Best way to pair a spinning reel with a spinning rod?

What is the best possible way to match rods and reels (specifically spinning rods and reels)? I get very confused with so many varieties on offer.

As one, you should always pair the rod's line weight (example 20lb line) with the reel you'll be using. The other and probably as important, height of spool either a spinning reel or casting, conventional reel etc..

Its as important the height of the spool for reasons as, line choking, this is a factor that would lowers your casting distance and creates friction with the line causing premature wear. Of course the above might be almost impossible unless you have a custom rod built. Many reels can weight more then others, does that mean if one weights more it can't be used on that rod compared to a lighter reel in weight, no.
Does it mean I'm relaxed about a light weight reel and rod, of course not. We're always looking for the lightest equipment we can find, in certain instances light isn't the ideal equipment.

You should pay attention to line weight(match reel line to rod), next make sure the reel's line coming off the spool doesn't choke as it enters the guide facing the reel, it doesn't have to be a perfect geometry in the case of OEM rods.

OEM rod manufactures aren't in the business of matching rods to reels and are improperly balanced.

Another answer said balance the rod and reel on your finger or fingers. This might be good for ultra light to medium rods. If the rod's tip is too heavy, it will tip over that direction. In that case you would remove the butt cap and insert a piece of lead weight to compensate the difference. In general it rarely goes the opposite.

A heavy tip rod will always tire your fore arm, this in tern might discourage you from fishing, specially for a beginner. So consider getting yourself a rod holder if you have such a rod and understand that because some rods are poorly built it doesn't mean all are.
