Recommended Posts

so i took my good C3 (older one) and i took my other C3(newer one but broke) and swaped parts so now my newer C3 works perfectly!!  but i dont have a rod for it.  i would like to get something decent for cranks.  nothing longer than 6'6"  i am looking for something in the $75-$100 range...any suggestions?

thanks

Did the C3 I sold you break?? Let me know if I  need to do anything to make it right with you. As for a rod a BPS Cranking stick is a great cranking rod in your price range, I would go with the MH as the M is a bit too limber IMHO.

If you can find one on sale, St. Croix Avid AC66MF. Although this is rated Fast Action, the tip is soft and is appropriate for all treble hook lures. This is a fine rod for crankbaits, but you will particularly like the way it handles topwater lures and jerkbaits. I think you will also like this rod for spinnerbaits and buzzbaits. With the exception of soft plastics and jigs, this is truely an "all-around" stick.

I use the David Fritts American Rodsmith rod paired with the BPS David Fritts Reel and I love it. I don't think I will ever replace it with any other rod when it comes to Deep Cranking.

I have the 7'6" rod and I wish I would have gotten the 7'11".

I am probably in the minority, but IMO those Fritts glass rods are too damned whippy.  Granted, I have not fished them, only played with them at the stop & rob.

i dont throw alot of deep cranks...actually i dont even own a deep crank...but i like to throw shallow divers and lipless cranks alot....this would probebly also double for spinnerbaits...but i dont throw them much either.
