The best one I've owned is the Powell max 3d 683c. Check put the old tt review on the discontinued max version. It was designed based on the glx mbr tapers and has the tip section of the 3 power mbr rods and the backbone of the 4 power. They threw everything from 1/4 total weight to 2 ounce swim baits during the review and said it's one of the most versatile rods they've used. I love mine. The tip loads and casts well and it has plenty of backbone to get fish away from cover. I use mine for all single hook reaction baits from 1/4-3/4 and it can handle an ounce, but I rarely go that heavy unless I'm on deep structure and then I use a longer rod. The 6'8" is perfect for accurate roll casts, side arm casts and still has enough length and backbone for good hooksets. It is also a good shallow crank and lip less rod around cover, and plenty sensitive for bottom contact. And the best part is is that Sheltons clothing has them for 100 dollars!

my daiwa tatula 6'10" MHF is the best all around rod i've ever used. i have plenty of other higher end rods that beat it out at one application or another, but if i was to need just one rod to pull multiple duties it would be the tatula.

I love that rod. Easily best bang for your buck. Too bad I'm constantly upgrading my gear. I got mine for less than $100 and was THOROUGHLY impressed.
