Anyone bought a new rod/reel last year, and have been recommending it to all of your friends? I've been fishing from short piers and banks all my saltwarter life, and I want to graduate to something with a little more ummpf Any and all ideas will be appreciated. I'm looking to spend around $200

you don't say if you use spinning or conventional so take the spinning side.
for 200 dollars you can get you a tica rod
and a shimano baitrunner 4500b or 6500b depending on where you fish i feel that combo
can go anywhere from turkey point to assategue and not overmatched.

Greetings Fishing Squid!

I also recommend the Shimano Baitrunner 6500, but I like the Ugly Stick Tiger Spinning Rod (7 feet, med action, one piece.) That way you have enough left over to buy a spool of quality 17-20 lb test line!

Fishing squid Hello, I brought the 11ft. Tica rod this weekend at the Salisbury fishing show from the guys at the Hatterasjacks tackle shop booth. The tica runs about $100. and is a real good rod for the bucks and matches perfectly with the shimano baitrunners for spinning or-525 penn/6500Abu-garcia for casting rod. Hopes this helps you out in the thought process :cool:
