Powell 704CB?

Recommended Posts

Looking for a good all around crankbait rod that can handle 1/4-3/8 oz baits (mostly squarebill cranks and lipless red eye shads).  Saw this Powell 704CB on TW.  Anyone have experience with it?

DISCLOSURE:  I have not fished the Powell CB rods, but I do fish mostly small & shallow crankbaits.

My only concern about the 704 would be that it may not load well if you throw primarily light baits.  If you are not going to throw any over 1/2 oz, you might want to consider 703/702 unless you fish heavy cover or rip lipless crankbaits through grass.

If you don't get a lot of responses here, give Powell a call.  They are great in answering product questions.  When I considered a Powell Max last year, they convinced me that a 3 power was more suitable for my needs than a 4 power.  (I was considering the discontinued 6'0 model, but by the time I had the funds, I could not find it :)  )
