Sub-$400 casting rods

I'm looking for a short, sub-6' casting rod that will happily fish 10# CX Premium and 3/16-1/2oz lures. I fish from a paddle craft on screeks and rivers. Please give me some suggestions as far as brands, models or just product lines. Thanks!

Re: Best Deal on DT's

Forgive my ignorance, what is BBC? I ask because I assume you're not speaking of the British Broadcasting Channel, but rather a bass fishing forum.

Now, with that said, do you like your DTs in rivers for bass?

Re: Where can one order a JDM casting rod?

It doesn't have to be that rod. I put that as a reference point. I am wanting a shorter rod for canoe fishing and floating tandem, as we often do, six footers are really too long.

Where can one order a JDM casting rod?

I'm looking for a short casting rod such as the older MB F2-57X and was wondering where one can find these types of rods.

Urban/Suburban Creek Bass

I, like many of you, live within minutes of urban/suburban rivers and creeks which hold bass. I am curious what you would do when wading these hidden, under fished gems. I fished one of them before work from shore in a public park access a few months back and caught a couple smaller fish, one 14" wh...

Re: Favorite 6ft crank not named DT-6

For me, I like the Bomber 4A, 6A, Wiggle Wart and JSR5. Those are what I have caught bass on so far. I have a couple DT6 and a SKT MR I am going to toss this weekend.

Re: What is the best short casting rod?

Nice. I appreciate it. That Kistler looks like the cat's meow though. Perhaps toss an Alphas 103 on it, spool with 10# mono and hit the creeks, when the funds free up for purchase of course.

Re: What is the best short casting rod?

Any reason why the GLX rather than the IMX or GL3?

While we are at it, what reel would you put on a Kistler or the CR721?

Re: What is the best short casting rod?

I like that Kistler. Anything else you can think of? I've been looking for awhile. I like the lighter end of medium, probably from 1/8-5/8 at the absolute max.

What is the best short casting rod?

I am asking this because I frequently wade creeks with a baitcaster for largemouth here in eastern Kansas, as well as float in a canoe for smallmouth or spots. I am currently using some cheaper alternatives which are good rods for the money, but would like to have options for rods. My two go to rods...

Megabass Orochi X4 opinion

Do you have or have you fished with the Orochi X4 F2.5-64X4 Hedgehog? I am looking at a finesse bc rod and love MB lures so want to try their rods. The lures used would be 1/8oz heads with grubs or craws. Weightless 3" Senkos and hard baits to 1/4oz. If not that rod, offer me a few suggestions please.

Re: UL only?

I have fished everything but fly tackle this year. UL is, to me, more enjoyable.
