With the Bass Pro Shops® Crankin' Stick™ Trigger Rod, 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.

Cranking Rod Rod worked out well as I knew it would since my Uncle has one already. Nice product at a decent price. Just wish it had come in a combo set-up. September 26, 2012
Great Rod for the Price! I think this is the best Crankin Rod you can get for the price. It also doubles as a great spooning (jigging) rod for Bass, Trout, Striper, and Salmon (as I catch all 4 species spooning with this rod). I use the medium weight for bass & trout and medium heavy for stripers and Salmon. I have 5 of these rods. 4 rods are 7 years old and still going strong! So I just bought another one for guests I bring fishing. I just had my friend buy one too. September 26, 2012
EXCELLENT ROD GREAT VALUE FOR THE BUCK ENDED UP BUYING AN ADDITIONAL ROD July 12, 2012
Nice Best crank bait rod for the money on the market! Works great for top water walking baits too. Very light, sensitive, and has that "slow" crank bait rod feel...just ordered 2 more! July 3, 2012

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.

Details: 
Plan on spooling with 30-40# braid w/ leader of course and 3/4-1.75oz baits. Looking at the 7'6 MH F (or possibly XF if going with cranking stick) the ratings are about the same for the carbonlite and crankin stick. I'm worried the carbonlite might be too stiff with those treble hooks and my braid. With the cranking stick I'm worried I might not have enough hooksetting power to drive in the treble and push the bait up the line. I'm kind of leaning towards the crankin stick b/c I could use it for deep cranks too...and the price.

A: 
For crankbaits 1/2 oz and larger go with the 7'6" MH Crankin' Stick. Plenty of backbone. Don't know why you would want to use braid for any crankbait other than a rattle trap to rip out of grass. Get it now - it's $25.00 off.

I know this rod is a great crankbait bait rod , but would you choose this rod or the duckett crankbait rod. I'm looking for only one crank bait rod to throw RC1.5 as well as dd22, so which would you choose? I only want to buy one so would you choose M or MH and moderate or fast tip? Thanks

A: 
My personal preference is a more sensitive, forgiving rod for my crankbaits, therefore I'd go with the M, however to get optimal depth with the DD, the MH would work better. It's tough to find a rod to cover such a large spectrum of lures.

Is it good for jerk too?

Details: 
I'd like to know if the 6'6"-medium could be a good choice for fishing also with bass-jerk (Rapala Husky Jerk, Bomber Long A, ...), that need a lot of tip work.

I used the 6'6" ml with Rapala X-Rap's and Smithwick Rogues with LOTS of success. So the ML I'd say does, and would imagine the Med would do too.

A: 
If you're around heavy cover I'd recommend a 7'6" MH and fill your reel with braid, 50-65 should do, 80 if you're around really nasty stuff.

A: 
I wouldn't use these rods for frogs at all. If you are fishing around cover where a frog excels, go to at least a medium heavy 7' rod with a good back bone. Most use a 7 to 7.5' heavy rod or flipping stick with braid for frogs. Look at Veritas rods or in BPS brands, pro qualifer, extreme or bionic blade without breaking the bank.

topwater?

Details: 
Looking for a rod primarily for topwater fishing (walking a spook 90% of the time) but also want it to double as my crankbait rod. Everything looks great except the fast tip, I'm worried it'll be too flimsy when I'm snapping the spook back and forth. Anyone have any experience with this? Or have any other suggestions? Preferably a light weight fiberglass composite, medium w/ moderate tip. Thanks.

A: 
I used a 7 ft medium-light Crankin' Stick for a topwater and crankbait rod and absolutely loved it. It had no problems handling a 3/4 oz spook or deep diving crankbait. The fast tip means it bends quickly, but that doesn't mean flimsy. There are a lot of heavy action rods with fast or extra fast tips. I also really like my 7 ft 10 inch Crankin' Stick which is a medium-heavy. It's great for deep cranks and awesome for spinnerbaits, plus it's a good buzzbait & heavy topwater rod.

A: 
I have bought three of these rods . Two in 7' md/light with fast tip that I use for small (1/2 oz. and lighter ) cranks and one 7'10" med/hvy with a extrafast tip for lippless rattletraps in and around grass . All of them have proven very durable and excellant in sensitivity for the price point . These rods most of which are listed as fast in my opion are really somewhere in between fast and moderate in action . Having said that I would recommend that you consider a 6'6" -7' maybe even up to 7'6" med or med/hvy with fast to extrafast tip . The med power is going to better suited to smaller spooks and smaller spinnerbaits and the md/hvy will be better for most spinners 1/2oz and up . Spooks are in different sizes too and for the largest models the med/hvy will often be a better choice . Now to my reason for looking for a fast to extrafast action is that a fast with a slight leaning towards extrafast is best for spooks in that the stiffer tip helps to achieve that walk the dog action with little effort from your input . You also will like the extrafast more so with the larger spooks so as to be able to drive the hooks home (hooks that come on the spooks are rather large). I personally change my hooks on my larger spooks to same size but a slightlly lighter guage . I then opt for my 7' med/hvy fast tip extreme rod which in my opion is a beefy fast tip ( close to a extrafast tip ) . Using these heavy type rods and actions do of course take alot of finese from you around the boat . I like to turn my drag down before the fish gets close to the boat and be ready to hand feed it line when needed and increase tension with my thumb as needed .Most important thing with what ever rod choice make sure to let the fish have some time to get a hold of the spooks . I always give about a second and half no matter whether I feel the fish or not . Although I will add I do tend to get better at this as the day goes on . With spinner baits under 1/2 oz med power is fine depending on the hooks guage (thickness) . Thick hooks you will be sorry unless you go md/hvy . On to the action I like extrafast on all spinnerbaits . The action will be appropreate to the power used to drive the hooks home . Also the extrafast tip is very sensitive giving you the quickest hookset and feeling needed to hookup consistantly . If I was planning on using one rod for both and looking for a decent price I would look into the Extreme in a 6'6" med/hvy extrafast . You will have more accuracy with a 6'6" than with a longer rod . I will admit that I personally use a 7'6" md/hvy xtr/fast for spinners and a 7' med fast/extrafast for the spooks but I have about 20 nice bass baitcasting rods to choose from right now . So of course I will fine toon to the specific technique and lure size and line weight and wind and adjust for my size . Being that I'm 6'2" tall I can cast a longer pole with more accuracy than someone who is shorter . I actually never use a rod under 7' long anymore unless fishing for other species . Good luck and dont forget to use mono fishing line ( I use 14lb most of the time but will use as low as 8lb on very clear waters ) on those spooks because it floats and will add in the walk the dog technique . Also use a loop knot on the spooks too . I use a triple surgens knot . Easy to tie with my huge hands but you will need to retie after each catch . I know I got very windy here in answering your ? but I really felt like you were heading the wrong direction which I did many times over and felt like I could help curve the learning experience in this situation. Anyway hope that helps you out in some way . Tight lines and happy dreams . I'm so sorry . I just reread this to edit it and after rereading your ? I see that you were wanting a combo crank bait and spook rod not a spook/spinnerbait rod . After considering rewritting it decided to leave the above because of its relevance . You can see where because of what I wrote above I would not recommend a combo crankbait rod and spookrod at all . A good crankbait rod is not stiff enough to achieve the walk the dog action without some serious work from your input and they are also not really right to achive good hooksets with the spooks hooks . The spooks come with heavy guage hooks for a reason and that is because they know you will want a fast to xtrfast tip to work the bait correctly . With a stiff tip like that you will pull out normal size trebles thus the heavier hooks right out of the package . Again I'm sorry for the mistake at first . These are excellant crankbait rods for the price . My advice is that you always use rod socks on your crankbaits rods because good crankbaits rods will break if you get knicks or scratches in them . Again good luck and enjoy whatever rod you decide to choose.
