Ok, here goes nothing.
What are you planning to use it for? Bass, trout, or other.
What kind of baits? crankbaits, spinners, or bottom contact like jigs or t-rigs.
What kind of cover are you planning to fish? Rock, wood, or grass.
Clear water, dirty water, rivers, lakes. or streams?
Deep or shallow?
It is so hard to make a decision without a purpose for the rod. A general purpose rod that can cover most of these is hard to come by and usually just gets by with most of them.
If this is just one of a few rods you have then I would step up on the price range.
I have what I call a good general use spinning combo, but it is out of that range.
It is a Sierra 703sf with a Shimano Sahara FS 2500. The wife has one also and uses it for everything from spinnerbaits to dragging light jigs. It has enough sensitivity for bottom contact but enough tip action to handle fish on treble hook baits.
When it comes to Bass fishing sensitivity is paramount to feeling those subtle bites. That is why a more expensive rod is important for baits like jigs and t-rigs.
