Crankbait Rod Advice

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,  I'm looking to get a new Rod and reel for crankbaits.  I'll be getting another Lew's Tournament Pro for the reel as I love that reel but I've recently started to delve deeper into crankbait fishing.  Mainly square bills but that could change the more I get into it.  So my question is what would be a good Rod for crankbaits between $100 and $150.

Also what type of line is preferred.

Any help is appreciated thanks guys!

I used to have a mojo glass and really regret selling it.  Great rod.  Currently I'm using a klx CRT, but haven't used it much yet.

I either use a moderate glass rod paired with braid, or a graphite rod paired with mono. If you use a glass rod with mono/graphite rod with braid I find that there's too much/too little stretch. 

I've heard that the Lews cranking rods are excellent for the price

Me Too ~

Sometimes I'll use a Composite rod with braid & a mono leader.

I strive to be a well rounded & versatile Cranker.

The Mojo Big Crankster has served me well for deep divers and big squarebills. I really like my Academy Composite Cranker for squarebills, but I stumbled across some Quantum KVD crankbait rods at Academy about a month ago and they had the 7' MH/M on sale for $30. I couldn't pass that up and really like the rod so far. I'm using it alongside the Ethos as a squarebill/mid depth rod.

I've had good experiences with the crankin stick and the new micro guide crankin stick. Heard good things of the Mojo Big Crankster on here

Phenix X series glass or composite, but, no matter which brand you go with definitely give a glass or composite rod a try.
