Best Spinnerbait Rod/Reel Set-Up?

Recommended Posts

So I have a 7'3" MH Carrot Stick with a Team Daiwa Spinning reel on, but I'm tryign to get another baitcaster, and I most often use spinner baits.  I think I'm leaning towards a Mojo Bass, but I wanted to see what you all would suggest if you had to stay under 300 for the rod/reel.

My Spinner bait set-up is a 7' MH Avid and a Pflueger Supreme and it ran me around $280 or so.  It's a great set-up, the avid is a bit heavy but the Supreme helps balance it out nicely

My spinnerbait setup is a GLoomis CR723GL2+Curado 200B/Alphas Type F.

    Mine is a All-Star Pro Series with a Quantum Burst casting reel in a 6.3:1 gear ratio.

I use a Powell 683C and a Curado E7 for spinnerbaits.

That's a FINE setup for less than $300 - and very multi-purpose as well.  Also consider looking on the flea market page for a used MH Crucial between 6'6" and 7' - very nice rods for the $$!

I like the crucials for anything but spinnerbaits for some reason.  I have a 6'10" Quantum KVD spinnerbait rod ( looks like the crankbait rod but all graphite) and LOVE it.  My partner in the last tournament made a few casts with it and claimed he liked it more than his Loomis spinnerbait rod!  I understand that is a bold statement.  I have a STX on mine.

I'm throwing Quantum's TE1160PT TOUR EDITION 6.3:1 reel on either their PTC6106FKV (6'10") or the PTC666FKV (6'6") both are Kevin VanDam Model rods. The PTC6106 will get the bait out there a ways and the PTC666 excels at tossing baits a shorter distance with accuracy. I'm VERY happy with both models but find myself reaching for the longer rod more often.

With some diligent Internet shopping both rods and this reel can be had for a very reasonable $$$. Like this . . . .

Man, thanks for posting these links! I've been looking for a new spinnerbait rod for the past week or so with a budget of about $100, and had pretty much settled on the 7' Mojo MH 'Spinnerbait' model. Instead, I've ordered the 6'10" PTC6106FKV for $80 from Simmons.

Grand total with shipping and insurance was only a few dollars more than the Mojo would've cost me from my local BPS.
