  • 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 98 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent rod This is the best rod for cranking I have ever fished with. It casts big and small cranks with ease and translates the feeling of even the slightest bite to your hands. I have the 7'6" medium action and it slings the bait way out there. The x-fast action is great for throwing the baits and for controlling the fish, it is very easy to keep them from running under the boat. This is my favorite rod and I highly recommend to anyone who fishes cranks. April 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod!! Very happy with this rod. The power hump grip is very comfortable. The blank is exposed at the rod seat and in front of the trigger which really translates the slightest bumps or bites to the angler. It's a very light rod with plenty of back bone. My 7' mh is paired with the BPS nitro z low profile reel and I couldn't be happier. Will be buying more!! April 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rod-Great Price!! This rod is perfect in every way for crank bait fishing. Great backbone for awesome hook sets. Strong enough to pull in a 8 pounder as you see in photo. This photo proves the great workmanship of this masterpiece rod. I highly recommend to any bass fisherman. April 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great crank bait rod This is my fourth Crankin' Stik that I have in my rod locker. I have a couple of 6'6", one 7'.0" and now a 7'10". I am using the 7'10" with Strike King 10XD lures as well as umbrella rigs. I have used rods that are over $ 200 that are not as good as the Crankin' Stick. Excellent purchase. April 5, 2013

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.

A: 
Yes. I throw a lot of square bills. I have about 8 or more of these rods and there is either a jerk bait or a 1.5 square bill to a 10 XD tied on. I Think tip would be to soft for spinnerbait , unless it's a fast action

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.

I'm deciding between this rod 7'6"mh, the garry loomis signature freshwater rod 7'6"h, or daiwa T trigger rod 7'6"h for frog fishing over heavy cover. Which one is the best obtion? Thanks

Frog fishing in the slop....I'm using a heavy action rod with lots of backbone. I don't think a cranking rod will get it done but I guess it depends on how heavy the cover is.

A: 
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.

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.
