First thing is the number of ball bearings. Then price. Then line captivity.

For rods it is sensitivity first, action second. Reels, weight, speed, bearings, capacity and price.

rods: spiral wrapped guides, preferably micros after the collector, proper action for the technique intended and then price

reels: frame construction, preferably metal, gear ratio & spool depth/capacity(depending on intended technique), handle size and then price

For rods, I want to be able to feel the rod blank while I am holding it in a normal grip position. Sensitivity is most important. Not to concerned about the price. You usually get what you pay for. For reels, I prefer left handed reels.
The more bearings the better. The drag and reel must be smooth. Again I am not to concerned about the price. Hope this helps.

Rods in this order of importance: sensitivity, action suitable for intended technique, quality handle material / comfortable in the hand, warranty - reputation of rod company, price

Reels in this order of importance: Long term durability and being smooth for the long haul (not # of bearings as a cheap reel frame and / or lack of precision machining can be covered up by a bunch of bearings to tie everything together) is #1, availability of different sizes and left hand on bait-casters, Ergonomics related to how does the reel fit my hand and does it cause extra fatigue, warranty and reputation of reel manufacturer, price

rods/ sensitivity/ action and hand has to touch the blank not the handle.all so good tip. The guides need to stay on longer than a couple of months. Reels smooth/light/cast real good , durable and a lot of drag.
