Cranks and cranks and cranks I had that rod when it first came out u would be screwed if u tried to toss a swim jit on it or chatter bait not enough backbone to drive home a heavy wire 4/0-5/0 hook

"Cranking Rod". Hence the word Crankbait...

It works good for me with a finesse 5/16 swim jig, but to each his own.

I prefer a moderate tip for crankbaits. A fast tip would be good for rattletraps and jerk baits. I would go MH for spinnerbaits, swim jigs, and chatter baits. Just my 2 cents.

Yes I thought the same. I threw a spinnerbait on it and it felt to heavy... Maybe a 1/4 or 3/8 would work.

I had that rod and its action is like a wet noodle. I would only throw bats the have a treble hook.
