Crankbait Rod

4 posts in this topic

I have been using a real lite action graphite rod, any suggestions on a glass rod that a person can purchase and not spend an arm and a leg on. Want to use it for Bass cranks, long casting, possible deep water. Would a 1-piece rod be better, (all I have now is 1-piece). Some advice would really be appreciated.

St. Croix Pro Glass rods are great. I use 7 foot rods for cranking bass, and the actions on the St. Croix rods are great. As far as glass rods, they are also very lightweight.

Rippin',

I have a suggestion for you- give my dad a call. He makes and sells custom made rods. He can get pretty much any blank known to man and makes them according to the specs you want. He'll have a lot of info and suggestions for you- he's been fishing for over 50 years and making rods for a long time.
His name is Rod Engel and his number is (218) 891-4415. You can also e-mail him at: rodsbyengel@netscape.net
He'll make a rod with the same components as anything you buy in a store, but he'll peronalize it for you and take the time and effort to see that it's done well- he isn't making 50,000 rods a year like the big companies are. I have yet to hear of anyone who he's made a rod for who wasn't completely happy.
Scoot

    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
