I've got the IMX 812c jbr, the model that preceded the IMX Pros. It works great. Nice short handle that doesn't get in the way when working the bait. It's rated up to 3/8oz but I can still throw 110s with a flick of the wrist or roll cast. With a fish on it loads nearly to the handle but has a nice tip for working the bait. I find it to have poor recovery on harder rips but that's my opinion. I actually use it a lot for squarebills and the whopper plopper 90 on a river for smallmouth.
Just picked up a 2018 Poison Adrena 6'6 ml that will also have jerkbait duty come next spring. It feels like a medium powered Loomis but I have yet to fish with it.
Someone mentioned the NRX 843 on the last page for jerkbaits. IMO that rod is too stiff unless you're using heavier gauge hooks. I like mine for 3/8th spinnerbaits.
