Have a pair of ABU conolon uptiders and they are great. Tried the Suverans and Daiwa uptiders that go for over £100 and not a lot of difference. Conolons go for about £60-70. Bit over your limit but i think they are great rods!
You are likely to get a secondhand Daiwa TDXU or Abu Suveran for not much more than that. Try looking on eBay, the classifieds section on this website and in local tackle shops, eventually you will find one.
HI, cot the Conolon 4-8oz and my brother has the surveran 4-8oz. Same action, both bend a lot but will handle big fish - had 11lb smoothys on then and 12lb roker. So not to bad. They also come in a 6-10oz format so they will be stiffer. All depends on what you want? Rod that you can have some fun with or a telegraph pole that will host a submarine to the surface
