Loomis SBR 813 - for the 1/2 oz and 3/4 oz spinnerbaits I like to throw it's absolutely perfect.

6'6" or 7' medium fast action.  I like the 7 citrus stick for this, but they don't carry a 6'6" model yet, so I use a falcon.  Not sure the model but its 6'6" medium fast.

I generaly fish smaller spinnerbaits, 3/8 or less, but usually around a 1/4 so these rods are perfect.

I don't think you need the "perfect spinnerbait rod" to throw spinnerbaits, but I also think it depends on what you like to throw, and where.  I toss smaller baits with an Avid AVC62MXF, in a style I would call "sniper spinnerbaiting," targeting small holes in weeds, dock pilings, and other cover.  For most other spinnerbait work, like burning and slow rolling, A St. Croix LTB70MF works fine.  For stroking truly huge and heavy spinnerbaits, an Avid AVC70MHF works great.

I use a 6' Medium/Heavy Fast action that I built. I like the shorter rod for accuracy and low, under hand casts for a quiet entry.

Power Tackle Paragon 6' 10" MH MF. I use this for 3/8-3/4 spinnerbaits. Works for me. Also doubles as a deep cranking rod when needed.

defining the perfect rod for spinnerbaits is much harder than for other techniques where preferences are more universal. for spinnerbaits, some fishermen like 'em with mod actions, some like 'em fast and some like 'em extra fast. personally, i think the g.loomis SBR-813C spinnerbait rod is perfect for me...it is rated as extra-fast but it feel more like a fast to me. i want the tip to flex enough for the bass to inhale the spinnerbait but stiff enough for me to get a immediate hookset.

One perfect spinnerbait rod would be very tough... I toss spinnerbaits from 1/4 oz. to 2oz. and use several different rods.

Overall though, for most 3/8 to 1/2 oz spinnerbaits, I'm a big fan of the MBR 783 GLX or the MBR 843 GLX...
