Really before I started specialist squid fishing, I got away with a Shimano Catana 7ft rod ($50.00) and it was matched to one of my bream spinning reels.
For spinning for bonito, as much as I like Daiwa the extra gear ratio of the Shimanos would be better, something like a 2500- 4000 sized Stradic or Sustain.
For rods check out the G Loomis Bronzeback range

ugly stik gb1800 medium action 6-8.5kg rating....it's actually one of my snapper rods.. LOL
and my reel is a eurostar baitfeeder rxc 50 spooled with 2.7kg maxima mono and I use a bit of 8lb flurocarbon leader
thats it....not even a $200 outfit and it sorts out the squid in my neighbourhood not a worry.

or if you want something a little stiffer: 8'5"
You its a great rod for squidding, i personally use this rod. You can also chase tailor, bream, bonito etc with it as it has a very nice curve to it yet it is still nice and crisp. For a reel i probably wouldn't go a sedona, like budda said i would go for a sustain or even better a stradic. If you want to go cheaper i would look at a penn affinity as these have a worm drive ossilation which means it wraps the braid onto the reel spool more evenly which is important when making long casts with light braid.
If you need anymore info on this rod or anything else feel free to pm me mate,
