crankbait rod question

Recommended Posts

Bought my first crankbaits yesterday as Gander has Rapala DTs on sale for $5 each. I picked up about a half dozen. Also picked up some Storm crankbaits for $3 each from the clearance table.

So now for the dumb question. Can someone tell me why crankbait rods are so flexible? They are like noodles compared to normal rods. I only have a few guesses as to why, one being feel, one being casting, and the last having something to do with the smaller hooks used on crankbaits vss your standard plastic worm hook. (the rod sets the hooks better?)

Anyway, if someone can explain quickly about the flexibility I would appreciate it.

Also, if anyone has checked out the Skeet Reese yellow crankbait rods and has any input I would appreciate it.

Helps to stop ripping the hooks out of the fishes mouth.
