Rod Reccommendations

Recommended Posts

Im looking for a medium powered cranking casting rod, preferibly between 6-7 feet with a moderate/fast action. I like rods with reel seats that have the through blank, and split grip. what are some good cranking rods like this in the 80-100$ price range?

http://www.lews.com/rods.php All of the Lew's rods are good products. They're are some different rods that aee in your price range and have the features you want. The Custom Speed Stick and David Fritt's series are good rods

Your price range kind of limits you. The BPS Extreme rods are decent for the money. I've heard the Veritas is a decent rod for the money. If you can spend a little extra, I'd look at the SC Primier rods, but I believe those are full grip.

I agree on the premier. You could get one at TW for $100 with the Black Friday sale... Really nice rods for the money. I would definitely reccomend them over the veritas and lews rods mentioned.

Lamiglas Excel II 7' MH-MF glass,$ 99.99!! This rod comes in to TW and within a week gets sold out, the reason is the blank, if you like the action of glass it is hard to beat Lamiglas. I have an old Quantum Tour Edition USA that was made in America with an E-Glass blank made by Lamiglas, it is an incredible cranking rod but the only drawback is when it was made they used the old Fuji reel seats that weren't blank through along with a large fore grip and large guides and at 7' with a MH power it makes for a heavy rod. The new Lamiglas I was told is much lighter than even the original Excel Glass rod which was also kind of heavy, so that may be one to look at as it is right in your price range with a lifetime warranty.
