Other Uses For Crankbait Rods??

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a new Veritas Winch rod in 7' M power to use for cranking this year. I am pretty sure it has the moderate action.  This is my first "crankbait" rod. 

 

What else can i use this rod for?  I have it paired up with a Lew's Speed Spool in 5.4:1

 

Thanks

Sometimes when i'm in a pinch I've used my crankbait rod (7MHM) for 1/4-3/8oz spinnerbaits and swim jigs and never had any issues. As long as your not using a heavy wire hook that rod should work for these 2 lures. Maybe not ideal, but IMO it will work.

Topwater and maybe jerkbaits if you like the rod's action.

I use a heavy cranking rod for my Alabama Rig, too.

I use my 7'10" H power mod. action St Croix LTB "magnum cranker" for treble hooked, hard swimbaits that are within the rods specs (5/8 - 1 3/8's oz). Like the SK King Shad,  4" Spro BBZ-1, Jackall Giron, etc.....

I have a dobyns 704cb that makes a great jerkbait rod and a good topwater rod as long as the baits are within it's range . great for pop r's  , Giant dog x ect..

The Veritas would probably do well with topwaters,jerks, and smaller swim jigs.
