I just bought a blue max combo about a month ago from Wal-Mart and i was wondering if its a good deep cranking combo its got a medium heavy rod that's 7ft in length and a 7.1.1 gear ratio on the reel [Linked Image]

Good combo for a good price, I bet. YOU CAN fish deep crankbaits with it, but you will probably get pretty tired, doing it. My deep CB reels are actually in the 5.1:1 to 5.6:1 rancge, but I like keeping by CB in the strike zone longer than most people. I have caught more fish in the slower zones. UNLESS they are feeding rapidly and schooling, then a 7 gear ratio is preferable. At least for me. It WILL work, but you probably need to start getting some exercise on your arms. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
