St. Croix Premier cranking rod 7' Moderate action and medium power paired with a BPS David Fritts cranking reel with a 5.2.1 gear ratio. Excellent rod and reel! Especially for the price you can't beat that crankin reel.

Mine are old, but I like them. I have 2 different Team Daiwa IM6 Powermesh rods that I got somewhere around 1996 or so. Both are 7' telescoping rods. One is rated for 3/16 to 5/8 oz lures and the other is rated for 1/2oz to 1 oz lures. The heavier rod pairs with my old (but in great shape) Team Daiwa TD1-pi (5.1:1) and the lighter rod pairs with a old Team Daiwa TD1-hi (6.3:1). I use Trilene 10lb XT on both.

I don't crank a lot (or not as much as I should) so I don't have much tied up in these rigs, but even so they work well for me. Before these, I was all about glass rods, but I've come to like graphite better.

I use a 7'MH FLW rod. (this rod is no longer in production I believe, got it at Walmart back in 2000 for $30 and it is awesome!!! Best $30 rod ever, is as good as $150 rod).  I use a Shimano Bantam Citica that has had a few upgrades done to it with a 5.2:1 gear ratio.  I spool that with 10lb P-Line 100% fluorocarbon.

To change lanes for just a minute....Isn't Angler's World the greatest little tackle shop in the world? Jack has more stuff in that little building than Dick's and Gander Mtn. combined!!!

Any members here that are within 100 miles of Indy owe it to themselves to stop by this store. It's in Greenfield, IN. About 20 miles east of Indy.

OK, back in my lane now...
