I'm starting to think I need a rod for deep cranks. I would be throwing DD22, Dredgers etc... in 16-22 fow. Baits could go up to 1.5 to 2oz or so.

So do I want a composite rod? I'm thinking a long stick too; maybe 7-6 to 7-11 area.

And what could that same rod double as? Heavy glides? 130 Ploppers?

And I would not want micro-guides nor spend over $150.

I would be using a Revo S 6.4 

 

Thoughts?

Anyone have something they would want to part with?

Thank you!

The 7'5 mh crankshaft is a great rod as well that can handle up to 8xd style baits. And big spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, and even a carolina rig when in a pinch.

Would the 7’5” model work well for big topwaters with treble hooks?

Are you meaning like big spook type baits or whopper plopper style?

Yes, spooks, whopper ploppers, and pompadours

Although I don't fish those baits, I think it would work very well. It is a rod with a fast tip but a deep bend through the top 2/3 of the blank. So it's still a cranking rod, but has the added benefit of the nice tip. It excells at 1/2 to 2 ounces.

I have a Lews David Fritts Perfect 9 ft rod.  It is Med heavy/ Moderate fast, and great for launching a 10 XD.  I bought it last summer and found that I don't enjoy throwing mega crankbaits as much as I thought I would.  

 

I'll sell it for $60 plus shipping if you're interested.  Other than a few scratches, it is in great condition, and only been taken out 5-6 trips. Also, if you want pictures just let me know.

Halo Deep Cranking Model, 7'11" MH. The I Rod's Fred's Crank launcher in the same size and action is also great.
