Crankers: Stacy King wants you to LIGHTEN UP! Ain't broke--don't fix it. For some, that's good enough, but not for Stacey King and our product team. At Stacey's urging, they took one of the world's great specialty rods, applied some beyond-the-cutting-edge technology, and created the crankbaiter's dream rod! The Crankin' Stick's blank composition is a unique blend of IM6 graphite, fiberglass, and basalt fibers--yes, volcanic rock in its purest form, because of its ultra-high strength-to-weight ratio and incredible vibration resistance (you feel the bait working, not the rod). Result: the blank is now 20% lighter (it's ridiculous how good this rod still feels after casting deep divers or double-blades all day), strong as heck, and incredibly sensitive due to the rock-solid stability of the basalt fibers. The reel seat is a more-compact version of our original XPS® Soft Touch graphite seat, which makes the rod even lighter and easier to handle. Meanwhile, we use unidirectional, thin-wall construction to maximize feel, and of course our famous ''Fiberglass Feeling'' tip provides the distance and flexibility you count on. Other features include contoured PowerHump® premium cork handle, hard aluminum oxide guides, and Pro-Guard™ epoxy finish.

These rods are awesome for cranks and spinnerbaits. Have caught more fish on the 7' M than any other rod I own. I cast these things like I'm swinging a baseball bat, and they hold up year after year. No need to blow extra money on a "fancier" crank rod. However, not the rod for plastic worms or bass jigs, because the actions are too slow, and the sensitivity is not there. The "extreme" series in MH or H makes a great worm or jig rod. Love the "humpgrip" handle!

I have 3 of these that I've used for the last 2-3 years, and they're about as good as you'd want a crankin' rod to be. I'm in GA, and where I usually fish, the distance requirements aren't great, so I have two 6/6" MH, and one 6'6' ML. The newer rods with the Basalt in them are even better feeling in the store and I plan to get a 6'M for small to med. topwaters, and a 7;6" MH for salt water use, and cranking on the big lakes. Can't wait to get them!

Got myself a cranking stick used but I love it! Paired it with a bass pro, Pro qualifier reel and couldn't ask for anything better. I throw soft plastics and cranks right up into cover and this rod even with the soft tip has enough backbone to horse the fish out of rocks logs weed and dock with ease. Rod holds up great no complaints going to buy another one when I can get it on sale. Awesome rod, great price, one of bass pros better products for sure.

Great rod, with a good strong backbone. Probably the best crankbait rod you can get for the money.
