Heard good things about the KVD cranking rods, but have never used one.  They are about $150.  I have a 7' MH crucial crankbait rod that I love its great for mid depth cranking.  I just can't the casting distance with it I need for deep cranking.  So, I'm waiting for the shimano cumara 7'11 cranking rod to come out.  It looks awesome but its a little more than you are looking to spend.  BTW the crucial is also around $150.

Daiwa Mike Iaconelli Signature series MI781MRB 7'8" M 1/4-3/4 oz.

$130 and worth every penny, pulled many fish ranging from 1 lb to 12 lbs with ease. Have it matched with a Zillion Crazy Cranker.   I will put it up against any $200 rod on the market.  It is based off the Steez rods, not the same components but the same overall design.

Quantum Tour KVD TKVD745M 7'4 MH 3/8-1 oz.

or

Kistler Argon AFCB72C 7'2 MH 1/8-3/4 oz.

x2.  I have this exact rod for meduim to deep crankbaits.  Though real deep divers would be best with the 7'10" rod, the 7'4 is perfect for meduim crankbaits.

If you want to go under eight feet I would suggest a glass rod, there are many out there so I wont single one out.

I own the a KVD 7 10 and use it for all depth cracks that it can handle and its a solid rod. I have no regretts about it. Slow enough to keep a fish buttoned up but enough power to handle a big fish keep him moving towards the boat.  It allows really good casting distance and has great feel of the bait. I plan on adding a 7 foot model for medium cranks. Its defiently a rod I would like to have the entire arsenal of for cranks of all types.

I can't agree more about the St. Croix Premier Series crankbait rod. I have a 6'6 and love it! I also have a St Croix Mojo 7ft crankbait rod and it's fantastic as well.
