Now for your decision. I like a 6.2:1 for my cranks because it allows me to reel fast or slow easily. IF your price range is around $320 for both as it seems in your first post, then I would spend a little more on the rod than the reel. I would get a Lamiglas XCF705 as your rod. That can throw almost all the cranks you need well and spinnerbaits! For the reel I would look at the Shimano Citica 200G in 5.5:1 or 6.5:1 as well as the Lew's reels. Those reels are all nice, I own a Tournament Pro but have fished others. Just pick the one that fits your budget. Good luck fishing and welcome to Bassresource!

The comments above aren't off base nor do I feel they are rude. I believe your mis-understanding of the replies is based on the fact that you asked a very general and non-specific question.
Such a question such as I want to throw 1/2 ounce lipless crank baits into heavy cover using braid is going to get a totally different answer than I am planning on throwing 1/8 once lipless cranks into river current. Maybe a little more info or specifics on your part may help with the answers. Good luck in your search.

Yeah, need a little more info. I don't like the same rod and reel for traps that I use for cranks.
I have multiple rods/reels/line combos for different kind of cranks. If I had to pick one size to accommodate most cranks, I would probably go for a 7'4" med/mod rod.

I use a shimano curado 200E5 reel mostly on this rod.
Just a tip for you as far as the forums here go... A great group of guys are here, and all are willing to help you. Some folks have a very direct approach. Do not take offense, rather spend some time here and learn from all. When you ask a question, you will likely get many different opinions. It is then your job to take what folks have kindly suggested and use that information to fit your fishing style and location.
Welcome to the forums. Be sure to let us know which rod you picked and how it works for you.

Medium depth cranks I use a 7ft M Ethos, a 7ft Powell Endurance MH/F, and a 6ft 6in M Ethos. Two have Calcutta reels loaded with 12lb suffix deep cranking line. The 6ft6in has a bps pq loaded with 20lb spiderwire stealth line.
For Shallow cranking I use 2 7ft ethos rods. Both with Calcutta reels loaded with 20lb spiderwire Flourobraid.
For lipless cranks in grass I use a 7ft MH TDZ. With a TDZ BBS loaded with 20lb Flourobraid.
For everything else lipless related I use one of my medium depth rods and one of my shallow depth rods.
