A Good Crankbait Rod is often overlooked.
If your going to buy one crankbait rod, get a 7-foot medium or medium-heavy.

Now if you want two rods get another 7 foot rod use one for deep-running baits
and another rod with a softer tip for lighter, shallower-running baits.
softer tip model allows you to “load” the rod better and make longer casts with
lighter lures. When you throw heavier crankbaits on a soft tip rod, the tip
absorbs all of the energy and you get less casting distance.
For more diversify, get some
shorter rods for tight spaces and some longer light tip action for throwing smaller baits
in open water In general lengths of 6-6 and 7-2.
Rods constructed with a
combination of E-glass and composite materials delivers both
the sensitivity of graphite and the limberness of glass. When you're
throwing a lipless crankbait in grass you can feel when you have a
little piece of grass on your bait or you can feel that crankbait when you're
hitting a mud bottom.
Then you also have the slower action of glass for when
you are cranking into stumps and ledges and you want your rod to unload, and you
have the softer action for fighting and playing fish with treble hooks when they
are close to the boat.
Fishing Rod Terms .
- This describes how much of the rod bends when you put
pressure on the tip. A fast action rod will bend in only the top third
or less of the blank, a medium or moderate action will bend in the top
half or so and a slow action will bend starting in the lower third of
- When you hear "this rod has a lot of backbone" they
mean it has a lot of power. Power ratings are describes as heavy, medium
heavy, medium, etc. Power is related to the line strength; heavier power
rods will handle heavy line weights and lighter powers will be good for
light lines. It is fairly important to keep your line test within the
limits printed on the rod since a heavy power rod will snap light lines
too easily and heavy lines can snap a light rod.
- Responsiveness reflects the ability of the entire rod
to flex under load and release the stored energy in the cast. A finished
rod may be the result of different layers of different material, all of
which contributes to the responsiveness of the rod. The lighter the rod,
especially the tip, the more responsive it will be. As Gary Loomis put
it, weight is the deterrent to performance. Overall, the higher the
modulus the more efficiently it will store and release energy, which
gives you the ability to flick an accurate cast on a lower trajectory.
