I lie the Dobyns rod mentioned above. Best all around rod, except for throwing 10 XDs I have found. It handldes most of the baits with charm and is a breeze to throw. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I throw 10XD's most of the summer, haven't used the above mentioned but bought a Cashion Rod built for 10XDs, and really like it. But can't give a comparison since I haven't used the others.

MajorCraft Nanoace 7.5MH cranking 119.99 or wait for the MS-1 7.5H cranking Stick. Both rods are great for cranking mid to deep divers.

For 6XDs and 8XDs, the Falcon XD cranker--at your price point

The 10XD is a different animal than the 6XD and even the 8XD. I think of the 10XD as a deep diving hard swimbait with bottom treble hooks.

I don't have one; but if I were throwing 10XDs, I'd throw it on the Low Down Custom 7'9" MH (rated for 1-5oz baits) has a strong backbone with a moderate fast parabolic action. It's more expensive than your price point, and currently sold out.

Go with the Ark Rods "Crankbait" Series. They are priced right at $149.99 and are amazing! They have 3 models to choose from...7'0, 7'4, and 7'10. They are glass rods and handle any crankbait that you want to throw.

My two deep cranking rods right now are a Kistler Mark Rose and a Halo Cranking II Rod. I have used Castaway, Dobyns, and Falcon as well. For your price point I would highly recommend the Halo for $139.
