Cranking Rod

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

    I am looking to add another set up to my arsenal.  I am in dire need of a crank/spinnerbait rod.  All of my other setups have far too stiff of a tip and it is beating me to death.  Im looking to add a topwater rod as well.  So tell me this.  Can one rod cover both techniques?  Either way, I'm looking for some reccomendations or info on what you use or are thinking about getting yourself for around 150.  I appreciate all your help.

I use a BPS Crankin' Stick with a BPS limited editionTournament reel. It is a MH/F and it is PERFECT for any treble hook lures and spinerbaits. I found that it makes a great topwater rod for treble topwaters. Can't beat the price either.

I like using a medium power, mod-fast action for lures with treble hooks and a m/h for spinnerbaits.

Uncle Leo has a Dobyns 684cb rod for $100. I have this same rod for crankbaits and topwater and I LOVE IT!!!  Here is the link for the rod for sale...

St. Croix Avid AVC66MF is my dedicated topwater/ jerkbait rod.

The length and power rating are good for working the lures. The

tip is soft to absorb some shock when fighting a fish. This is also

a rod I would highly recommend for spinnerbaits, buzzbaits and

medium weight crankbaits.

The MSRP is $170, but the Avids are occasionally on sale.

Reed's offers free shipping and there is no sales tax:

Spinnerbait, crankbait, topwater...  

decide which of the 3 you need/want most and buy it.  Try it for the other techniques and see if it will work.  Some people will say you need 3 seperate rods and others combine 2 or 3 in a single rod.  But none of the responses will help you that much until you try it...  since it's a feel and preference thing.

To me, each of those is a separate rod, but each of them would also double with another technique, not listed.

I use a 6'10'' MH Carrot Stix Gold for shallow-mid cranks and topwater; 7'MH Lucky Craft Cranking Rod for deep divers; and a 7'MH Avid for spinnerbaits.  I like a little stiffer of a rod and faster reel for spinnerbaits
