You guys want to see a really nice rod for under 60 bucks?? If you live near a Dicks Sporting goods take a look at the new field and Stream offering, I was very impressed.  For 59.00 I couldn't resist.
Got a 7'6" telescoping MH Extra Fast tip casting rod for the price and this think can't weigh more than 5 oz.

For the most part I would have to agree with the G.Loomis crowd. I love the IMX rods and the GL3 rods for that matter. IMX for sensitive fishing and the GL3 for things like Cranks and Topwaters. However there are exceptions for me. For example I would not trade my Quantum Tour PT 6'10 heavy rod for any rod out there for it is by far my favorite rod for casting and  pitching of jigs. IMO, the best is no different then what you conciser the best worm, crank or anything else is. It's what you have confidence in and what is comfortable for you.

My fishing partner is a Lamiglas nut. My pond hopping buddy is a Falcon nut. There is enough Shimano nuts here to keep Shimano in biz for the next 100 years. It's all about what you have confidence in. One thing I have noticed is that like me, a lot of the people I fish with have at least one rod from another company in there line up. G.Loomis may make the best worm rod for example, but IMO they could not make a good frog rod if there life depended on it. Per this example you can see the best is not always the best for every situation.

I did not see anyone mention the Wright & McGill Skeet Reese Tessera Rods.  Any feedback on them?  I picked up the 7'6" Swimbait/Carolina Rig rod at a local boat show for $65....retails around 89.99.

Feels good in hand but haven't done any real fishing with it yet.

the best quality rod for me is a Deep South Rod. the sensitivity is great and they are strong as they come. so check them out for a great rod.

IMO I have to go with the powell 683C,Best all around rod in its 140.00 price class. and that coming from a guy that used to only fish IMX's and GLX's ;) But like others have said its all personal preference

For the price and the feel of the Vendetta's has been great.  But i agree that this is just a great rod debate.  I have this debate on the boat with a friend of mine almost every weekend.  He is a hardcore G. Loomis man and I have always used All Stars until now.  His big thing is the weight issue between the two.  I think that every person should use a rod that is comfortable them.
