what rod for steelhead?

looking for 9'6" - 10' 8wt rod, what would my best bet for the money be around $200-250

ive tried a few different rods and have yet to find one i like. mostly all lower end rods though. i had a sage launch which isnt to low end, but i consider is low end for the company. and ive had a couple models from redington.

right now i have a beulah 9'6" 6wt, very nice casting rod. and i would like to find something that feels the same but only in a 8wt.

thanks alot for the help
