Compre Crank Rod

Recommended Posts

ive been using my medium fast and a medium heavy fast pflueger president casting rods for my cranks, definitely not the ideal set up as those were my first rods i bought while getting into the sport again, ive ventured away and own some dobyns savvy now which are night and day, now too bad for me they dont offer a crank line in the savvy, i cant afford the champions and champion extremes so thats a no go, i got some bass pro gift cards, i got 150 bucks and would like to pick up a couple jerk/rip baits while im at it so i dont have a balance left, i dont want to pay much more then 110 to 120 bucks for one. 2 rods stuck out to me, wright and mcgill rick clunn 7' medium heavy which ive been eye balling since the release, and the shimano compre 7' medium heavy mod fast, i dont care about color, i just want a nice rod thats strong and sensitive enough, its basically down to those 2 and would like to hear feedback on them, but im always open to other options, but has to be available through bass pro thanks guys hoping you guys can help

i like shimano, had an old convergence crank rod used it til the reel fell off...literally, d**n reel seat broke off before the blank broke, glued it and kept going. there are many great rods out there and i cant really go and hold them so im flying blind on selection.

I love Shimano's cranking rods...I have four now, three Crucials and one Compre. The Compre is a 6'6" M/MF in the old brown blank model (two styles ago) that I found on clearance a couple years ago for $30. I mounted a Caenan on it and use it for topwater--primarily spooks--at which it excels. I had a previous model Compre in a 7' MH/MF that I used for medium to deep and lipless crankbaits. I really liked its sensitivity and feel, and recently upgraded to the same model in the new split-grip EVA Crucial. I like it even more. Top notch crankbait rods IMO.
