They are out early this year.
One of many caught on a Plfueger fiberglass rod, reel and line that cost all of $35. I had to see if you could even cast it. I was really surprised at how well it performed for such a cheapo rig.
By no means do I endorse it; it’s a broom handle compared to my regular-yest-still-affordable arsenal, but it’s better than you think. Of course, I like fiberglass, so I’m bias.
