After looking at a rods in every price range at all of the big stores such as Academy, Gander Mountain, Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, and Walmart, I decided to purchase two St. Croix Premier casting rods from Swanson's. It was the right decision as the rods are beautifully made and a great value at $129.95 each . These are superior rods in all respects. They're lightweight and nicely balanced with a good backbone. The tip is just right, in my view, for Walleye jig fishing. Also, they were drop shipped, free of charge, directly from St. Croix. Consequently, they were free of any bumps or bruises from being handled by a bunch of careless customers. You can pay a lot more, or a lot less, but these are really the value leader, in my opinion, in fishing rods. Finally, the premier is made in Wisconsin whereas most of the other rods I considered were made in China. That's a plus in my book.
