that tfo is unveiling a reel in the next few weeks. i played with one last weekend at the ct. show, and it was really cool. the 10wt. one was gonna come out for $250 i think, so maybe you could get an 8 for a little less. tfo also makes good inexpensive rods, as does echo, and a few other companies. the redington "redstart" combo might work for you , in the beginning. if you do get "hooked", it would be worth it to get into a good rod, and especially a reel with a smooth drag... or you will wind up losing a lot of fish if you're fishing in the salt. also, like these guys said, ebay can be good... but "buyer beware".
