If you are going high end a great setup in my opinion would be a Tibor Everglades with a Loomis Cross Current GLX. The rods are so good these days that to me the warranty becomes a differentiator. With the Loomis there are no hassles. Just give them a call and for about $50 you will have a brand new rod overnighted no questions asked. No warranty cards no waiting weeks for a repair. If you are more budget minded the TFO's, Albrights etc... are all great sticks for the money.
