Crankin' Stick

15 posts in this topic

The crankbait is one of my favorite techniques, and my top producer.  I'm looking into getting an actual crankbait rod.  I know that it needs to have a fast tip, but what about power.  Medium, MH .... what do you guy's prefer?

Thanks

I use a 7" med power fast tip.I also use a 6'6" med light for shallow cranks and a 7'6" med for deep cranks fished out on the main lake.Regardless I use med power for anything that has trebles.

On the contrary, crankbait specific rods are far from having a fast tip, slow ( moderate ) action is what they have. Power depends greatly on the type and ammount of cover existing where you fish.

Med power/Moderate action for shallow cranking.

Med power/Moderate-fast action for deep cranking.

Just my opinion.

I mistyped in my previous post, i meant a soft tip not a fast one.  I've looked at the BPS crankin' sticks.  Has anyone used these?

I just looked at mine and they are moderate tip.

I have 2 of the BPS crankin' sticks.I have only used the 6'6"(just got the 7')and I like it.The one thing I look for in a crankbait rod,other than proper power and action,is for it to have good guides such as Fuji.I don't feel the need for a top end rod for crankin'.I'm sure someone would disagree with that.I'm a guy who needs a setup for all the lures and presentations.I got a tight budget and a top end crankin' rod won't fit it.

Thanks for all of the replies

The main reason why I was drawn to the BPS crankin stick is because of the price.  I certainly can't afford the higher end models.

I have a St Croix fiberglass that I love for deep crankin. I need a good shallow crank rod. I'm lookin at a G Loomis (can't remember the number) for that.

The BPS rod is very nice and as you said the price is good. I've used my 7' for 2 years now with no problems. I really like the feel of it and will be buying another before the season starts.

I have a 7' Loomis Med Power Crank Bait rod, CBR843.  It is about two years old and I LOVE IT!  It has been a great rod and I would own another one.  With that said I and going to buy a BPS Crankin' Stink.  I was reading some reviews on the BPS rod and everyone raves about them.  Check the reviews on the BPS web site about he Crankin' Stick.  If I remember correctly one person said they use nothing but G Loomis rods and the BPS Crankin' Stick.  For $50.00 each I am will try one or two for myself.

I have a 7' med. Crankin Stick and I'm very pleased with it. You can't beat it for the price.

I want to buy a bait caster for my deep cranks( BPS Crankin stick), should I stay with the M power? And I will be getting a spinning rod ( Fenwick Eagle GT ) for my small cranks, should I get this rod in M power? Now if I fish a rattle trap should I go to a rod with more back bone? Or can I use one of these two rods for the rattle trap? I am not much of a cranker so any help would be great. :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/

I use my 6'6" BPS crankin' stick for traps.I would stick with med.power for deep cranks as well.I just use 7' or 7'6" for deep crankin'.

Here's a way to look at this factor:

What if you were to tie a horse to a 4x4 post with a small chain?

What if you tied a horse to a 4x4 tree with a bungee cord?

Which one would allow the horse to slide out of it's halter easier?

Am I making any sense?

Depends on how loose the noose is :)  ;D :o;) 8-)

Kidding aside, the correct answer IMPO is the chain would be easier!
