I broke my crankbait rod yesterday. It was a Duckett Laser Lure DFLL70CC 7’ Crankin model. I only used it for squarebills. I’m looking at the Quantum TKVD746MB, 7’ 4” MH to replace it for fishing 1.5 & 2.5 squarebills. What does the TFF say?

How did you break the rod? I have quite a few Ducketts and so far I've never had an issue.

Totally my fault. Rod was laying over the gunnel and I layed over it trying to get a fish that was tangled around a stump. It broke. Made me sick.

I think I've thrown more square bills in the last two yrs
than I have my whole life. 13s omen 7ft moderate cranking rod
is an awesome sb and shallow crankin rod.

The KVD rod is a composite rod, so I do not know if that is what you are looking for or not. I throw mine on a Dobyns 764 CB RM, but they DO have a Fury 705 CB rod that would work well, too. It is priced around $110, I think. Here is a link to it:

http://dobynsrods.com/rod/fr-705cb/

Good rod for what you are looking for. NOTHING wrong with the KVD rod, I just do not like composite rods for the most part. His is a step better than the similar BPS Crankin' Stick, however. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Sorry to hear about your broken rod.

Not trying to be a smarta77 or anything. Honestly would like to know why a separate rod is required for a square bill as opposed to a regular crankbait.

That's kind of my thought too.

I like a 7'9" for deep diving cb, you can just cast farther
and hold that rod down and get that extra ft on diving depth.
A 7 ft rod for sb makes it easier for accurate casting at certain targets
for me anyway.

I want a separate rod because a squarebill is a lot different than say a 6XD.

I’d reccommend a Dobyns 705 CB (either glass or graphite depending on what you prefer and fury or champion series depending on your price range). 2.5s are really its sweet spot, but I throw a lot of 1.5s on it as well.

It's hard to beat the 7" loomis crankbait rod for a squarebill

7' medium trinity series leviathan is by far the best squarebill rod I have used. I sold my loomis cranking rods to buy 2 more after I got the first one. It's a really good rod for throwing medium diving cranks too 1.5 size.

That's kind of my thought too.



"Required" is too strong of a word. The reasons I have a dedicated SB rod are:

1. I like always having one tied on and don't want to take off deep diving crankbait to switch to a SB
2. For deep divers a long cast is key. For SB's an accurate cast is more important. Long casts use long rods, accurate casts short(er) rods.
3. I use 12 lb fluoro for deep cranking, or smaller. I use 17lb abrazx for SB's.


You can do both on the same rod but you can do it better on a dedicated setup.
