Powell Guys

Recommended Posts

What rod do you guys like for deeper cranking in the Powells?  Usually throwing 5 or 6XDs.  I have quite a few Powells already but not a deep crankster, so what have you guys used and liked?

I can't tell you from experience because I don't use my Powell's for deep cranking, but I can tell you what I would probably use from looking at Powell's website.  Most of the Powell CB rods are a bit soft for my tastes for deep cranking though I do like them for shallow and mid-depth cranking.  I see that Powell's recommendation on the website is the Endurance 755 CB Glass/Composite for deep cranking.  It is a 5 power so it has a lot of backbone but a soft tip to avoid ripping out hooks.  And it is long enough to be able to get a good long cast.  The 804 CB might be worth a look as well, but from the description, it may be a bit soft for a lot of deep cranking.

I have the Powell Endurance 775CB.  IT is a MONSTER!!  That rod will fit your bill for sure!  I have no problems throwing the DT16s, I like the Rapalas.

The 755cb is a great rod, but if you can find the TW exclusive Powell Deep Crankin rod, buy it!!! You won't find a better deep crankier. Handles 5,6, even 10xds well.

The model I use is in the Max series, a 706CB. This rod is all graphite, no glass, but Powell doesn't offer this rod anymore in the Max line. I'm not sure if they do in any of their other series or not but if they do it's worth a serious look. It really handles 6XD's, DD22's, DT 20's, etc... very well but still has enough tip to keep fish pinned. I don't lose many fish with this rod.

Thanks for all the input guys! I like the feel of that 7'7" or 7'5" rod.  Not to big on the 8 footers.

The answer to any Powell question is always: "Duckett".

Hopefully that's a joke.
