I desperately need a cranking rod. Stopped all bass fishing for almost 10 years ago. love crank baits and it's time to bounce some off of some cover. I use deep, led and shallow ones. With that said...

What would crank specialists recommend at Academy for under $100 for all around cranking. Putting an IR120C on it (round reel). I'm old school.

Btw coming to Fork soon so it has to hold up to those monsters.

I really like the Academy brand H20 7'10" magnum cranker. I've had it for over a year and have nothing bad to say about it.

I would say the Duckett cranking rod.
I put a Lews BB1 on mine, wow, casts like a dream.
Very sensitive, and light weight.

I like the H20 Ethos rods for cranking from Academy. I use the 7'6" XH rod for medium and deep csranks, does well with the lipless baits as well. I have the 7' MH Ethos for the shallow stuff, on sale for around $100 combined. If not, maybe $120 for both of them, if you can find them. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck. OH, if you are using straight graphite rods (those 2 are), back your drag off to about 3 lbs so a 3 lb bass can pull a little drag. That way you won't rip the hooks out of the mouth of the fish.

The magnum cranker iis a good rod for a composite rod, but so was teh BPS rod, too.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

This may make folks laugh but at $24.99 its a good rod for crankbaits and its a graphite/fiberglass hybrid. Med-Heavy 7 ft. Berkley Cherrywood

Lol, yep, I have 4 of them and 3 of them have crankbaits on them. It brought in close to a dozen on the squarebill on the rip rap this morning.

If you find another, buy it. It appears they do not make them anymore.

Give the new Buccoo SR a try.
It's great for launching big crankbaits and has pretty good sensitivity.
