Glad you're back into the sport...
For the money I don't think you can find better performance than Temple Fork Outfitters products. They offer rods that cover the entire spectrum of angling, both single and two handed, fresh and salt. The quality and performance of their products is excellent and value for the dollar is certainly there. The warranty is excellent as well.
The fly line weight requirement is primarily determined by the size of fly your fishing, the type and size of water and the type of delivery necessary. What species will you be fishing for and what type of water? This will help narrow down the appropriate length and weight rod inorder for you to focus your choices.
