Question 1st Rod, need help picking blank

I know what I want for a finished product. I want a rod with moderate to fast action, high modulus, 4 weight two piece rod. I also am only looking to spend no more than $125 on the blank.

Right now I have it narrowed down to the following four. I have placed them in the order I have ranked them from the limited knowledge I have. Any advice on them or others I should consider?

G Loomis GL3 - model F1084
Hook & Hackle XT51 - model HX864FB
St. Croix SCIII - model 3F864
Pacific Bay Professional Series - model PRF904B

Tight lines and sturdy knots,
