Sonik SK3 . Greys GRX-S , AFAW are all excellent rods around the 120 quid mark , or you could pick up a quality 2nd hand century or Zzplex which are in a different league to everything else

After buying one myself, I could reccomend abu's Hellbender rods. I bought the 12' 8" hellbender M rod. Its a good rod for casting, will easily put a 170g lead and bait 120yds, and has brilliant bite detection.
Has a "through action" tip, but has quite a stiff butt to give good distance, so will cast soft baits very well like crabs and not rip ragworm from hooks.
Also another good bet might be a Shakespeare Salt MX??
The thing is, there are lots of rods in that price range and every person will have their own reccommendation for what suits them but it doesnt mean they will suit you
