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 5 out of 5 by Fisherman82 Great value rod
I would highly recommend this rod to anyone looking for a great crankbait stick. I purchased the 6'6 medium action rod and love it. The only downfall I found is that trying to set a hook on fish after u have thrown it out at a full cast it's lacking the stiffness there. Anywhere closer its awesome. I plan on getting another. Good luck to everyone on catching the big one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by wlfpkguy Good rod for fishermen on budget.....
I have one of the older Crankin Sticks in 7' M action and it performed well before I bought two of the newer model Crankin Sticks (7'ML & 7'MH). These crankbait rods are great for the fishermen on a budget and doesn't want to spend too much money for a KVD Tour Special or GLoomis rod. They usually are on sale at least twice per year as well.
The M & ML rods can handle jerkbaits and small CB's (SK Series 3's and Bandit 300's) with ease. I even use the Medium action rod for CB's up to a Strike King Series 5. The 7' MH can handle the big deep diving CB's during the summer months and when paired with the right reel it won't even wear you out after a full day's fishing. I would think about upgrading to a 7'6"MH rod for deep diver's, but right now I'm satisfied with the 7' rods.
I've got all three rods matched up to Pro Qualifier reels (5.4:1) and the pair seems to work just fine for me. The rods have plenty of sensitivity in the tip and enough backbone to horse in fish. I saw some earlier postings stating that these rods will break when big fish are on the line. The biggest LM I've caught on these rods is a 4lber, so I can't really speak to the really big ones giving the rod trouble.
The biggest advantage to these rods is the weight of the rod. These rods feel twice as light as the KVD Tour rods! For the weekend fisherman, these rods should meet and exceed your expectations. If you're a tournament fisherman, then maybe invest some more money and buy the pricier rods. Last year during the Bassmaster Postseason, Edwin Evers used these rods when big money was on the line! So if its good enough for a pro fishing for $100,000 +, then its good enough for me.
