Bang for the buck $100 range- I feel the Star Stellar Surf is the best plus you get a lifetime warranty.
I also own a Tsunami Trophy and it is a very decent rod but I feel the Star is better. If just out of the Lami and St Croix I would go with the SC Triumph as I have heard the Lami Surf King's guides are abit cheap but maybe they have improved them.
If you do go with the Star try and get the 11' as the joint is more towards the handle and it effects the action less than on the 10' where the joint is in the center. But both are great rods
