If anyone here owns a G Loomis SR 720, I think you will agree, these rods are sweet ! If you haven't had a chance to pick one up and 'fondle it' ;-) ...especially with a nice little ML spinning reel attached, please do if you get the chance.
So far as I know, this is the only 6ft, 1 piece, 1-4 lb micro light spinning rod, made by any company, anywhere, period ! And it's actually one of the cheaper G Loomis rods too. You might get one for about $90.
Anyway, with the exception of some of those really long poles for dipping in tulies and such, I can't imagine ever using a different rod for Sunfish.
Oh, and as a sidenote, these rods are still tough enough to land huge fish too. My biggest fish on it so far, was a 71", 90 lb'er... will post here....
Anyway, check out a G Loomis SR 720 ! I've owned 3 of them. Only had one broken by a 15 lb Halibut. Landed it just fine.... then it whacked the heck out of it with its tail... What do they say ? Ahhh Snap ! ;-) LOL
