What is a good fishing pole brand?

I’m trying to get a christmas present for someone and I know that he loves to go fishing so I figured I would get them a really nice fishing rod. However, I really don’t know that much about different types of rods so any tips on what I should get? ( there really isnt a budget, I’m looking more quality wise)

What brand of spinning reel is the best for bass fishing in Kentucky?

I live in Kentucky and can catch bass anywhere from 2lbs-10lbs. I like to fish with buzz, spinner baits and plastic worms. I want a nice spinning reel that can hold a significant amount of line with 10lb test. I am not wanting to pay a boatload of money. Shoot me some suggestions! Thanks!
