What's the best one on the market?

There is no best, it's all opining in the big scheme.

I like the H20 Ethos at Sports Academy, offered at "working man" prices.

Good luck...many more opinions coming I'm sure.

Depends on budget. The new St Croix Legend Glass won rod of the year at a couple expos already. I want one badly but my cheap Powell Diesel glass rod wont give me a reason to get rid of it

Depends, looking for a deep diver setup or something else? An ALLAROUND ROD for ALL CB's? I think the BEST out there is the Dobyns 764 CB RM for shallow and medium diver baits and the 805 CB RM for deep divers, but if you are going for the 10XD range, the 806 is better, because it is rated for it. All are Champion XPs and run for $260 or so, but THEY are the best I have found, with LOTS of CB experience. MOF, I have 6 published CB articles. But, what do I KNOW????? As mentioned above, it is ALL about preference. I PREFER to go with full graphite rods, because of the sensitivity of the rod. I have fished glass and composite rods, but still prefer the graphite. If you go with a graphite rod, back up on your drag so a 3# fish can pull a little drag and you won't rip the hooks out of their lips. Just a tidbit of knowledge that has come for mutltiple hours or decades of fishing CBs. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I picked up the Abu Garcia Ike delay series crank rod in a 7' 3" Medium. Well balanced composite blank. Launches you're typical 2.5 squares and 300 jerks out there and has great sensitivity as well as backbone to keep the fish pinned. Well spent $120 in my opinion.

e6x are great rods. I got the cranking rod and didn't like the length of the handle seemed short. bought a Dobyns fury and a St croix LTB both great rods just depends on your budget

One of my favorites and probably the best deal going. I have $500 rods and still throw deep diving crankbaits and chatter baits on a BPS Crankin Stick. I don't think you need a $200 rod to throw crankbaits. The idea isn't to use the most sensitive rod for those kind of baits.
