  • Powerwall™ IM6 graphite blank
  • Reinforced with fiberglass and basalt fibers
  • Powerful, versatile, and flexible
  • Fiberglass-feeling tip
  • PowerHump® cork handle
  • XPS® Grip-Tite® graphite seat
  • Pac Bay Hialoy guides
  • Pro-Guard™ epoxy finish
We've taken a raw Powerwall IM6 graphite blank and juiced it up with brawny fiberglass, then infused the blank with stabilizing basalt mineral fibers. The result? A fusion of agility, power, and flexibility that is unmatched anywhere else in the fishing industry. Ideal for a variety of uses—from crankbaits to spinnerbaits and everything in between—the fiberglass-feeling tip allows the lure to move naturally; but you can still feel the hit. Spun basalt fibers enhance the structure of the blank, allowing us to build it with a thinner, lighter wall that's still strong and flexible. Features a PowerHump cork handle, XPS Grip-Tite graphite seat, Pac Bay Hialoy guides, and Pro-Guard™ epoxy finish.


Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 104 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Choice for Pike Been using Crankin' Sticks for years on Northern Pike in Manitoba; both the 6'6" and the 7' MH models. The reinforced IM-6 blank holds up well in landing these 40"+ marauders without undue struggle. Haven't had a broken Crankin' Stick, yet. Crankin' Sticks make casting 1 oz. lures easy on the fisherman. The price is right and paying extra for a "more sensitive" rod for freight-train pike strikes is laughable. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crankin Stick Med/Light One of the best rods I have ever used for my spinnerbait fishing on australian bass. With good sensitivity in the tip so i can see that my blades are working correctly to plenty of back bone for those scorching runs that our bass do running for timber...This rod i can cast all day with nice and light no more sore shoulder like i used to get from other rods that i used....Every year when i come to Oklahoma I go over into Kansas to Springfield to the bass pro store and buy another couple to take back to australia with me....I have over 20 crankin sticks now all my other rods have been retired.... July 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by So Soory i did this I have a lot of rods , this is the only junk one I have. Thought it may be the reel ,so put a pro qualifier on it , still junk . I can not get any range out of it . All my other rod cast 20 yards more same reel same bait . June 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome rods!!! This is the forth Crankin Stick I have bought, they are a great rod at a great price. Only one complaint they really need to make a Crankin Stick in a Spinning Model. June 9, 2014

A: 
One of the most important things that affects casting distance is your fishing line. Choosing the right fishing line will greatly increase the range of your casts. Fishing line that is both limp (low-memory) and thin (small diameter) is ideal because it allows your line to “fly” off the reel and through the guides with little friction or resistance – resulting in a further cast. High-memory line, on the other hand, comes off your spool in coils and creates a high amount of friction as it goes through the guides. The friction slows down your line, resulting in lost casting distance. The diameter of the fishing line also plays a role when it comes to casting distance. The thinner your line is, the further it will cast.

Trilene XL (extra-limp) is probably one of the most popular lines for casting distance. Yes, you might try the Fluorocarbon line or try the SpiderWire UltraCast, which is a braided line made especially for smooth, long distance casting. It’s super though and has a thin diameter. It also has no-stretch but yet is very limp. Also, FireLine Fused Original is a “superline” that is made by fusing multiple strands into one line by the use of heat. It’s super-strong, super-thin, and super limp. Hence the name “superline”.

Thanks!

A: 
Generally one doesn't need additional sensitivity when a bass or a pike come flying out of the water after a topwater lure. Both rods will suffice. For this reason the less expensive Crankin' Stick will do as well as the Extreme for surface lures. I use MH rods almost exclusively as they seem to help in NOT tiring out the fish for catch and release.

A: 
Hi, thank you for your inquiry. For Crankbaits lures, you will want to look for a soft flexible tip and good backbone rod. Length should be 7’ to 7-12’. The long length helps greatly in making long cast.
For Topwater lures a 6’ rod works great for walking baits and spitting poppers. A 6’6” for long twitching and a 7’6 for frogs and rat lures.

Staff Answer
A: 
Action describes the speed with which the rod returns to its neutral position. Rods with a fast action combined with a full progressive bending curve allows the fisherman to make longer casts, given that the casted weight and line diameter is correct. When a casted weight exceeds the specifications lightly, a rod becomes slower, slightly reducing the distance. When a casted weight is slightly less than the specified casting weight the distance is slightly reduced as well, as the rod action is only used partially. The action is not the power of the rod.

I throw 3/8 and 1/2 ounce spinners with this rod. Its got lots of feel and is easy to control using both overhead and underhand casts. Keep your spinner hooks sharp and use a big sweeping hookset. I've had some good fish pull loose....not sure if its me or the rod.

The Crankin Stick is not designed really for flippin & pitchin or froggin. I wouldn't recommend doing much with it outside of crankbait and spinnerbait fishing. I use a BPS Tourney Special, 7'6"H for my froggin and absolutely love it. Maybe give that one a shot!

the garry loomis is a good rod, but for heavy cover you might need a little more back bone and the cranken stick has that.

In my experience, any of them should do very nicely. It just depends on which one you WANT, really. With the BP rod costing less, that's the one I'd choose, but I come from a long line of old Scots that'd send a haint to haunt me if I spent any $$$ I didn't really need to. Any of them will do fine, but the BP will save you money.

Your question is one I've been thinking of lately myself. I usually use a BP Ext 7'H action rod for Carolina rigging, but there have been many times when I wished the tip action on it were softer .... soooooo ..... I think I'm going to get one for Carolona Rigging myself. The MH actions in 7 or 7 1/2 ft should work very nicely, especially with 1/2 oz. and less sinker sizes, which I use frequently. It'll serve double duty as a cranker. Pretty neat combo for much of the fishing year, eh?

A: 
Depending on the weight of your cranks and the reel + line you have it paired up with i think it would be an awesome combo i throw small light senkos with a pro qualifier and power pro 30lbs braided line and they cast just fine on my cranking stick which i believe is a 7' medium as well i also throw other smaller baits on this set up just fine. If you are worried the rod has no backbone i can back up that it does awesome soft tip for throwing light baits but when it comes down to hauling fish up this rod really knows how to bring the pressure to the fish. Hope some of this helps I love my cranking stick im sure you would too.

Personally, I would use nothing less than a 7' med-heavy or even heavy with a flexible tip for deep diving crankbaits.You need a rod with backbone for deep cranks.

Medium is more suited for depths of 5 ft. or less.
