Cranky

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on concentrate more on cranking bass and I want to know what's a good cranking rod.  I'm willing to spend from $100 - $170 for this rod.  I'll be throwing anywhere from 4 ft to 10 ft diving cranks.  

I also heard that glass rods are better for this fishing technique as well.  

Let me know what you would recommend, thanks!

I was also looking for a rod like that for Christmas, I ended up ordering a Powell 704CB. I found nothing but good reviews on these rods but I wont get to use it for another 2 days! ;) ;D

I have this rod paired with a curado 100D.  This is a GREAT for shallow to medium divers along with lipless cranks and jerkbaits of all sizes.  This rod is able to throw deep divers, but I feel it is underpowered for the resistance of a DD22.  I've been able to pull in 5-7 #ers pretty well.  IMO it's a good CB stick.  If you see yourself throwing deep divers more often, i would suggest getting something a bit more powerful.

I would take a serious look at the Kistler Magnesium Series Crankbait rod.  It is one sweet rod for sure!

I use the Lamiglas SR705 for the medium cranks. I highly recommend this rod to anyone. I also used it for deep divers until I picked up a Dobyns805CB. I hear Powell make a great CB rod as well.

I really like my 7'2 M parabolic Carrot stix for all my cranking needs. I use shallow to medium divers on it. Very sensetive so you can feel what structure your cranks on or in.

With you, it hasn't been a trip  than I haven't take mine since I got it.
