For all we know you could be fishing for Dolphin.

Not likely, it is Bass Resource, not Dolphin Resource.  ::)

@Ichigo, something in a medium power, extra fast, 6-6 to 6-9 would suit you well for spinnerbaits.  I personally use a St. Croix Avid.

Any spinning rod that is light, balanced, 6-6 to 7' long, fast action would work well. I like a bit heavier power here, and go with MH.

x2 on what JFrancho said, except I might prefer MH for spinnerbaits most often...but it depends on the manufacturer; the spinning HAS to be at least 7' for me.

As far as specific rods, I would suggest a Daiwa Zillion for the casting rod. I use a 6'9" MH XF for spinnerbaits and I LOVE IT. Another suggestion is the Kistler LTA series.  I don't think you have to spend a bunch for a spinnerbait rod. The rod just needs to be sensitive enough to be able to tell bites from grass/other crap but if you have the money, you won't be disappointed with the LTA or Zillions

For the spinning rod that range, I'd also suggest the Avid series from St. Croix.

If you look for used, clearanced, or auctioned rods you might be able to find some other spinning rod options in your price range like Kistler LTAs.

A couple models I think get good reviews in your price range:

Shimano Cumara

St. Croix Avid

Dobyns Champion

Loomis IMX

There are others, but these are the names I see frequently. I think a MH Avid would work great for your baicasting rod. A Medium X Fast Cumara in whatever length you like for the spinning rod.
