I have a 7' M falcon t7 cara rod that I use for topwater and crankbaits. When I catch a fish it has no backbone to it. I think I want a MH with a moderate or moderate fast tip but I'm not sure. I want this rod to be able to throw a 15+ crankbait but have a soft enough tip for topwater lures. Any SUGGESTIONS??????

I always know what's coming when someone asks about a deep cranking rod ! :) LOL

I still recommend the Powell Composite Deep Cranking rod, 7'11....best cranker I've ever had. I swear you are going to get me curious enough to try this Lamiglas one day. Still won't be replacing my Powell though, I love that rod!

yep, I love the Denali jw843 for crankbaits, I throw warts down to DD-22's with it . even squarebills ,just a superb rod. For me I like a shorter, quicker rod for topwater..

Personally, I think if you're going to try and combine cranking and topwater with one rod, I wouldn't go over 7 ft. Even a 7 ft. rod can be hard to work a topwater with when you're holding your rod tip down. I crank with the Denali Jadewood 842, 7 ft., Med, Mod., rod., but I don't do any real deep cranking. The 843 MH, previously mentioned, would probably suit you better for that. The Denali Jadewoods are $99 rods, and I personally don't think you'll find a nicer rod in that catagory.

If you like the Falcon Cara line, take a look at the Composite Cranker II, I use this rod for my deep cranks, and like it very much.

Is this rod still available? I've been looking and can't find one.

This rod is now the "XL705 Glass". I hope that helps.

Deep crank'n I call 15'+, I love the AVC70MM ST. Croix. Avid, works great for me, if I was going to run 20+ maybe think about the AVC70HM, but think it is a little heavy for Bass.

Just got a St.Croix Mojo "Big Crankster" and love it so far. Soft tip to really fell the bait so I can crawl it through the rocks and wood but plenty of backbone to move a big fish with a long handle to help launch a bait and then give you plenty of leverage so you don't get worn out cranking the big baits.

I don't know how good of a rod it would be for topwaters but what I look for in a topwater rod and what I look for in a cranking rod are very different things.

Ideally, top water and deep cranks are two different rods. For top water I use A St Croix 6'8'' MXF rod and for deep cranks a St Croix AVC 7' HM. I do have a St Croix AVC 7" MHM that I use for shallow to medium cranks. The 7' AVC MHM, would handle both your top water and 15' cranks although not the best fit for either technique. You already have a good top water, shallow crankbait rod so I would concentrate on a rod for just deep cranking.There are already many good suggestions for a deep crankbait rod.

My deep cranking rod is a Cabelas Prodigy PDC705-1 7'MH/MF 1/4-1oz and it handles SK 6XD's pretty well so far.
