If i had $200 for a rod n reel, i'd get a used TDZ for $100-120 and a Corzza from MC.

I’ll pay for rarity and limited editions love having things others don’t . That being said I say 400.00 can get most of that

I end up being too worried about scratching up my higher dollar reels so end up fishing the mid range ones more often.
