How many different crankbait rods do you usually keep tied up this time of year?

I usually keep 4-5: squarebill, medium diver, two deeps cranks, and sometimes a lipless crank

If I'm gonna be offshore all day usually have 5 rods rigged with 6xd/8xd/10xd. If I'm also fishing shallower water Ill have 2 square bill rods and maybe a 5xd rod

Y'all are either rich or must win a lot of money in tournaments to dedicate that much money in rigs for cranking any time of the year! Overkill in my opinion and proves advertising pays. I seem to get along just fine with two.

3-5 is pretty common and not overkill. If you are fishing ledges 2 won't get it done unless you are on one particular depth all day.

Do you notice much of a difference between the 8xd & 10xd?

8xd is more of a 6xd than a 10xd it pulls the same as a 6xd and dives deeper has larger profile. If you are targeting the 20ft range and trying to dig bottom as long as possible this is your bait. a 6xd will hit 20ft but you need a long cast and 10/12lb line. This 8xd seems to get down to that depth most of the time with 12-15lb line.

Can't tell if you're trolling or just an ignorant comment? I use four now and looking to add a couple more. I can't say I'm very rich or win a lot of money in tournaments. I have a job, does that count? If you think that is overkill then your opinion is in the minority. Also that doesn't prove anything about advertising (that's foolish) if a fisherman who knows how to fish a certain technique, and uses the proper equipment, only trial and error, and time on the water, are the factors that dictate rod count(again not advertising). If you get along fine with two, more power to ya, but you sure won't be catching more than the guys that have four or five. Thanks for playin' popcorn
