Falcon Cara for Cranking

Recommended Posts

Im about to buy several Cara T7's for various techniques and I'm stuck on what would be best for cranking.  I'm not looking for a "do-all" crank rod, rather something to throw shallow to medium depth runners with.  I'm torn between the 7'med reaction Cara which is a die hard crankin rod, or their AOY Cara casting rod which is a 6'8mh/mf.  I really like the split grip of the 6'8 but I'm wandering if the moderate fast tip will be too much and I should opt for the reaction series for my cranking.  I plan on getting at least one of the former for walking topwaters, and like I said maybe a second to take care of most of my cranking.  I appreciate any advice yall might have.  Thanks,

Jake

Using the 7'ft medium reaction cara, am I going to be undergunned if I choose to throw a DT16?  I guess what I am asking is how deep, and how large can I go using this rod? Thanks.

the rod is rated at Lure Weight: 3/8-3/4. you should be ok.

will you feel like you just ran a marathon after tossing the bait all day?

not sure.

If I had the means right now, I would do exactly that. ^^.  However, even though only one cranking rod isnt enough to cover all my needs its going to have to cover most of them for a while.  Once I get the feel for what I like and dont like and see what there is left to be desired from having just one rod ill be more able to choose a second or third depending on what me needs are.  Im still stuck between the med and med/heavy reaction cara, its a tough choice.  Thanks for the input.
