Rated 5 out of 5 by Jbush Great rod!
Bought the 6 10 crankster and loved it! It's lightweight and can throw the light crankbaits with ease. A must have rod for anyone looking to throw squarebill or shallow crankbaits.

If you are looking for a great crank baiting rod for bass fishing and dont wanna spend a ton of money, I highly recommend this rod. It had a great feel and its a st.croix you can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Destroyer340 Best rods ever!
As with all St.Croix rods this rod does not fail to live up to their reputation. Great craftsmanship, good looks, well balanced, great action. It casts big crankbaits like a rocket, its super sensitive and feels great in the hand. The only draw back is that its not a good rod for fishing heavy cover. That's mostly because of its length, it is 7'10”, so its not as maneuverable as a shorter rod. But that's why I have shorter StCroix rods for that. Its well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone.

Is this rod graphite or glass . the rods title line says its glass but the description of the rod says its graphite and doesn't mention glass at all . Come on St. Croix you can give BassPro a better description than that . Someones help here who owns one would be greatly appreciated . Thank You !!
These rods are both glass and graphite. Its an inner layer of graphite wrapped with glass. And the tip section is all glass so that its softer and more flexible so you can cast it better and so it won't rip the hooks out of a surging fish. The inner layer of graphite is to give the rod backbone and to make it lighter because glass can be heavy in a rod this size.
I don't see why not. I have the Medium/Fast Action rod and I have put on a shallow crankbait before. Didn't catch one but the action felt nice. I primarily use mine for plastics but like I said above, I have used it as a crankbait rod in a pinch.
