Depends on you really, but I like a 6'8 I have a 7' to but I like the shorter rod most of the time it's the only rod I use less than 7'. Medium fast is the way to go imo.

Six and a half, medium fast.
Light line.

If you go too long it's harder to impart the correct action because you fish them rod tip down.

I prefer the longer 7' rod, too. I use the MH, moderate fast tip for my jerkbaits, good shallow and medium diving CB rod, too. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Either a 6'8" or 7' medium action, fast tip, typically a 3 power. I would not though that I wouldn't necessarily recommend a crankbait rod as most, I say most, have less backbone mid-blank and some are even parobalic action, which won't give you the backbone you need mid-blank to give the jerkbait the right action. I typically use my rods for dual purpose and the same rods I use for jerkbaits also serve as a rod for small swimbaits, flukes, and topwaters. I've had pretty good success with the St. Croix Avid and the very affordable Powell Inferno rods. I can give you the exact models if you want, just don't have them handy at the moment. Good luck.
