Sage fly rods, GLoomis, most St. Croix, higher level Shimano, high end Abu Garcia.

Chinese-made stuff can go either way. Muskie Innovations rods are made there, and they're great rods. But I tried to skimp on my second Shimano baitcast reel and instead of a Calcutta, got a Cardiff. It was $100 cheaper, but looked nearly the same on paper. First day out it crapped itself, so it went back and I got another properly made Calcutta.
Thanks guys I checked internet same info, found out they make furniture and pencils. Troller I checked your link they have reel no price listed or how rated. I try to stay away from junk. Thanks again for your help.

Unless it's free, I'd reckon there's better reels for the money.
