  • 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 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by very nice feeling rod `ask the clerk for the rod he would recommend, told him exactaly what i wanted and showed me the cranking stick.

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.

A: 
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.

I find the medium action a bit light in the first third of the rod and would be roughly equivalent to a medium light or even light action in other rods...a deep cranking plug would, IMO, put quite a bend in the rod, by itself. I would go medium heavy.

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.

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.
