I'm St Croix all the way. I keep my sponsorship deals very limited, and don't accept or solicit sponsorship from companies unless their product meets the standars of full time guiding, but I worked hard to get on St Croix's pro staff since I like their product so well. The Premier series is around 90 bucks retail, but better than many more expensive rods. I use the Avids, which are higher yet but also better than rods twice their price, and all have the lifetime warranty. The company service is excellent. The 6'8" Medium Extra Fast is the sweetest medium action rod I've ever used, and there is no other medium action rod like it by any other brand. Fast tip, but plenty of backbone, and still light. Try one of the 68MXF if you can. Berkley does have some good rods for the money, but I find All Star and Castaway to heavy for my taste. Be sure to test them, the rod really is important.
