crankbait rod?

Recommended Posts

going to be getting a new crankbait rod and was looking at these 2 models: powell 703 glass, or dobyns 705 glass. both rods would throw medium cranks (some large), jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, and topwater. so if anyone has any info on either rod please reply!

and what reel would you reconmend to balance them out?

I use a Dobyns 705 Glass Rod, it's awesome. The thing is light as all hell, which most glass rods are not. Well worth the money. I use it for cranking, rip biats and top water baits. I have a Revo STX on mine and it balances perfectly. It was the only rod I used all throughout winter, never got tired. Awesome rod.

I love my Fenwick HMG for crainkbaits, but I have used other Powell rods and LOVE them so I would go with the Powell
