I'm looking to get my boyfriend a new rod for his birthday but I don't know the first thing about fishing. My first issue is that I don't know if he uses casting rods or spinning rods. He fishes for bass and I know he uses Stanley ribbit top toads and Realis pencil white spooks when he fishes if that would help figure out which one he uses. My second issue is that I don't know which brand of rod to get. I know he prefers a 7' rod but I don't know anything about the brands. I'm looking to spend between $100 and $125, what is the best rod I can get for that price range? Thank you so much!
