Ok; sounds like you do not have unlimited funds, but need a good, reliable all purpose rod. I would suggest a Shimano Compre. You recently got into baitcasters so you really don't need the extra throwing power/distance of 7+ foot rod. I would suggest the CPCX68MHC. It is a 6'8" medium heavy rod with extra fast action, meaning that the primary bend is very close to the tip of the rod. Also, this rod is recommended to throw everything from a a 1/4 oz to a 1 oz lure. A rod recommended for lures anywhere from a 1/4 oz to 1 oz will provide you with a very wide variety of choices to pull out of your tackle box.
Oh yeah, DONT FORGET TO PUT YOUR RECEIPT SOMEPLACE SAFE. Shimano Compre comes with a lifetime warranty. I know it may not seem like you would break a lot of rods, but trust me, if you put your rod to the test and fish hard and frequently, you will have fish snap rods occassionally. With Shimano Compre, take the broken pieces back to Bass Pro and they wiil exchange it if they have one on hand or more likely give you a gift card for the purchase price. Order you another and 4-5 days later, your rod will arrive at the store with no shipping costs.
Don't get me wrong, these rods are very high quality for the money and do not often break, but if it does, you are not out $100+ . That is my suggestion, take it for what it is worth.
You can do anything with this set up from flipping 3/8 oz lures to throwing heavy musky lures.
