Ok, after some searching I was unable to find a spinning rod that would support about a 2oz swimbait. The only reason it has to be a spinning rod is because my brother absolutely hates casting gear. Anyone know of a decently sensitive rod that can handle such a task? He was also looking for one that can toss a heavy 6oz swimbait as well.

Might look into some of the Inshore rods. I have a Shimano Calcutta, 7'6" that I sometimes use for the lighter swimbaits in the 1 1/2 to 2 oz range. I would check e bay , ect. Although mine isn't a spinning rod, they do make them.

For swimbaiting with spinning gear, Fish Chris is the guy you want to talk to. Try sending him a PM if he doesn't comment on this thread.

Shimano Teramar. Honestly, I think that is the best value rod I have ever seen for fresh or salt. Seriously, they're very good rods. I use them for catfishing with up to 3 oz. sinkers.

The more I think about it, I might get the 7'6 H for swimbaiting that would double as a catfish rig.

I only fish spinning gear and being mostly a saltwater fisherman I do own rods rated for 2 oz lures. A number of companies make inshore rods that would work fine, they come in all price ranges.
