That is a wide range, cost-wise.....

If you are after the typical 50-100# gulf yellowfins,
the Race Point 150 is an excellent choice, as is the Smith GTK-77. Good midrange pricing.
A great entry-level popping rod is the OTI OceanXtreme 40-60#, around $300.
It would be best to stay away from the high-priced, niche-specific popping rods until you know EXACTLY what you want in a rod. IE- stickbait v: popper, Boat v: shore fishing, lure size/weight, action, etc.
I can advise that you keep your rod length between 7.5-8 foot, this has shown to be the best compromise between castability, casting space requirements, & fighting power.
