What Power And Action Is Ideally Suited For Square Bills?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to start throwing more squares since I primarily fish a shallow, quick moving river. My question is what power rating and action rating would be ideal for throwing 1/4-1/2 oz. square cranks. I know for other cranks you want either a M or MH/Mod or Mod-Fast. I just don't think that would be good, but I honestly have no idea. Therefore I'm looking to you all to set me straight.

Thanks,

Coak

Med power is sufficient. If you're crashing cover I like a little faster (as in mod/fast) for the shallow cranks.

Thanks all for the input.  I have rods in both med/mod and m/f.  That is the reason for my question.  I will try the m/mod and see how it handles.  Thanks again for the help.

Even with baits like the 4S and 2.5 size?

I like the larger square bills so I prefer a MH with a mod fast action, a fast action is ok on a medium power rod as it will have enough forgiveness to keep you from pulling the hooks out. I found the moderate action cranking rods to be too soft for my style but depending on how you use the square bill it is an option.
