There is a vast range of spinning rods available today, with varying degrees in both quality and price.

So, I have done a huge amount of research and testing to narrow down the best spinning rods on the market at the moment.

I have also broken these down into two groups, so we’ll be looking at the best spinning rods that cost over $100, and then the best spinning rods for under $100.

So let’s get into this right away…

Why I chose the G. Loomis E6X as the winner of the best spinning rods over $100 category

Honestly, choosing the winner of the best spinning rod in the over $100 category was such a hard task, as all of the rods mentioned here are of exceptional quality, and there are more that are also pushing for a mention too.

But in the end, the G. Loomis E6X won our latest round of testing and is a very worthy champion.

The reason why the G. Loomis E6X just edged out the competition was because of the amazing attention to detail in the rod design, and then the flawless performance it provides.

The full cork grip handles provide a lot of comfort and also a feeling that you have complete control over the rod at all times.

There is also a lot of strength to this rod, so if you have a situation where you need to muscle a fish out of any vegetation it is more than capable of doing so.

The rod is incredibly light and responsive, which is exactly what you need for a lot of spinning techniques. The sensitivity of the E6X can only improve your hook-up rate.

Although price did not come into the equation when deciding the winners of the best spinning rods, other than to determine which category they went into, the G. Loomis E6X offers exceptional value for money considering the design quality and performance you are getting with this rod.

While the E6X spinning rod won the main prize, there are plenty of other exceptional spinning rods from G. Loomis that are knocking at the door. Here are some of them:


2. Shimano Zodias [2020 version] Spinning Rod

Model:No. of PiecesAction:Power: Rod Length:
ZDS69MLA1FastMedium Light 6’9″
ZDS69MA1 Fast Medium 6’9″
ZDS69MHA1 Fast Medium-Heavy 6’9″

ZDS70MLA1 Fast Medium Light 7′
ZDS70MA 1 Fast Medium 7′
ZDS70MHA 1 Fast Medium-Heavy 7′
ZDS76LA 1Mederate FastLight 7’6″


The Shimano Zodias has undergone a redesign back in 2020, and this updated version has seen some excellent improvements to this already popular spinning rod.

In the new Zodias rod, Shimano has incorporated state-of-the-art technologies passed down from their elite series of rods, along with all the original features that have made the Zodias a favorite among anglers around the world.

One of the main things Shimano has done with the new Zodias spinning rod is to increase its sensitivity by up to 30%.

They have done this through a number of enhancements such as the new hollow Carbon Monocoque grip, which greatly improves vibration transmission.


New Shimano Zodias

The high-grade blank Shimano has used for the Zodias rod features their strong but lightweight Hi-Power X technology, and it’s integrated with a full-carbon handle system.

The Carbon Monocoque grip coupled with a rigid CI4+ carbon fiber reel seat give you the most incredible feedback, you can feel the slightest of knocks and are able to make split-second strikes to set the hooks.

The new Shimano Zodias is extremely light, and whether you are tournament or recreational fishing, you will quickly see just how much casting ability this rod provides.

There’s no doubting the quality of this new Zodias spinning rod. Shimano is really pushing hard with their new releases this year, and the new Zodias 2020 rod will make the perfect pairing with their Vanford spinning reel.

PS70MLFSG1 Fast Medium-Light 7′
PS70MLF2SG2 Fast Medium-Light 7′


Out top listed St Croix spinning rod is the excellent Premier split-grip rod. It is a great example of being able to get a really good quality spinning rod at an affordable price.

The rod is extremely light, and you feel you are in complete control of the rod at all times.

The cork split-grip handle is very comfortable to hold, and throwing lures all day with this should not be a problem.

Although the St Croix Premier split-grip is light and sensitive to use, it also packs a lot of power.

The first time you hook into a decent fish with one of these you quickly learn that you can really put the rod to work and it will respond with a powerful performance.

This rod is built with quality components. A proprietary SCII premium graphite blank has been used on the Mojo spinning rod to provide that strong backbone.

The blank has been given two coats of Flex Coat® slow-cure finish which is why you can really lean back with confidence into those hard-fighting fish.

St Croix has a great range of spinning rods, and two have made it into this current list, but there are plenty of other good options as well within the St Croix range:


4. Bass Pro Shops Johnny Morris Patriot Spinning Rod

Model:No. of PiecesAction:Power: Rod Length:
JPA70MSF1FastMedium7′
JPA70MHSF1FastMedium-Heavy7′

The BassPro Shops Johnny Morris Patriot is a stylish-looking spinning rod, that performs just as good as it looks. Plus is it 100% made in the USA

They have really got the balance spot-on with this Johnny Morris rod. Even when you change reels to a different size reel, the balance still feels perfect.

The grip on the rod provides exceptional grip and comfort. I like the size of the handle too, it seems to fit really well into the hand and allows for extended usage without causing fatigue.

The sensitivity of this rod is another real selling point too. You can literally feel every little knock and the responsiveness of the rod is also very impressive.

The extra-high modulus RT5 Graphite blank is the main reason for the sensitivity of the rod, but the blank also provides a lot of power so you can really lean back into those hard-fighting fish with full confidence in the rod.

The Fuji tangle-free K guides feature tough stainless steel frames and super-hard SiC inserts for the ideal mix of strength.


5. St Croix Avid X Spinning Rod

Model:No. of Pieces:Action:Power:Rod Length:

AXS70MF1FastMedium7′
AXS70MXF1Extra Fast Medium7′
AXS70MF22FastMedium7′
AXS70MHF1FastMedium-Heavy7′

Another entry in the over $100 category from the excellent St Croix range is the Avid X.

As mentioned previously, this was a tough choice to choose from the St Croix range alone, as they have a wide range of both spinning and casting rods that are all of exceptional quality.

But we felt the St Croix Avid X was a very worthy entry as the design quality and attention to detail throughout the rod was clearly evident.

The reason why this rod is so good is that St Croix took their ever-popular Avid spinning rod and enhanced it further to deliver this Avid X rod.

If you like to fish with finesse, then this rod is a great fit for this as it is super-sensitive but also has a lot of power, so you can really control the fish as soon as you set the hook.



The rod uses a high-modulus SCIII graphite blank, which helps to keep the action very smooth. The integrated Poly Curve tooling technology provides a consistent thickness throughout the rod, which again adds to the overall performance of the rod.

Fitted with Kigan Z micro-guides that have slim-line aluminum-oxide rings and are extremely strong and durable, and come housed in gun-smoke frames. The Avid X also has a Fuji VSS reel seat with a twist lock fore-grip.

The St Croix Avid X spinning rod is light, very light in fact! The sensitivity of the rod is impressive, and will really suit those that prefer to fish by ‘feel’.

The split-grip handle was added, and the cork grip used makes it extremely comfortable to use. The Kigan micro-guides have also been optimally placed to increase sensitivity and improve casting ability.

It is this attention to detail that has made the St Croix Avid X an absolute beast of a spinning rod!


6. Shimano SE Teramar Spinning Rod

TMSXF76MH1Extra FastMedium-Heavy7’6″
TMSX80XH1Extra FastX Heavy8′

Another very worthy entry into the over $100 category went to the Shimano SE Teramar spinning rod.

What a great rod this is, and at a really affordable price too considering the quality and performance ability you get with the SE Teramar spinning rod by Shimano.

The balance of the rod feels spot-on, and you feel that you are in perfect control at all times when handling it. The grade A cork handle grip adds to the comfort, and the Fuji reel guide will ensure your reel is tightly secured ready for battle.

Casting is effortless with this rod, and also extremely accurate. Don’t be afraid to throw some heavier lead with this rod as well, it can handle it!

The TC4 blank on the SE Teramar has been designed so that it provides a great deal of strength without adding more weight to the rod.

The construction includes two layers of T Glass and a weave of high modulus graphite, which makes it so robust.

This rod uses Fuji Alconite guides, which are lightweight and durable. They also incorporate a Fuji reel seat, and all models have cork handle grips for extra comfort and more grip while you’re fighting decent-sized fish.

The Teramar SE range come in Medium Light models all the way up to Medium Heavy (ML, M & MH available), and lengths from 6.6’ up to 7.6’ (6.6’, 7’ & 7.6’ available)

This range will give you plenty of options as far as target fish and will give you the flexibility to pair them up with a wide range of reel sizes.


Spinning Rods Under $100

Now we’re going to look at the selection of the best spinning rods under $100.

*Disclaimer*some of the models in this range are over the $100 mark, but I thought it worthy of being in this category as there are several models available for under $100, and the quality you get for your money is exceptional

St Croix has updated the already excellent Triumph spinning rod, and the new 2020 version has improved design features that give you better feel and performance.


Specs for the new 2020 St Croix Triumph:

  • Premium quality SCII carbon
  • Sea Guide Atlas Performance slim aluminum-oxide guides with black frames
  • Sea Guide XDPS reel seat with eco-friendly sandblasted hoods
  • Premium-grade cork handle
  • Two coats of Flex-Coat slow cure finish
  • 5-year warranty backed by St. Croix Superstar Service

What I love about the St Croix Triumph is that it has all you would want in a spinning rod: Power, sensitivity, great design features, built from quality material and components, durable, and all at a very good price.

Plus there is a huge variety of models in the new Triumph range. So whether you want a 1-piece or a 2-piece, a preference for rod length, or specific power or action on the rod, you should be able to find what you need in one of the models in this range.

Cadence are relatively new to the fishing gear market, but they have certainly managed to get noticed for all the right reasons with some of their products!

The Cadence CR5 spinning rod is just one of their products that has turned a lot of heads and become a very popular option for many anglers after a good quality rod at a very affordable price.

Let’s start with the look and feel of the Cadence CR5.

When you first set eyes on this rod, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is a premium rod worth a couple of hundred bucks. It certainly looks and feels like it!

It’s very light to hold, and the grips are extremely comfortable so you can enjoy hours of flicking lures with this rod.

More on the grips on the Cadence CR5 spinning rod. You have an option here of either having a full grip or a split grip, depending on your preference. Plus, each grip comes with both cork below the reel seat and then EVA just above the reel seat.

Cadence has used a Fuji reel seat on the CR5 spinning rod, so with this quality, you can always expect a firmly secured reel.

It also comes with a 30-ton carbon blank which helps to make the rod as light as it is and also gives it the power and sensitivity it has.

The Ugly Stik Elite spinning rod is the premium version of the Ugly Stik GX2, and includes 35% more graphite, which makes it lighter and provides a crisper action to the rod.

This rod is extremely comfortable to hold, and when paired with a suitable spinning reel you can feel the balance has been really well thought out and integrated into the design.

The premium cork grips on the Ugly Stik Elite help to enhance the feel and performance of this rod. They are extremely comfortable to hold, so long durations of flicking lures can be done with ease without any fatigue setting in.

This rod is extremely sensitive due to the clear tip design, so you will be able to feel the slightest knocks on your lures as soon as they happen, which can lead to higher hook-up rates.

The compromise on the Ugly Stik Elite rods seems to be the guides, which some users have said they tend to wear out quickly. If this did happen, they could be replaced easily, but worth mentioning so you can make a more informed decision on this rod.

  1. I am learning a lot about many subjects that you have written about. I’m still a little confused and was hoping you could help. I want to purchase two rod’s and reels. I want to buy Gl loomIs trout rod’s and Shimano Stradic Fl’s. I want one set up for throwing lures and one for power bait & other bait’s. This is where I’m lost. I’m not sure what size and power I need for each type of fishing. I believe I want fast to moderate fast action. Can you help me with more information or some recommendations?

    1. Hi Jason, personally I would go with one really light setup, and one slightly heavier. So for the lighter setup I would go a 1000 size Stradic FL, and a 1-4lb 6ft rod with a fast action. Then for the slightly heavier setup I would go the 2500 reel and then 7′ 4-8lb and I would again go with the fast action (just my preference). It’s hard to say whether this would suit your preference, but I know this would work great for me.
