Are there fishing rods that can be used for both fresh and salt water?

I am new to fishing and am planning on going a couple times with some friends. Some may be freshwater everglades and others could be off a pier. It would be nice if I could get a rod that can be used for both. However, I don’t know rod and reel brands whatsoever. I’m a college student so It would be nice if the rod and reel didn’t exceed $60-70 total.

What are the best fishing rods made of ?

I have taken up sea fishing. I have two cheap telescopic rods and i want to buy a couple of two or three piece rods.
What do i look for? What is the best make? I have already got two sea fixed spool reels.
Most of my fishing will be off the beach or a pier.
I will be fishing the South East coast (UK) from Walton on the Naze around to Brighton.
I would also appreciate any tips as I am still a learner

What makes Different fishing rods better for different applications? casting vs spinning. flipping vs jigging?

I have fished for a long time, but always with combos that cost no more than $60. I want some real gear but having a hard time choosing. When your willing to drop $200 + it gets a little more complicated. Thanks for any answers.
