    I'm in the market for one rod for bonefish and one rod for tarpon. I'd prefer to buy a used rod that is very clean to cut down on the costs a bit, unless someone thinks there are very good budget rods for both species. Any advice is appreciated.

    To be honest, and this is from experience, the Redington Pursuit 890-4 ($129) is one of my favourite tailing bonefish rods.
    It's recently been replaced by the Path, which is a little faster and has a slightly faster recovery, along with nicer components and it retails around $139.
    This would be a great option to keep costs down while still getting a great rod. It's no Xi3 but it's also not 7 bills and will still catch you bones.

    For tarpon, I got nothing!
