McBride had me look at the FTU Brown and Green custom rods.
Good warranty as compared to a lot of rods.
Lord knows ( Well Maybe Kenny too) just how many discussions we have had on High end rods and their warranty or lack of one depending on what happened to that person.
Most makers will have some good deals for the Fishing Show in March.
Probably your best place to go try all the major player's rods in the same room and get the lowest price of the year on a good rod. Now remember the BS will get quite deep in the fishing show. Wear your waders.
IMO if you want an all around round that will throw corkies, tops, and a cork... that's probably going to be a medium action.
I personally like a medium light because I can throw tails from 1/16th oz to 5/8th oz skitter walks and if I need to 3/4 oz supper spooks. If you meant click cork and a assasin then you'll still be ok with a med light.
I use a diff rod for live bait with corks because with all the terminal tackle and the wieght of the live bait is going to be typically heavier... I Use a medium heavy for that.
I use a TTF Trout tamer 1/8th - 5/8th med light. I use a Kistler spinning rod in the same action to change it up a little.
Other rods mentioned are all awesome rods as well.
