What rod do you like best for throwing square bill crank baits?

I use an older model Shimano TC-4, 7ft in length. I was just wondering what everyone else likes best.

Falcon original series medium-heavy. It's heavy enough to feel the hard knocks of hitting brush and pull it free. And soft enough to tell the difference from hitting brush and having a fish on. Its just a different feel which over time I have learned much in the same way I get a certain vibration from a Carolina Rig as opposed to the feel of a T-Rig bait. IMO the key to it is consistency and like time on water with the rig...

I use a 6'10" Powell Inferno Composite. Like the shorter rods for accuracy.

For all my small and medium diving CBs, I use the Dobyn's Champion 764 CB RM. It handles all those CBs really well. Graphite, but with a good limber tip and enough backbone to get the job done on big fish. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
