You'll likely get a lot of different answers....such as St Croix Avid and Shimano Crucial et al. I'm going to bet the overwhelming response will favor the Avid.  Lots of good ones in that price range and some might even be less than $150.

St Croix Legend Tournament  $149.99 Sportsman Warehouse by my house.  They have a couple left without the split grips.

St. Croix Avid...

"All-around" with the emphasis on soft plastics and jigs: AVC70MHF

"All-around" with the emphasis on treble hook lures: AVC66MF.

Another to consider, AVC68MXF.

Agree wit RW, the AVC70MHF is a great rod, IMO Very Sensitive and a great price. Also the Shimano Crucials are nice, or keep your eye out for a used IMX.

X2 I love my 6'9" Zillion! Laser accurate, great feel, awesome looks. What more could you ask for? Also have an E21 Carrot Stix Gold that is awesome!

Going to be used for crankbaits

Avid AVC70MM. This rod loads up for some of the longest casts

you will ever make. You will like everything about this rod for light

and medium weight crankbaits. Although I use a different set-up

for deep divers, this rod will handle them, too.

Then I wouldn't worry with "the most sensitive" rod.... haven't seen a rod yet that wasn't sensitive enough for cranking- glass rods included. If you really want this for cranking then look at moderate and mod-fast actions.

RW,

This is a classic case of preference.... I had the (2C70MHM) MH mod St. Croix and i felt like it was too light for any big cranks. My current 7' H, mod-fast will handle small, light cranks better for me than my 7' MH, mod handled the big stuff. So for me the H, mod-fast was the better choice for all cranking. (and lipless baits)

flechero,

If a fellow is going to fish big, deep diving lures on a regular basis,

he needs another rod & reel combination. For me that's a Lamiglas

SR704R/ CTE200GT. However, the AVC70MM will work for occasional

heavy lifting.

that's the "OTHER" orange rod, right?   ...lol

I agree with you (either of our set ups will pull double duty just fine) but was emphasizing the personal preference part of it.
