Do It All St. Croix Crankbait Rod?

Recommended Posts

Is there one in their line that can throw a square bill well, but also dive about 15' and not be overpowered?

I have a St Croix mojo bass 7 foot medium heavy with a moderate action I throw square bills an 1/2 ounce traps with it I haven't tried a deep diver on it yet but the rod rating says it will handle up to a 1 ounce bait

Agreed, pretty much any of their 7' MH/M rods will do what you're asking. The 15' baits are going to be the very edge of their range of baits you can fish comfortably with them though.

Wow, thats a great question.  My first reaction was NO, not any that they make anymore.  The old premier glass rods (black blank or the older blue blanks) for sure.  The 2 rods that I would say that can handle both baits that your asking about as well as lipless cranks are: St Croix Premier Casting 7'0 Med Heavy Moderate or the St Croix Legend Xtream 7'2 Med Moderate.  There are 2 choices in 2 different price ranges out of the St Croix line-up.  I have over 40 St Croix rods and I think the crankbait rod that can handle the largest range of baits is the premier 7'0 MH MOD.  However, its my least used cranking rod because i use bait specific rods more often.

Not any that I have had. I had the 7' MH/Mod Mojo....it was good for 1/2 oz lipless baits, 1.5/2.5 sized squarebills, and mid range bait up to about a DT-10. It was slightly over-matched with 5xd's, but not to the point where you couldn't throw them on that rod ..............6xd's/DT-16's.......forget it.  My other St Croix Cranking rod was a LTB 7'10" H/Mod. "magnum cranker" that rod was better for the deeper baits ( 6xd/DT-16) that the MH Mojo was not good with, but was terrible with anything other than the big, deep diving stuff.

cbfishalot hit on the head with the st.Croix premiers I have a boat load of all types and wouldn't trade them..i don't normally throw a crank at that depth and don't think the premier crankbait rod would handle that depth but just fine at shallower depths..

Look at the AVC70MHM Avid. Specs are 3/8 to 1oz.

I have an Avid AVC70MHM. Works fine for throwing either type bait do long as it is within the range.
