Cheep high quality baitcasting rod and reel for my son this Christmas?

My son is really big into bass fishing now and he fishes tournaments and tours the US. I was wanting to get him the best high quality baitcasting rod and reel I could afford. He said that he wants some kind of Quantum reel, and some kind of split grip style handle rod. I have a low budget this year you guys so can you help a brother out?

I am looking for a fish finder that is good quality and not overly expensive? What is a good brand?

I have looked at the hummingbird 565 and since this would be the first fish finder I have bought I want to make sure that I am getting my monies worth. Is there any other recommendations from people who have used different fish finders and what they liked best?
