I have 10'6" 9wt St Croix Legend Ultra and 10' 7wt St Croix Legend Ultra. I used a 10'a lot this Summer for fishing from a pontoon on lakes. 10' rod has distinct advantages. The ability the throw a popper with dropper is much more easily facilitated. Fishing from a pontoon sitting on the water gives you the ability to keep the line up when casting. If you fish moving water it gives you great line control. A 7,8,9 wt 10' will also give you a good steelhead and light saltwater rod.

Personally speaking, I'm a big fan of Cabela's rods. Good pricing and the warranty speaks for itself.

Here's a rod in your price range that sounds like what you're looking for.

Jdad - can you put that 10'er on a prop rod with some cut bait???

The older ones, yes. The newer ones, probably not.

Take a look at the LL Bean Quest 2 and Streamlight rods, too. They definatly seem faster than what I'd like (how's that for ambiguous), and they're certainly cheap and a lifetime, no questions asked warranty.

Yes its plenty fast. Interestingly, I note on St Croix website that they still have the 10'6" 9wt, but are not listing the 10' 7wt or 8wt. This is interesting as they had a 10' 8wt on back order for me a long time and it was just delivered a week or two ago.
