I guess it depends on how heavy a rod you want, and what you want to pay. I have a small fortune in rods, but one of the best deals for your money I have found are the inexpensive BPS GS Series rods. They raised the price this year to a whopping $34.95, but still a good price. I have 3 of their 7'6" rods I use for flipping. 2 Hvy and 1 med/hvy. Since I mostly flip 65 pound braid when I t-rig its a good rod for me, but I have picked up plenty of bites sitting back and worming a plastic out in open water too with them. They key in my opinion is having a really good reel on them. I have a Quantum Accurist AC570PT on all three of them.
I have crushed the cork off the handle on one, but I have yet to break one.
One of the most sensitive rods I have ever owned is a Falcon "Low-Rider" heavy action, 7' Carolina Lizard dragger! It's a great rod for a lot less than some of the others,also made in the good old USA!
