Depends on the techniques. If i do one technique more than another that will be a big thing to think about

My most expensive rod i own is a spinning rod i had s o convert to a bfs casting rod.
The rod itself was 500 $ then i had a rod builder strip it measure it again to get the best result for its bending action.
strip and re-design the entire handle so it blends in with the other casting rods of that line up. Putting new microguides on it cost me another 380$
but it was worth it and it casts lighter than i expected.

Hey fish junkies and bait monkeys a like. New to the site and I would like to weight in on this topic. I am a sucka for the daiwa tatula series of rods having elites and regular. I also have a JDM Zillion flipping. I am not saying I wouldn't spend more for a rod I just found what I prefer.
I did how ever just placed an order for a new drop shot rod from megabass and if I like it as much as everyone seems to like them I may be switching my daiwa rods over
