I use Duckett Ghost in a Medium Heavy 7'6" cranking rod to throw smaller cranks. For extra deep diverks I use the Duckett White Ice 7'11" cranking. II like pairing these with a 7:1 reel or higher in a 200 series allowing for longer casts from. The higher speed reel also let's you keep up with the fish easier.

All great suggestions. But for a budget CB rod, my fav is the Berkley Lightning Rod Shock. It's designed for braid so it has an excellent parabolic action for cranks. I use the 7'MH for squarebills & other shallow baits & the 7'6" MH for the deep divers. You can get both for your budget.
Take a kid fishing.

If you can find some Academy Ethos rods, they are GREAT for those applications. I use a 7' MH rod for those on 17 to 20# McCoys Mean Green. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

There is a GREAT Dobyns FURY rod for $110, a little bit out of your budget, but it is DESIGNED for CBs. The 705 CB rod works wonders for that application. They have a new series of rods called COLT rods that they have a 705 CB rod for $80, might try it, I haven't yet, but could be a good buy. Hope this helps.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
