I'm looking for a good cranking rodnto throw some bigger baits. Is glass the way to go? Trying to keep it under $100.

Might ask in the bass fishing forum.
California. Well it's like breakfast cereal. You get rid of the fruits and nuts and all that's left are the flakes. Thank goodness there's a place called Texas.

If you live in Central Texas the Cabelas in Buda has a bargain cave. I picked up a discontinued Cabelas XML 7' heavy normally $149 for $59 with another 15% off making it $50 last weekend. The bargain cave often has good buys on discontinued rods. I also recently picked up an H2O 7'10" Ethos Magnum $79 at Academy that I use for deep diving crankbaits.
I'd rather be fishing...

Diesel Glass crankbait rod. I got mine for 80 on TW. Paired it with a Lew's LFS I picked up off ebay for 79. The combo is surprisingly light. The fish ranger has them for 50, but I don't know if that site is legit or not. Their security token had expired when I was last on there.

Depends on size crankbaits you to want to toss.

Powell Diesel 7 ft Med-Hvy Glass 705CB rated for cranks up to 1/2 oz $80 Tacklewarehouse

Probably need stouter rod for DD22's, 8-10XD's, etc.
